1. Lack of Speed

One of the biggest reasons why organizations implement DevOps is that they want to improve their speed, particularly the speed with which they can deploy new software into production and get new products to market.

In the HBR study, 86% of those surveyed said that it is important for their company to develop and deploy new software quickly, with 63% saying it was "very important." However, only 10% said that they were very successful at meeting these goals. According to the report, "Close to two-thirds of organizations (61%) want to achieve a release cycle of under three months, but only 27% are currently hitting this target."

In short, DevOps is making companies faster at software development — but not fast enough.
