What a Difference DevOps Makes
Automation is impacting every aspect of today's most innovative and fastest moving enterprises - particularly when it comes to technical professionals.
Puppet's new 2017 State of DevOps Report, for example, revealed that the highest performing organizations have automated 72 percent of all configuration management processes.
Those same high performers spend much less time (28 percent) struggling with manual configuration processes which tend to limit innovation and slow or stall deployments. By comparison, low performers are spending almost half of their time (46 percent) on manual configuration according to the Puppet report.
"Every company relies on software to make its business more powerful, forcing IT organizations to evolve and ship software on demand," said Nigel Kersten, chief technical strategist, Puppet.
"The results of the 2017 State of DevOps Report show that high-performing IT teams are deploying more frequently and recovering faster than ever before, yet the automation gap between high and low performing teams continues to grow. The report will help organizations understand how to identify their own inhibitors and embrace change on their DevOps journey."
