Embracing the concept of DevOps for better, quicker, cost-effective application delivery is commendable. However, unless you track or monitor your progress, you can never be too sure if your efforts are resulting in the outcomes that you expect (and deserve). You might be bridging the gaps between your development and operations teams, you might be giving them the tools they need to efficiently do their jobs, and you might also be building a culture of continuous everything. But knowing how successful (or unsuccessful) your efforts are and how happy your customers are as a result of your efforts requires you to focus on DevOps metrics.
As good customer experience continues to be the most important aspect for business success, DevOps, through the unification of development and operations tools and best practices, ensures the continuous integration, testing, and delivery of applications. But to measure the true value of DevOps, it is important to know if your efforts are paying the right dividends.
DevOps metrics allow for the continuous monitoring and assessment of the efforts of different team members, providing real-time insight into how the project is progressing towards success. There are several reasons why DevOps metrics are important:
To evaluate how your DevOps efforts are faring, Jira offers several metrics that help you gauge the success of DevOps: right from what bottlenecks you’re facing to what’s causing a snail’s pace, delivery speed and more. By paving the way for continuous value stream mapping, these Jira metrics ensure that the application you build works towards continuous improvements to the customer experience.
Here’s looking at the top four DevOps metrics that Jira provides and the relevance of each of these:
With the global DevOps market expected to be worth $23.3 billion by 2027, there is enough evidence to prove the surge in DevOps adoption. But while organizations big and small are embracing this popular concept to improve application delivery quality, speed, and agility, there is also a pressing need to evaluate how well the efforts are reaping benefits. Jira’s DevOps metrics provide a single pane of truth across the application delivery lifecycle, allowing teams to collect and view critical DevOps data including lead time for changes, change failure rate, deployment frequency, and MTTR. It helps them improve development efficiency, customer satisfaction, and business revenue.
