DevOps and Agile software development tool vendor CircleCI has released a new report that details the metrics that organizations should use to measure their deployment speed. “Most teams have no idea what speed actually means,” said Jim Rose, CEO of CircleCI. “They are deploying and they are doing it at a rate that feels good to them, but they don’t necessarily know where that stacks up compared to the rest of the market.”

According to CircleCI, the three metrics that matter are mainline branch stability, deploy time and deploy frequency. Its research found that organizations in the 80th percentile keep their mainline code deployable 90 percent of the time. The median deploy time was 7.6 minutes, while those in the 95th percentile could deploy in 2.7 minutes. And when it comes to deployment frequency, 75 percent of organizations deploy less than 13 times per week, while those in the 95th percentile deployed 32 times per week.
