DevOps — why it pays to demonstrate impact

  1. Lead Time: This is the measure of time it takes from code commit to the time the code is successfully running in production. If you can prove that this is vastly reduced, then you are onto a winner.
  2. Deployment Frequency: This is the frequency at which deployment to production is completed. Again, if you can demonstrate a drastic reduction in the time it takes to move from deployment to production, this will demonstrate significant ROI.
  3. Mean Time To Recovery (MTTR): This is about logging the average time to restore service after a failure. Often the best way to capture this is by automated tests specifically designed to simulate multiple failure scenarios.
  4. Change fail percentage: The measure of how often deployments fail and require immediate remedy or rollback in production. This gives us a picture of the quality of the work coming through the pipeline.
