Metrics of Software Delivery

The “golden metrics” of software delivery performance are:

  • Deployment frequency
    • How frequently is the team deploying?
  • Lead time for changes
    • How long does it take to get code successfully running in production?
  • Time to restore service
    • How long does it take to recover from an incident?
  • Change failure rate
    • What percentage of changes to production result in degraded service?
