The 2017 State of DevOps Report is Out!

Check out the full post on the Electric Cloud blog.


The State of DevOps Report is the most comprehensive and longest-running study of DevOps practices. Over the past six years, 27,000 responses from technical professionals around the world have provided strong evidence that DevOps practices yield remarkable results.ere are just a few of the key findings you’ll find in the new 2017 State of DevOps Report:

  • Transformational leaders share five common characteristics that significantly shape an organization’s culture and practices, leading to high performance.
  • High-performing teams continue to achieve both faster throughput and better stability.
  • High performers automate significantly more of their configuration management, testing, deployments and change approval processes than other teams.
  • DevOps applies to all organizations. High performers are twice as likely to achieve their own reported goals across both financial and non-financial measures.
  • Loosely coupled architectures and teams are the strongest predictor of continuous delivery.
  • Lean product management drives higher organizational performance.
