For more than a decade, DORA has been researching the capabilities of technology-driven teams and the ways these teams improve key outcomes like:

  • Software delivery performance: How quickly and reliably teams can deliver software changes.

  • Organizational performance: How effectively organizations achieve their business goals.

  • Team well-being: How work practices and culture impact the well-being of software development teams.

DORA's annual survey is now open and we encourage you and your team to participate now.

A moment of reflection

The 15 minutes you spend taking the survey can serve as a moment of reflection. Careful consideration of the survey's questions often helps shine a light on areas that you and your team can improve. Some teams have found value in dedicating time for everyone to take the survey and then spend 20-30 minutes discussing the experience. Here are some questions that you might use with your team to facilitate a discussion.

  • Which questions were difficult to answer and why?

  • Which areas do you feel we could improve as a team?

  • Where do you feel we are excelling as a team?

  • What one thing would you like us to try as a team?

A look to the future

DORA has always tried to understand and evaluate the impact of emerging trends. This year is no different. The industry continues to see a rapid rate of change and there are some new technologies, topologies, and approaches that teams are prioritizing. This year we're trying to learn from you about your efforts in three key areas:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) - Last year we asked the importance of AI in your daily work. This year we are expanding our inquiry in this area to better understand how AI is changing your work and the impact of those changes. How is AI impacting organizational performance?
  • Platform Engineering - We want to better understand how your organization is approaching platform engineering. Platform engineering may include both technologies and teams. How does platform engineering impact software delivery performance?
  • Developer Experience - What is your overall experience like as you work to deliver for your customers? How does your experience impact the value you're able to deliver?

DORA helps teams like yours
