- Compared to Traditional IT Ops teams, DevOps-oriented teams spend 21% less time putting out fires on a weekly basis.
- Compared to Traditional IT Ops teams, DevOps-oriented teams spend 33% more time improving infrastructure against failures.
- Compared to DevOps-oriented teams, traditional IT Ops teams require nearly 60% more time per week to handle support cases.
