Today, Google Cloud and the DORA research team are excited to announce the launch of the 2021 State of DevOps survey. The survey takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and we’d love to hear from you. Your answers will allow us to better understand the practices that teams are employing to improve software delivery performance and inturn generate powerful business outcomes.
The State of DevOps report by Google Cloud and the DORA research team is the largest and longest running research of its kind. It provides an independent view into the practices and capabilities that organizations, irrespective of their size, industry, and region can employ to drive better performance.
Like the past six research reports, our goal this year is to perform detailed analysis to help various teams benchmark their performance against the industry as elite, high, medium, or low performers. We also look to show specific strategies that teams can employ to improve their performance.
The table below highlights elite, high, medium, and low performers at a glance from the last report.
Achieving elite performance is a team endeavor and diverse, inclusive teams drive the best performance. The research program benefits from the participation of a diverse group of people. Please help us encourage more voices by sharing this survey with your network, especially with your colleagues from underrepresented parts of our industry.
The survey is for everyone, regardless of where you are on your DevOps journey, the size of your organization, or your organization’s industry. There are no right or wrong answers, in fact we often hear feedback that questions in the survey prompt ideas for improvement. Many of these ideas can be put into practice immediately.
Some of the key topics we look to deep dive into this year include:
- Metrics and Measurement: Practices employed by high performing teams
- SRE and DevOps: How do they fit together and how they impact performance
- How to best integrate security & compliance as a part of your app development
- The impact of cloud, monitoring & observability, open source, and documentation on performance
- Distributed teams: Practices to improve work/life balance and reduce burnout
- The state of multi-cloud computing
Help us shape the future of DevOps and make your voice heard by completing the survey now.
The survey will remain open until midnight PST on June 11, 2021. We look forward to hearing from you.
