GitHub Actions helps your team work faster at scale. When large repositories start using GitHub Actions, teams merge significantly more pull requests per day, and the pull requests are merged significantly faster. For more information, see "Writing and shipping code faster" in the State of the Octoverse.
GitHub Actions also provides greater control over deployments. For example, you can use environments to require approval for a job to proceed, restrict which branches can trigger a workflow, or limit access to secrets.
GitHub Actions is developer friendly, because it's integrated directly into the familiar GitHub Enterprise Server experience.
You can create your own unique automations, or you can use and adapt workflows from our ecosystem of over 10,000 actions built by industry leaders and the open source community. For more information, see "Finding and customizing actions."
You can control your own private CI/CD infrastructure by using self-hosted runners. Self-hosted runners allow you to determine the exact environment and resources that complete your builds, testing, and deployments, without exposing your software development cycle to the internet. For more information, see "About self-hosted runners."
GitHub Actions also includes tools to govern your enterprise's software development cycle and meet compliance obligations. For more information, see "Enforcing policies for GitHub Actions in your enterprise."
