According to EMA, there's a strong correlation between the quality of the interactions between Dev and Ops and revenue growth. In fact, their DevOps research has shown that 87 percent of companies that reported the daily interactions between Dev and Ops as being "excellent" or "above average" saw revenue growth of 10 percent or more in the past 12 months. In contrast, 66 percent of the companies that characterized interaction quality as "average or below" saw increases of less than 10 percent, or even decreases in revenue. Enterprise IT managers who want to improve cross-functional problem solving capabilities, streamline processes, and improve IT-business alignment will not want to miss this event.
