CloudBees DevOptics Provides Actionable Insights into DevOps Performance

CloudBees,
Inc., the enterprise DevOps leader powering the continuous economy,
today announced new capabilities within CloudBees DevOptics that make it
the only solution purpose-built to provide real-time value stream
visibility and insights to monitor, measure and manage DevOps
performance across the organization. The new functionality solves a
major issue organizations face when adopting DevOps practices: They are
investing in new ways of delivering software, but at the same time
struggling to understand the impact their investment has on the business.

The Value of Measuring DevOps

Measuring the same set of key indicators popularized in the annual
DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) State of DevOps Report,
CloudBees DevOptics gives executives, managers and practitioners the
ability to better understand DevOps performance and evaluate the impact
of DevOps investments.

The four key metrics called out in the 2017 State of DevOps Report
are: Deployment Frequency, Mean Lead Time, Mean Time to Recover and
Change Failure Rate. These metrics provide clear, objective measures of
DevOps effectiveness to identify problem areas, make changes in
processes and automation, and continuously improve the way teams work.

“Identifying the right performance indicators and committing to a
streamlined measurement process can make the difference between a
successful and a less than optimal DevOps implementation,” said Dr.
Nicole Forsgren, founder and CEO, DevOps
Research and Assessment and an author of the State of DevOps
Report. “Having the ability to track these metrics and make
improvements is what DevOps is all about. The end result is improved
software delivery across the organization.”

The Value of Monitoring DevOps

Additionally, CloudBees DevOptics includes new monitoring capabilities
and associated metrics that provide a central shared services team one
view into all software delivery activity. Monitoring helps to identify
value stream waste, enabling it to be eliminated and improving the
software delivery process. With the monitoring data, you can do things
like:

Along with measuring and monitoring value stream efficiency, CloudBees
DevOptics helps organizations improve software delivery operations.
CloudBees DevOptics connects teams, tools and processes to enhance
collaboration and ensure consistency across the entire software delivery
life cycle.

“While organizations appreciate the value of DevOps in principle, they
haven’t had a good mechanism to measure its efficiency,” said Ben
Williams, senior director, product management, CloudBees. “CloudBees
DevOptics collects, analyzes and presents important indicators of DevOps
performance, giving organizations insights they can use to improve
software delivery processes, drive more value and maximize returns.”

The 2018 State of DevOps report will be available in late August
2018. You will be able to access it at: https://devops-research.com/.
