This IDC study provides DevOps team leaders, development and IT operations executives, and business executives with a road map on how to optimize the business impact of DevOps projects on corporate or business unit strategies. It outlines a specific set of leadership guidelines and processes that executives can use to drive direct strategy impact.

"35% of IT projects fail because business executives change priorities or don't have stakeholder ownership in IT projects," states Stephen Elliot, IDC vice president, Cloud and IT Infrastructure in the CIO Agenda program.
