Four Key Metrics for a Software Development Team#
Deployment Frequency — How often an organization successfully releases to production.
Lead Time for Changes — The amount of time it takes a commit to get into production.
Change Failure Rate — The percentage of deployments causing a failure in production.
Time to Restore Service — How long it takes an organization to recover from a failure in production.
The metrics describe infrastructure platform maturity. On-demand deployments with lead time under 1 hour, and failure rate under 15% of deployments is considered “Elite”.
