We will be presenting a session on the business value of DevOps at Drupalcon Amsterdam and would greatly appreciate your response to this (very) brief survey on Drupal and DevOps from a business perspective.
The wordy version:
At the upcoming Drupalcon in Amsterdam, Adrian Rollett and I will be presenting work we did to derive the true business value of the DevOps activities within Bluespark through real life analysis. This will be a particularly useful session for those who either plan on, or are in the process of introducing devops within their organization and need some concrete arguments to help them with the process.
To measure the success of DevOps implementations within Bluespark, we developed a framework that allows us to quantify various aspects of our processes into specific business gains. We then inspected a number of different projects, analyzing a range of issues such as time logs, number of times a specific activity took place, etc. As a result we were able to quantify the efficiencies gained by implementing automated testing, continuous integration and other DevOps principles. We will be presenting this framework and the results obtained in Amsterdam.
In addition, we are seeking to get a sense of the current adoption of DevOps in the Drupal world from a business perspective. We have created a very brief survey to gather this information. This is a complementary effort to the very excellent and more technically-oriented survey that is planned (http://www.krisbuytaert.be/blog/upcoming-conferences) for a different Drupalcon session. We will of course be sharing the insights we gather with the entire community.
Many thanks in advance for your responses, and we hope to see you in Amsterdam!
