Plandek provides the DORA metrics and drill-downs to drive your Agile DevOps success

The four DORA metrics were conceived by Google’s DevOps Research and Assessments team.  They are the outcome of several years’ research into software engineering team effectiveness. 

The DORA metrics are the four key DevOps metrics that teams can measure to provide a balanced view of their Agile delivery performance. The four DORA metrics are:

Deployment Frequency (also called: DF, deploy frequency)
The frequency at which new releases deploy to production
Change Failure Rate (also called: CFR, change fail percentage)
The percentage of deployments causing a failure in production
The time between commit to production
Mean Time to Restore (also called: MTTR, mean time to recover
How long it takes an organization to recover from a failure in production

Create a customised DORA metrics dashboard in Plandek

Plandek integrates across your DevOps toolchain and enables you to surface a wide range of engineering, delivery and DevOps metrics, including the DORA metrics (and the Flow Metrics).

Plandek enables you to create metrics dashboards configured to reflect your delivery organisation – so you can view DORA metrics company-wide; by tribe, Release Train, programme, Team etc.  

And you can customise your own dashboard to include the DORA metrics, or choose a pre-configured selection.

Plandek enables you to leverage the power of the DORA metrics

In order for the DORA metrics to be of real benefit, you need to be able to view the DORA metrics themselves and the related second-order metrics and drill-downs necessary to drive their improvement.

Plandek is unique: 

  • Surface the DORA metrics in real-time with no effort
  • View the metrics at relevant levels within your organisation (e.g. by business unit; by programme, by value stream, by release train, Team etc)
  • Drill-down and filter to understand why the DORA metric is trending as it is
  • Surface the second-order (determinant) metrics that directly impact the DORA metrics 

Plandek surfaces the second-order DevOps metrics needed to drive improvement in the DORA metrics

Our experience within delivery teams at clients globally suggests that the second-order metrics presented in the graphic below are very helpful when looking to successfully implement the DORA metrics.

Plandek surfaces all these metrics and thereby underpins your continuous improvement effort, led from the team-level upwards.

DORA metrics and related ‘second-order’ DevOps, engineering and Agile delivery metrics

Plandek is trusted by clients globally to track and drive the DORA metrics
