Often development teams struggle to classify the KPIs that demonstrate the significance of the DevOps on the business. Inability to find the right metrics for DevOps initiatives is one of the reasons. With the relevant parameters in hand, you can leverage the insights you get from all the experiments. Small improvements are crucial for getting considerable returns. In this article at TechBeacon, Ann Marie Fred and Craig Cook explain how to eliminate your DevOps delusions and adjust expectations. You can capitalize on them to make transformative decisions.
Identify the Problem
There are many ways to find the problem areas, like visualizing the best ways to automate. Make an informed decision by investing time on these six metrics:
Be Open to Accelerate
Calculate the availability of the DevOps team by:
Duration of all outages reported by a primary production monitor – Total time
It encourages the team to ensure if their production monitors accurately measure the end-user experience. Moreover, it would help them focus on upgrading the services that are not meeting goals.
Restrict the Work-in-Progress
By limiting the progressing work, you can help your team improve the total output. So, it is better to finish one project instead of initiating all together and finishing none. The work-in-progress metric counts the number of issues open in each interface. If the quantity gets higher, then stop it and focus on the ongoing work. It would help in upgrading the overall pace.
The repository speed score depends on the shift in time from submission to merger. An ideal score over the average time per pull request is zero to two weekdays, dipping to zero at five weekdays. The old pull requests also are lost, affecting the repository speed.
As you work with more repositories, keeping track of all the pull requests becomes difficult. The actual objective is to keep the microservice architecture flexible using APIs between different services.
Frequency of Deployment
The frequency of deployment depends on the range of successful implementations over the past one month. Deployment frequency is the key to accelerate and back up continuous delivery. In some cases, it is the strategy to set up CI/CD pipeline set up within a few days. It ensures security vulnerabilities and automation of the process.
An integrated SonarQube reporting in your CI/CD process improves the overall security scores, code quality, and test coverage in the dashboard. By showcasing it, DevOps teams may ask for more time to enhance scores. Nonetheless, the developers and code reviewers must have the honesty to maintain code coverage.
