Velocity 2013 Day 3: DevOps and metrics

We’re talking about the devops survey with Gene Kim, James Turnbull and Jez Humble

4039 survey responses!

Lessons learned
– Don’t change questions midway in a survey
– Get a data analyst for survey analysis

Key findings
– devops teams are more agile; 30x more deployments, 8000x shorter lead times
– devops teams are more reliable;
– most teams use version control- 89%
– most teams use automated code deployments- 82%
– the longer you do devops, the better you get!

Hilarious John Vincent quote on devops:

Measuring culture
Trust and verify

26% of folks who responded to the survey were from the enterprise, and 16% were from 10k and plus.
The biggest barriers to devops was culture because people didn’t get it- whether it was your manager, team or outside the group. Tell people more, and wear more devops shirts!!!

DevOps continues to be a culture issue versus an issue in terms of tools and processes. James Turnbull wants us to go out there and talk to people and figure out people skills!
