Companies can expect as 81% improvement in overall software delivery performance when they combine DevOps methodologies with Cloud-based tools and delivery mechanisms.
This compares to an improvement of just 52% when practicing DevOps alone or 53% when leveraging cloud without DevOps, according to a CA Technologies study that polled almost 1 000 decision-makers.
The combination also resulted in an almost 2x faster software delivery speed.
IT offered 80% better predictability of software performance, a 66% improvement in software quality for fewer defects and 69% improvement in customer experience than baseline of traditional software development and delivery models.
The methods also showed a more than 2x better cost control for the tools and services that DevOps teams actually use.
The study makes direct comparisons between traditional software development and delivery methods, the use of DevOps and Cloud separately, and also with the extensive use of both together. The resulting statistics lay out definitive advantages of software delivery performance for any enterprise in terms of cost, quality and efficiency.
“Today, being built to succeed means being built to change,” says Andrea Lodolo, chief technology officer of CA Southern Africa. “Working around the world with customers of all sizes, this change manifests in the move to public cloud workloads for greater flexibility, agility and cost efficiency.
“Our job is to ensure that companies have the choice to run their workloads where and how it makes sense. We provide the tools, technologies and services to support this hybrid approach to internal development. Now the data proves the benefits and value of the approach.”
CA has introduced new software to meet customer needs in any deployment. Innovations supporting microservices and container-based architectures, and driving overall modernization with machine learning and advanced analytics.
