According to the new Accelerate: State of DevOps 2018: Strategies for a New Economy report, elite DevOps performers have more frequent code deployments, faster lead times, lower change failure rates, and far quicker incident recovery times. And that’s just the beginning.
This year’s report reflects a fundamental industry change in how software and technology are viewed: What we referred to as IT performance in earlier research is now referred to as software delivery performance to differentiate this work from IT helpdesk and other support functions.
The ability to leverage this high-value performance is a key differentiator for organizations. Those that develop and deliver quickly are better able to experiment with ways to increase customer adoption and satisfaction, pivot when necessary, and keep up with compliance and regulatory demands.
This report highlights that any team in any industry, whether subject to a high degree of regulatory compliance or not—across all industry verticals—has the ability to achieve a high degree of software delivery performance. We classify teams into high, medium, and low performers and find that they exist in all organization types and industry verticals. You’ll find these classifications referenced throughout the report.
