1How Modern App Tools, Practices—Including DevOps—Deliver on KPIs
Organizations that are considered “highly mature” in modern application development are much more likely to see higher profits while successfully achieving their key performance indicators (KPIs), according to a recent survey from CA Technologies. The resulting report, titled “What Business Executives Are Learning about Software Development and How It Is Helping Achieve KPIs,” defines highly mature companies as those that have widely adopted modern app architecture solutions (such as APIs and microservices) and practices (DevOps and agile). Nearly 1,090 global IT and business executives took part in the research, which was conducted by Frost & Sullivan. The following slide show presents survey highlights, with charts provided courtesy of CA Technologies.

4Deployments Distinguish ‘Haves’ From ‘Have Nots’
Nearly all organizations at a high level of modern app development maturity have adopted DevOps, app security, agile practices, containers, microservices and application programming interfaces (APIs). But only 58 percent of companies at a low level of maturity use app security and just 52 percent deploy APIs. At most, only one-half of these businesses use microservices, containers, DevOps and agile practices.
