Measuring DevOps can be challenging, so how do you report the impact of your team’s work to all the stakeholders? While operational metrics are great, they don’t necessarily translate the value DevOps brings to your organization in terms of business or economic impact.

This webinar will introduce the CloudBees pillars of DevOps business value: operational efficiency, resource optimization and downstream KPI impact, and show you how to translate efficiency gains and common metrics into quantified economic figures. With hard output like that, you’ll be able to gain visibility for your accomplishments and win executive and organizational backing for your desired DevOps improvements and enterprise initiatives.
