The second annual survey results revealed accelerating adoption of DevOps practices in IT organizations across companies of all sizes. Sixty-three percent of respondents have implemented DevOps practices, a 26 percent increase in adoption rate since 2011.1
Respondents from organizations that implemented DevOps reported improved software deployment quality and more frequent software releases. Our findings substantiate the business value of DevOps too: it enables high performance by increasing agility and reliability.
We found that high performing organizations:
- Ship code 30x faster
- Complete those deployments 8,000x faster than their peers.
- Have 50% fewer failures and restore service 12x faster than their peers.
Respondents of both the 2011 and 2012 survey are likely to be early adopters, making the increase in DevOps adoption rate much more telling of the overall growth of DevOps during this time period. Not surprisingly, organizations that have implemented DevOps practices are up to five times more likely to be high performing than those that have not. In fact, the longer organizations have been using DevOps practices, the better their performance: the best are getting better.
