DevOps Maturity: What Does "Good" Look Like?

In this talk we’ll present a formal, data-based DevOps maturity model as well as walk through examples of high functioning DevOps organizations.

We’ll talk about the underlying concepts of “maturity,” how to measure such an ephemeral concept, and start laying the groundwork for understanding not only what our goal is, but why that is our goal.

There are two ways to think about DevOps Maturity. The first can be pictured as a line graph with an X axis expressing the width of collaboration and and a Y axis of the depth of automation, The second is to picture a mature organization as one that has produced a collaborative, empowered culture with a governance structure that has allowed repeatable, highly automated practices and processes to emerge. There are ways to measure state against this ideal and track progress towards it that we’ll explore.
