  2. 2. v With insights from more than 20,000 technical professionals over the past four years, the Puppet Labs State of DevOps Report has shed more light on DevOps, IT performance and organizational performance than any other research of its kind. This year’s report sought to analyze more deeply the practices that affect IT and organizational performance, and the role IT leaders play in a DevOps transformation.

C-level Executive Consultant Development/Engineering DevOps Information Security IT Operations Network Operations Product Management Professional Services QA Sales Engineering Release Engineering Other 2% 2% 6% 5% 27% 35% 19% 1% 1% 1% 1% 1% 1% This year’s survey saw an increase in DevOps departments. Nineteen percent of respondents were part of a DevOps department, up from 16 percent last year. Who Took The Survey Departments 4,976 respondents completed the survey.
  4. 4. v m 200x faster deployments, 60% fewer failures DevOps practices enable organizations to move faster without sacrificing reliability and stability. Compared to their lower-performing peers, high performers: • Deploy 30 times more frequently and 200 times faster • Experience 60% fewer service disruptions due to change failures • Recover 168 times faster when they do experience failure
  5. 5. DevOps: It’s not just for greenfield projects. Our research shows it doesn't matter how old or new your systems are; high performance can be achieved if the application is architected for testability and deployability. So if you think you can't implement DevOps practices because your app runs on a mainframe, think again.
  6. 6. Do you dread deployments? Are you afraid changes will break everything, taking your services down, forcing people to work overtime, and attracting unwelcome attention from upper management? We found that the more painful code deployments are, the poorer the IT performance, organizational performance, and culture. So if you want to know how your team is doing, just ask them, “How painful are deployments?”
  7. 7. Common deployment problems include: • Changes that often result in failures and are difficult to diagnose and fix. • Dev, test and staging environments that are different from production environments, causing failures when builds are promoted. • Lots of handoffs between teams, resulting in slow, inefficient deployments. • Lots of manual work required to deploy.
  8. 8. Burnout Burnout is associated with pathological cultures and unproductive, wasteful work. The consequences are huge, both for individuals and for organizations — but you can fix the conditions leading to burnout: • Foster a supportive work environment. • Ensure work is meaningful. • Make sure employees know how their own work ties to strategic objectives. Burnout can be prevented, and DevOps can help.
  9. 9. Where are the women? Teams with more women have higher collective intelligence, and the presence of women leaders correlates to stronger financial performance. Yet organizations are failing to recruit and retain women in technical fields. So what’s keeping women and other underrepresented groups out of tech? Nothing more than the pervasive belief that men are more suited to technical work by their very nature.
  10. 10. One third of survey respondents work on teams with no women. More than half of survey respondents work on teams with less than 10% women. One third of survey respondents work on teams with no women.
  11. 11. Here are some resources that can help: We can do better than this. It’s up to all of us to prioritize diversity and promote inclusive environments. It’s better for your team, and better for the business.
