The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the past 5 years — but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies, system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era. Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under the microscope as well? ...

Application development has evolved significantly in recent years. Gone are the days of siloed application developer and IT teams who require months to deploy new infrastructure and have limited options for scaling and iterating on their deployments over time. Thanks to a highly competitive market and ever-increasing end-user demands, today's application development is moving in parts and/or as a whole to remote cloud infrastructures, and the advent of microservices has created a new need for distributed architectures ...
