DORA Leaders Discuss Evolution of DevOps in Recently Launched Sumo Logic ‘Masters of Data’ Podcast Series

Sumo Logic to Feature DevOps Experts Nicole Forsgren and Jez Humble on Next Episode to Talk About the Foundations of the DevOps Movement and New Book “Accelerate”

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 7, 2018 – Sumo Logic, the leading cloud-native, machine data analytics platform that delivers continuous intelligence, today announced it will feature DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) co-founders Dr. Nicole Forsgren and Jez Humble on its June 12 Masters of Data podcast, a new podcast series that explores the frontlines of the data revolution. In this “DevOps by the Data” episode, Masters of Data podcast host Ben Newton will discuss the foundations of the DevOps movement and their new book “Accelerate.”

The DevOps movement is one of the most consequential cultural and technological ideas in IT and software engineering in recent decades. At its core, DevOps decreases the time to market for innovative products by reducing friction between developers — who build applications — and operations — who manage the applications — while maintaining quality throughout. This process goes beyond technical and infrastructural changes; it requires a shift in leadership and culture that emphasizes communication, intellectual stimulation, recognition and support.

Through extensive research, surveys and in-depth analysis, Dr. Forsgren and Humble, along with DORA co-founder Gene Kim, have built a strong, data-backed foundation for DevOps. The forthcoming “DevOps by the Data” episode will discuss their new book, “Accelerate,” which presents both the findings and the science behind four years of groundbreaking research that focused on finding ways to measure software delivery performance.
