In 2017, Target’s engineering team embarked on a journey to facilitate rapid software delivery to Target stores to enable innovation and quick response to ever-evolving business needs. The team had to build a safe and expedient continuous delivery pipeline to 1,800 deployment targets. The method of deploying code in the home-grown platform was cumbersome and not adherent to best practices of cloud platforms. These shortcomings led Target to adopt Spinnaker.
Spinnaker integrated with Jenkins is already being used at scale within Target, supporting deploying to all major public cloud providers, and ensured software deployment best practices.
