Benchmarks: Digital Transformation in Global 2,000 Enterprises

Jan 23, 2020 by DROdio

I just sat down with Armory CTO Isaac Mosquera to discuss the best-practices Armory is seeing across multiple Global 2,000 enterprise customers (with many of them Fortune 100) around digital transformation, including;

  • Best vs. Worst: Number of applications successfully migrated into the cloud from data centers in the first 9 and 12 months
  • Differences between the leaders vs. laggards: How the culture of the executive suite is driving the divide between the best and worst-performers

Transcript+Audio: Isaac’s Take on the Data:

Here is the Benchmark Data:

  • Top performers onboard an average of 34 applications onto Armory Spinnaker in the first 9 months.
  • The lowest performers average just 1.

  • With some top quartile enterprises onboarding 44 applications in just 8 months

  • The highest performer almost doubled the Top Performer average, with 82 applications onboarded in one year.

  • Top performers onboard an average of 56 users in the first five months. Note the spike in month three: Top performers typically start with a lighthouse application and team, prove the value internally, and then scale that success across the organization

Main Take-Aways

In our experience, the main blocker in the Global 2,000 to faster innovation and digital transformation is coming from the culture in the executive suite.

Jez Humble and David Farley, who literally wrote the book on “Continuous Delivery” 10 years ago, gave a keynote at the recent DeliveryConf. The room was packed with the who’s who of DevOps/Delivery.  The presentation’s core was largely centered on culture:

“Without aligned cultural values, you won’t be able to accomplish CD or engineering performance.”

This slide echos what Armory typically sees as well:

What to do from here:
