DevOps is now the top software deployment strategy by a mile — 77% of organizations say they use the approach to roll out new software. This is good news because a DevOps approach is an important marker of business maturity, and its benefits (more on that later) are so tangible that most organizations don’t need to be convinced that DevOps is the future.
The bad news is most organizations are getting DevOps wrong, which is probably why only 10% report that their organization is “very successful” at achieving rapid software development and deployment. My company started its DevOps journey in 2019 as we began to build out the next generation of our ERP software. We were committed to the strategy but made mistakes along the way.
