This session is an introduction to the four DORA metrics like deployment frequency (DF), lead time for changes (MLT), mean time to recovery (MTTR), and change failure rate (CFR). We will discuss what they are, what they mean, and specifically why testers should be concerned with improving these metrics.
DORA Metrics, crafted by brilliant minds of Google, serves as a GPS for DevOps teams, guiding them toward peak performance. These metrics are sharpened from data taken from thousands of organizations and offer a panoramic view of DevOps performance.
The four cardinal metrics, Deployment Frequency, Lead Time for Changes, Time to Restore Service, and Change Failure Rate, act as signposts, helping organizations pinpoint and remove roadblocks in their software delivery journey, thus propelling their DevOps teams toward unparalleled success.
Like a compass for a ship, DORA Metrics guides software development companies, IT departments, and other organizations that rely on software delivery, through choppy waters of performance measurement. These metrics act as a lighthouse, illuminating bottlenecks in the software delivery process, and charting a course toward organizational excellence. They are most trusted & widely used by many organizations.
