When we launched the Mobile DevOps Assessment in 2022, our goal was to provide the Mobile DevOps industry with results that would help them improve. We understood the market need for Mobile DevOps teams to know where they stood against their peers and have benchmarks that could be introduced as KPI’s.
The assessment survey was split into four stages representing the app delivery process — Creation, Testing, Deployment, and Monitoring — with the final fifth stage, Collaboration, touching on them all.
Over 1,600 teams around the world have now taken the Mobile DevOps Assessment. With representatives from teams big and small, and from across the entire range of app categories, these results are our first glimpse into how mobile teams report their own performance.
We’re going to highlight some of the top-level results and insights that came from the assessment in this blog post, but download the report to get the full picture (and we drill down into specifics like the most popular cross platform framework and what percentage of the industry use a device farm).
The first stage of the Mobile DevOps Assessment survey was Creation. We asked developers how long it took for a scoped feature to be deployed to the app stores?
The result? High performers take 14 days or fewer whereas average and the majority of respondents take anywhere from 31-90 days to deploy.
We also asked how they managed their backwards compatibility and whether they utilize code generation tools like Sourcery, Protobuf, or GraphQL. Download the report to see the full results.
The second stage of the Mobile DevOps Assessment survey was Testing and we asked, “approximately what percentage of your releases are hotfixes?”.
The result? High performers have less than 10%, whereas average performers have 24.3% which means a quarter of their release contents are hotfixes.
Download the full report now to find out what percentage of teams test as many devices as possible with a device farm, what the most common testing framework is and what percentage of teams use no framework at all.
These results are just the tip of the iceberg — the report is jam-packed full of useful insights, along with the other 3 stages of the app delivery process: Deployment, Monitoring and Collaboration. Download the full report now.
The Mobile DevOps Assessment only takes a couple of minutes to complete, if you’re in the Mobile DevOps industry and haven’t already taken it, we suggest you do.
