Continuous delivery (CD) is the ability to deploy changes to production as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality and security. On the surface, it might sound like a tool that can deploy changes to production as a CD tool, but that's not the case. Continuous delivery is about automating all the steps from a push to a code repository all the way until a release is deployed to production. As such, Argo CD doesn't fit that description. Here's what we want to achieve from any CI/CD tool.
