Deploying 5+ Releases a Day in Fintech Domain

In iyzico (one of the biggest FinTech companies in Turkey), we define agility as “the capability of deploying multiple releases a day to production environments”. In 2019, we deployed 1.409 releases to production and this continuous delivery in a highly regulated domain has too many challenges. In this talk we will talk about the main challenges of continuous delivery process in FinTech domain. The main questions to be discussed:

  • How do we improve quality assurance of our products while deploying 5+ times a day?
  • What are the test types?
  • How do we measure “Quality”?
  • How do we manage dependencies between the Circles (teams)?
  • What are the testing strategies and deployment strategies?
  • How do we monitor our products?
  • What are the challenges of continuous delivery in a highly regulated domain?
