Executive Opinion

Lachlan Donald, CEO, and co-founder, Buildkite, said, "A good litmus test for how well a company is run is their approach to CI/CD. When CI/CD doesn’t work, it shows throughout the entire organization - teams slow down, products are delayed and customers turn elsewhere. We want every company to feel confident in their ability to test, build and release software as fast as possible. Buildkite helps companies achieve breakthroughs by giving them the ability to scale and have absolute trust that they are releasing the best software."

Mackey Craven, Partner, OpenView, said, "The needs for scale today are completely different from the needs for scale yesterday. The global pandemic and the resulting economic uncertainty underlines the importance for companies to maximize efficiencies and build for growth. As the world continues to build digital-first applications, we believe Buildkite’s unique approach will be the new enterprise standard of CI/CD and we’re excited to be supporting them in realizing this ambition."
