Having “good DevOps” isn’t about having any one tool or practice in place, it takes many elements and people working together.
I’ve developed this scorecard over 7 years with input from customers, employers, and peers; including presenting and discussing it at industry meetups and DevOpsDays conferences. Use it to assess your DevOps and uncover opportunities to fine-tune.
This list is intended as an end-goal for any organization, however most will never achieve all of these due to particular staff, funding, or security constraints or considerations. With the combined effort of your engineering teams, and the support of management and the wider organization, you should be able to achieve most of the following and enjoy the many benefits of sound DevOps.
