DevOps results in improvements in software delivery performance, according to a new first-of-its-kind study by CA Technologies to quantify the benefits for companies that combine DevOps methodologies with Cloud-based tools and delivery mechanisms.

The online research study was conducted by Freeform Dynamics in early 2017, with data from almost 1000 IT Decision Makers, and indicates that companies practicing DevOps with Cloud-based tools and delivery results in:

■ 81% improvement in overall software delivery performance (over an improvement of just 52% when practicing DevOps alone or 53% when leveraging Cloud without DevOps).

■ Almost 2x faster software delivery speed.

■ 80% better predictability of software performance.

■ 66% improvement in software quality for fewer defects.

■ 69% improvement in customer experience than baseline of traditional software development and delivery models.

■ More than 2x better cost control for the tools and services that DevOps teams actually use.

The study makes direct comparisons between traditional software development and delivery methods, the use of DevOps and Cloud separately, and also with the extensive use of both together. The resulting statistics lay out definitive advantages of software delivery performance for any enterprise in terms of cost, quality and efficiency.

“Today, being built to succeed means being built to change. Working around the world with customers of all sizes, this change manifests in the move to public cloud workloads for greater flexibility, agility and cost efficiency. Our job is to ensure that companies have the choice to run their workloads where and how it makes sense. We provide the tools, technologies and services to support this hybrid approach to internal development. Now the data proves the benefits and value of the approach,” said Ayman Sayed, President and Chief Product Officer, CA Technologies.
