Tanzu Talk: Four Important DevOps Metrics

December 2, 2020

In this episode, I discuss four software and operations metrics to start with when you’re doing your digital transformation, app modernization stuff: deployment frequency, lead time for changes, time to restore service, and change failure rate.
