DevOps Adoption Accelerating, Puppet Labs Survey Results Indicate 
High-Performing Organizations Enabled by DevOps Deploy Code 30 Times
More Frequently With 50% Fewer Failures 
PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/13 --  Puppet Labs, a leading
provider of IT automation software for system administrators, today
released the results of its annual DevOps Survey, which revealed
accelerating adoption of DevOps practices in organizations of all
sizes, from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.  
Organizations that have implemented DevOps practices are up to five
times more likely to be high-performing than those that have not and
the more mature the DevOps implementation, the better their
performance. These breakthrough results indicate a tipping point in
the DevOps movement because for the first time ever, DevOps is proven
to increase agility and reliability. 
"We knew DevOps was making a positive impact in the industry and now
we have the metrics to prove it," said James Turnbull, VP of Client
Services at Puppet Labs. "Adopting DevOps practices has made
companies more agile, more innovative, and better than their
competition at managing their infrastructure and applications."
