DevOps Assessment

WWT'S DevOps Assessment evaluates an organization's culture, business processes and development architecture to determine their overall maturity for enabling the capabilities implemented by high-performing software development organizations. During our assessment, WWT will gauge your organizational structure, team make-up and engineering practices to help identify improvements which promote innovation, stability and increased collaboration.

Goals & Objectives


DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, methodologies, infrastructure and tools that increase a team's ability to successfully deliver applications and services. Teams implementing DevOps leverage these capabilities to deliver greater business value for their organization by enabling a faster time to market and a shorter time to revenue.   
The key goals of DevOps span the entire delivery pipeline: 
  • increased deployment frequency;
  • lower failure rate of new releases;
  • shorter lead time for changes; and
  • shorter mean time to recovery.

How it works

WWT's DevOps Assessment helps measure the maturity of specific capabilities shown to be predictive of high-performing IT organizations.  
These capabilities fall into three main categories: 
  • Culture: High-performing teams have a culture that values high trust and continuous learning. These measures have all been shown to be predictors of IT and organizational performance. 
  • Process: The software industry has borrowed many ideas from lean manufacturing, which helps improve the way we work. Examples include: visualization of work, breaking work into smaller batch sizes and work-in-progress (WIP) limits. 
  • Technical Practices: This includes practices that are important components of the continuous delivery paradigm. Examples include: the use of version control, test automation, deployment automation and shifting left on security. 
Over the course of four weeks, our DevOps consultants will use a maturity matrix as an evaluation tool to help guide team discussions, perform technical observation sessions and create a final assessment report.
