In DevOps news this week, CloudBees and Accelerated Strategies Group share the results of their State of Software Delivery Management 2020 report. In it they unveil that 65% of surveyed organizations are unable to accurately quantify the cost of feature delivery delays and 84% responded that the inaccessibility of information impedes their ability to do their work or make data-driven decisions. Despite being years into the DevOps movement, the report finds that silos remain a challenge for frontline workers’ ability to progress their work.
To address a lack of SDM maturity in organizations, the report writers name three areas organizations can look to where SDM can have the most positive effect on their work:
- Quantify the impact of investments in software delivery
- The capability of software delivery teams to communicate and collaborate
- End-to-end visibility into the value flow of software delivery streams
