Metrics For DevOps Initiatives
Advancing the state of measurement practice is an important foundation for improving software delivery economics. This paper summarizes a position on DevOps measurement that we intend to be a catalyst for accelerating more mature guidance on measuring and steering software delivery.
“DevOps teams and professionals want to push new ideas and new ways of doing things. Metrics objectively help teams distinguish between improvements and unproductive changes.”
“Accepting continuous change in software drives our belief in that we need different thinking to drive measurement and metrics for DevOps.”
“By using key metrics tactics, one SaaS team was able to reduce their high severity incidents from 3,000 a week to 600 a week... Now they have time to look into the real issues and fix the true underlying problems."
“Steering software delivery projects is more a discipline of economics than it is of engineering. Unlike most mature engineering disciplines, software delivery is a nondeterministic endeavor with more uncertainty to be managed."
