DevOps without Measurement Is a Fail

Add to calendar

The primary goal of DevOps is to provide velocity and quality through improved collaboration. However, without a tailored measurement framework to direct efforts to the problems that matter to the customer and the business, these goals are meaningless. DevOps teams must outline relevant KPIs to measure the impact of their efforts. While keeping the end goal of a DevOps transformation in mind, it’s important to have a canonical source for the relevant metrics that is visible and understandable to all stakeholders. Focusing on success metrics empowers organizations to determine if the changes they’re making have a meaningful impact. With the right data in hand, teams are in a stronger position to leverage insights from ongoing experiments, share successes that everyone can see, and course-correct quickly when certain deployments or initiatives don’t provide the intended benefits. Tori Wieldt will walk you through a practical framework for implementing measurement and tracking for your DevOps efforts so you can provide teams with data that they can efficiently act on.
