This IDC study is designed for IT and business leaders, functional leaders, and their teams that are responsible for the creation and delivery of business capabilities. It presents the results of IDC's 2015 DevOps MaturityScape Benchmark Survey among Western European enterprises and should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: DevOps (IDC #249471, June 2014). Together they provide a comprehensive overview of IDC's DevOps Maturity model.
"With the shift to digital transformation, DevOps practices are rapidly becoming more relevant and indeed necessary for enterprise survival," said Jennifer Thomson, research director, IDC European Services. "DevOps is a multilayered challenge, but the business must be at its heart. It should be the goal and not the starting point — it is a transformation journey — and the path that organizations choose to take will differ for each of them. This maturity benchmark study, together with IDC's DevOps MaturityScape framework, guides IT and business organizations to drive business results through the transformation of application delivery and operations."
