- 2019 Accelerate State of DevOps Report - DORA has released their annual State of DevOps report, and as it turns out, the age-old adage It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it’s seems to hold water here. For the 2nd year in a row, DORA found that successful migrations in organizations were due to the way teams had implemented their cloud services, not just the fact they were using the cloud. No point having a magic wand if you don’t know how to use it!
