What are Enterprise Scale Deployments?

Enterprise scale deployments are defined by velocity, stability, multi-target capabilities, and extensible orchestration.

“Companies in the top quartile of the Developer Velocity Index outperform others in the market by four to five times.”

– McKinsey, 2020

The key elements of enterprise scale deployments

Elite Velocity

  • Deploy on-demand (multiple times per day)
  • Less than one hour lead time for changes.

Elite Stability

  • A 0-15% change failure rate
  • Restore service in less than one hour

Multi-target Capabilities

  • Deploy safely and reliably to different targets – clouds, geographies, or environments

Elite Orchestration

  • Reliably manage 100s of apps or microservices, with:1000s of developers
  • 1000s of Kubernetes clusters
  • And more

Benefits of enterprise scale deployments

It is simple, research shows that speed-to-market provides:

  • Faster innovation
  • Lower development costs
  • Larger market share
  • Greater forecasting accuracy

Why enterprise scale deployments matter?

It has been said that all companies are software companies. In today’s world it can be the difference between success and failure. For a company to win in this software-driven world, speed-to-market is critical.

Companies who have created high developer velocity have substantially outpaced those who have not, including:

  • 4x – 5x faster revenue growth (2014–18)
  • 60% higher total shareholder returns
  • 20% higher operating margins
  • 55% higher innovation score
  • Higher customer satisfaction, brand perception, and talent management

– McKinsey, 2020

Customer satisfaction is critical to success in the software-driven world.

32% of all customers would stop doing business with a brand they loved after one bad experience – in Latin America, it’s 49% – per PWC.

Per McKinsey & Co operational and business agility improve:

  • Financial results and return to shareholders
  • Customer satisfaction and data/insights
  • Time-to-market and competitive response
  • Employee engagement and operational performance

Business agility improves financial performance by 20% to 30%.
