Keys to DevOps Success

Findings from The 2018 Accelerate State of DevOps Report

Accelerating and streamlining software delivery is a common challenge faced by almost every IT leader. We have partnered with Gene Kim and the DevOps Research and Assessment team to create this year’s version of ‘The Accelerate State of DevOps Report’. This report is the result of five years of research–with over 30,000 data points–to understand high performance in the context of software development, and the factors that predict it.

Join us as we discuss the latest key findings in the 2018 report and share observations from the GitLab team, where we are practicing DevOps and helping our customers accelerate their software delivery.

What we cover:

  • Software delivery performance unlocks several competitive advantages including increased profitability, productivity, market share, customer service, and ability to achieve organization or mission goals.
  • Not just using cloud infrastructure, but implementing cloud as it’s intended to be used, contributes to high performance.
  • Outsourcing may save money in the short term, but is much more likely to contribute to low performance
  • Identifying key technological practices can drive high performance across your organization (and evidence that industry vertical doesn’t matter)
