2016 State of DevOps Report

cover  State of DevOps Report

Presented by Puppet and DORA

Featuring data on IT performance, employee engagement, ROI and more

Over the last five years, we’ve surveyed more than 25,000 technical professionals worldwide to better understand how DevOps practices impact IT and organizational performance.

We’ve looked closely at lean management practices, application architecture, the role of IT managers in a DevOps transformation, diversity, deployment pain and burnout.

And we’ve confirmed that there’s a lot more to IT performance than technical practices; organizations need to invest just as much in their people as they do in their technology.

This year, we look at the role of experimentation, how to integrate security into DevOps, the ROI of DevOps and more.

Key findings

  • High-performing organizations decisively outperform their lower-performing peers. They deploy 200 times more frequently, with 2,555 times faster lead times, recover 24 times faster, and have three times lower change failure rates.
  • High performers have better employee loyalty, as measured by employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS).
  • High-performing organizations spend 22 percent less time on unplanned work and rework. They are able to spend 29 percent more time on new work, such as new features or code.
  • Taking an experimental approach to product development can improve performance. 
  • Undertaking a technology transformation initiative can produce sizeable returns for any organization.Using key metrics, we’ve provided formulas to help you quantify potential cost savings.
