Google Cloud and the DORA research team are excited to announce our eight sponsors for the 2021 State of DevOps report. We recently launched the 2021 State of DevOps survey, a 25-min survey for the DevOps community to share how they are using DevOps to improve software delivery performance. So if you haven’t taken the survey yet, this is your chance!
For those unfamiliar with the State Of DevOps report, it is the largest and longest running research of its kind. It provides an independent view into how teams and companies can drive powerful business outcomes, no matter what stage of the DevOps journey
With the State of DevOps reports we aim to capture how teams and companies are driving excellence in technology delivery through the implementation of DevOps practices, no matter what stage of the DevOps journey your team is in. If you’re wondering how your team measures up in your industry take our DevOps Quick Check and discover which capabilities you should focus on to improve your performance.
To capture a diverse array of information on how those in the DevOps community are performing, our eight sponsors of the 2021 State of DevOps survey are focussed on helping organizations of all sizes and industries to develop and deliver software faster across the whole DevOps lifecycle. Captured below, you’ll find more information on our sponsors for this year and why they chose to sponsor the State Of the DevOps 2021 Report.
