That’s a fallacy. Many of the most glaring blind spots that wreak havoc on CX exist outside the environment that CI/CD/CT is able to “see.” CI/CD/CT, even when supported by application performance monitoring (APM), doesn’t and cannot monitor for and alert to blind spots across the internet stack. And there are many. Only internet performance monitoring (IPM) can take CI/CD/CT as input streams and shift to continuous resilience as a measurable outcome.
