Buildpan solves all the problems existing in the manual traditional process to build, test and deploy mobile applications. Sole purpose of buildpan CI/CD lies in providing high time efficiency & low development cost for mobile applications.

A study found that 60% of the mobile developers face these 2 challenges mostly::

Fix​ ​Broken​ ​Builds​ ​Faster

Developers​ ​can​ ​waste​ ​hours​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​identify​ ​which​ ​code​ ​changes​ ​caused​ ​an​ ​application​ ​to break.​ ​With​ ​multiple​ ​team​ ​members​ ​working​ ​on​ ​the​ ​same​ ​code​ ​base,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​not​ ​uncommon​ ​for​ ​one person’s​ ​change​ ​to​ ​break​ ​another​ ​person’s​ ​code​ ​or​ ​vice​ ​versa.​ ​When​ ​team​ ​members​ ​wait​ ​too long​ ​to​ ​check​ ​in​ ​code​ ​or​ ​only​ ​run​ ​unit​ ​tests​ ​on​ ​occasion,​ ​it​ ​becomes​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​figure​ ​out​ ​which​ ​code changes​ ​“broke​ ​the​ ​build”.

Mobile​ ​teams​ ​implement​ ​CI​ ​processes​ ​to​ ​encourage​ ​team​ ​members​ ​to​ ​check-in​ ​their​ ​code​ ​on​ ​a regular​ ​basis,​ ​triggering​ ​automatic​ ​builds​ ​and​ ​the​ ​execution​ ​of​ ​Unit​ ​and​ ​UI​ ​tests.​ ​This​ ​ensures​ ​that new​ ​additions​ ​don’t​ ​break​ ​the​ ​functioning​ ​work​ ​that​ ​came​ ​before​ ​them,​ ​and​ ​developers​ ​whose code​ ​does​ ​in​ ​fact​ ​“break​ ​the​ ​build”​ ​can​ ​be​ ​notified​ ​quickly​ ​and​ ​resolve​ ​the​ ​issue.

Deploy​ ​Features​ ​and​ ​Bug​ ​Fixes​ ​More​ ​Frequently

Deploying​ ​mobile​ ​applications​ ​can​ ​be​ ​slow,​ ​confusing,​ ​and​ ​error​ ​prone,​ ​due​ ​to​ ​the​ ​complex requirements​ ​mandated​ ​by​ ​​Apple​ ​and​ ​Google.​ ​​​Fewer​ ​deployments​ ​mean​ ​less​ ​feedback​ ​from stakeholders​ ​which​ ​can​ ​result​ ​in​ ​lower​ ​quality​ ​applications.

Mobile​ ​development​ ​teams​ ​implement​ ​continuous​ ​deployment​ ​processes​ ​to​ ​minimize​ ​the​ ​manual steps​ ​it​ ​takes​ ​to​ ​distribute​ ​and​ ​install​ ​mobile​ ​applications.​ ​Allowing​ ​them​ ​to​ ​deploy​ ​any​ ​version​ ​of an​ ​app​ ​to​ ​an​ ​individual,​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​testers​ ​or​ ​stakeholders,​ ​or​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Apple​ ​App​ ​Store​ ​or​ ​Google Play​ ​Store.

BuildPan CI/CD makes it super easy for the developers to go through the above manual hurdles helping development teams to save cost and time.
