Happy Teams, Happy Users: The State of DevOps
Why do we need to transform? Or improve? Why should we “DevOps”? We know that technology drives value and innovation in every organization. High-performing technology teams focus on capabilities that maintain happy users and happy teams. These teams focus on not only technical capabilities, but process, measurement, and cultural capabilities. While there is no easy button for maintaining, improving, or transforming a high-performing technology team, the DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) multi-year research program uses behavioral science to validate the most effective and efficient ways to develop and deliver software. Maintaining happy users and happy teams is a journey. We will discuss the key findings from the 2022 Accelerate State of DevOps Report and learn how you and your team can use the research program to transform into a high-performing technology team.
