If you ask 10 people to define DevOps, you\u2019ll probably get 10 different answers. Some answers will focus on culture and collaboration; others may focus on tooling. (If you\u2019re interested in our definition of DevOps, we wrote a post called What is DevOps?)\nDevOps is hard to pin down, but most people agree that it\u2019s about much more than tooling. It\u2019s about people, processes and tools \u2014 and probably in that order. It\u2019s about aligning team values and workflows to achieve business objectives. By adopting DevOps practices, you can move faster without sacrificing quality, and set yourself up for future innovation and growth.\nHow mature is DevOps at your organization? We created a 17-question DevOps assessment to help you find out. You\u2019ll see how your peers have answered the questions, and also get advice tailored to your organization\u2019s DevOps maturity.\nYou\u2019ll also get a better understanding of the practical benefits of DevOps, including:\n\n\nImprovements in instrumentation and monitoring, so you can find problems before customers encounter them, and improve recovery time.\n\n\nDeployment of software in smaller, more frequent batches, to reduce risk of failure and get new features out to market \u2014 or your employees \u2014 faster.\n\n\nManaging infrastructure as code, so changes can be rolled out quickly and accurately, with less manual work.\n\n\nTake the assessment now. If you have any questions after completing the assessment, we\u2019re here to help.
