DORA Metrics

DevOps and Agile teams use DORA metrics to measure their performance and determine whether they are an Elite, High, Medium, or Low performer. The four metrics used are:
  • Deployment frequency (DF)
  • Lead time for changes (LT)
  • Mean time to recovery (MTTR)
  • Change failure rate (CFR)
DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) finds that Elite teams are twice as likely to meet or exceed their organizational performance goals. Deployment Frequency and Lead Time for Changes measure responsiveness and time to market, while Change Failure Rate and Time to Restore Service measure reliability.

Ideal For

Any Agile/DevOps team
