Continuous Discussions (#c9d9): Episode 20 Recap – DevOps and CD KPIs – With Gene Kim

Earlier today I had the pleasure of speaking with Gene Kim, Patkós Csaba and my colleague Sam Fell on our bi-weekly c9d9 video chat. It was great we had DevOps Guru, Gene, joining us for this episode – where we discussed the key metrics and KPIs that you should pay attention to on your DevOps and CD journey.

Having worked with a lot of large enterprises on optimizing their software delivery pipeline, I can attest that every software organization is different, and that not all pipelines are the same. We know your process is complex, touches many stakeholders with varied requirements and responsibilities. So how do you – for your specific organization – measure agility? reliability? efficiency? quality? success?!

What does the ideal dashboard look like for Dev, for Ops, and for the Business?
