XebiaLabs Welcomes Nicole Forsgren, DevOps Measurement Expert
Implementing DevOps effectively has become one of the most impactful IT initiatives a large enterprise can do. Delivering a better customer experience through software, while cutting expensive and brittle manual processes from your application releases, has made XebiaLabs an industry leader. However, outside of our clients, we see more than 50% of companies struggle to measure the ROI from even basic DevOps initiatives.* Changing that requires metrics—measuring your DevOps value stream so you can fully capitalize on your software delivery pipeline. The trick is figuring out where to start.That’s why I’m thrilled to welcome Dr. Nicole Forsgren as Strategic Advisor to the XebiaLabs board of directors. As CEO and Chief Scientist at DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA), Nicole has worked with thousands of high-performing enterprises, measuring exactly how they’ve succeeded in using DevOps to drive the profitability of their application development and delivery. An IT impacts expert, she has served as the lead investigator on the largest DevOps studies to date, working alongside other DevOps thought leaders, like Gene Kim and Jez Humble. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Nicole in the past, most recently on a joint webinar on measuring DevOps success (a must see for getting started with DevOps metrics). In her new, advisory role, Nicole will offer invaluable input on how complex enterprises can use metrics to streamline, scale, and accelerate time to value of their delivery process. Nicole’s expertise will be critical in helping us further solidify our position as the standard bearer of Enterprise DevOps Platforms. Welcome to XebiaLabs, Nicole. We’re excited to have you on board!
