New Data From Almost 1000 Global Respondents Cite
Substantial Performance and Business Benefits From Cloud-Based Tools for
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today released a first-of-its-kind study
to quantify the benefits for companies that combine DevOps methodologies
with Cloud-based tools and delivery mechanisms. The new data from almost
1000 IT Decision Makers was revealed at the company's first annual Built
to Change Summit, and supported the announcement of innovations
across the CA portfolio.
The online research study was conducted by Freeform Dynamics in early
2017 and indicates that companies practicing DevOps with Cloud-based
tools and delivery results in:
81% improvement in overall software delivery performance (over an
improvement of just 52% when practicing DevOps alone or 53% when
leveraging Cloud without DevOps).
Almost 2x faster software delivery speed.
80% better predictability of software performance.
66% improvement in software quality for fewer defects.
69% improvement in customer experience than baseline of traditional
software development and delivery models.
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. 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," said Ayman Sayed, president and chief product officer, CA
