Wednesday, January 11, 2017
In today’s fiercely competitive environment for customer satisfaction and brand loyalty, agile and DevOps are driving happier customers and employees.
The results from a new CA Technologies global study reveal that advanced users of agile or DevOps realized significant increases of up to 52 percent in customer satisfaction and up to 50 percent in employee productivity. The survey was conducted by Coleman Parkes Research Ltd. in May-June, 2016 and included 1,770 senior business and IT executives from large enterprises, across 21 countries and 10 industry sectors.

- Users of both methods also reported an increase of up to 45 percent in employee productivity.
- Further, respondents found that adding DevOps practices to an agile working environment:
Improves customer experience by an additional 34 percent; and 78 percent of users who paired Agile and DevOps report an increase in customer satisfaction, versus only 58 percent of agile-only users.
