Benefits of Using a Perforce CI/CD


Continuous Deployment

The main benefit of continuous deployment is that any changes made to a project’s source code are automatically implemented in the deployed product. There is no need to take a product off your website or the app store so that you can work on fixing the bugs. With continuous deployment, you can correct mistakes or malfunctioning features as soon as you see them.


Perforce Continuous Integration in the Cloud

Travis CI allows you to use Perforce CI/CD tools in the cloud. Using Perforce continuous integration in the cloud prevents your server from having to carry the heavy weight of giant file sizes. Cloud hosting also offers several security benefits that traditional on-prem hosting does not.


Test Code for Vulnerabilities

Using Travis CI as continuous deployment software gives you an abundance of tools to foolproof your code before project delivery. Users can check their code repositories for vulnerabilities and fix them before the software goes public. After all of the code is clear of errors and vulnerabilities, Travis CI deploys your project to the cloud platform of your choice.


Merge Project Features

Your development team can work on several segments of your project at once with Perforce version control. While one team is working on conditional logic coding for your program, another can be working on building out user settings. At the heart of it all is management control, which allows project managers to oversee revisions to code.

Team members can work on source code segments and then request a merge, which then implements the updated work they’ve done into the complete working project. If the project lead finds something faulty with the written code, then they can send it back to the coder for further revisions.

If there’s a feature on a previous project that you’re proud of, you can also duplicate that coding in your current project. Don’t waste time writing new code when you can carry over perfectly functional features you’ve already designed.

Why Use Travis CI for Perforce CI/CD Automation?

Revise Code from Anywhere

With Travis CI, logging in to make revisions and manage your project versions has never been easier. Just log into our web portal via Assembla to get connected to your Subversion projects. 

Have a team or remote workers? They can all access your file repositories from anywhere in the world. That’s the convenience of a cloud-based SVN CI/CD; you don’t have to be in the proximity of a physical server.

Shorter Code Sequences

Speaking of innovation, Travis CI is always looking for opportunities for improvement and optimization. With the efficiency of Travis CI’s code scanning feature, users can write shorter code to achieve the same results as other Perforce CI/CD automation tools. Shorter code means less time spent looking for the source of errors, greater storage space, and less confusion for new developers on your team.

Large File Cloud Storage

Our continuous deployment software has a great capacity for large file sizes. Enterprise-level companies in a variety of industries can create significantly scalable projects with Travis CI.


Perforce Game Development

Gaming graphics require a significant storage capacity. Storing an entire game project can slow down your system and leave your laptop running hot. Travis CI accommodates the entirety of your Perforce game development project with minimal lagging. With Travis CI, Perforce cloud projects won’t easily run out of space or overwhelm the server.

Perforce Film Creation

Filmmaking requires strenuous editing, and the file sizes for movies require a large capacity. Our Perforce CI/CD automation accelerates the delivery of your film project and serves as a functional tool to fuel the making of your creative masterpieces.

Film projects require significant collaboration, and with our tools for Perforce version control, the production pipeline has never been easier. Easily revert video files to previous revisions with just a few clicks and send edits to the head of your team for approval.


Perforce 3D Modeling

Perfecting your 3D modeling process is essential to provide quality products to your consumers. When you’re creating a product model from every angle, it’s not uncommon for the large file size to slow your server down. Manufacturers and product engineers alike can utilize Travis CI to speed up the production process and find product errors before the blueprint is sent out for production. Travis CI testing can work with multiple software development methodologies to bring your company the most efficient delivery possible.
