DevOps combines collaboration and transparency to speed development, implementation, and innovation throughout the organization. But for DevOps to drive business success, teams must collect and share critical data in real time across the entire organization—from the performance impact of the latest code release to the percentage of downtime during the latest traffic spike. Of course, that’s just the beginning: For DevOps efforts to truly pay off, you need to show key stakeholders that your work has a positive impact on your business. Here are six ways New Relic can help you move faster and ensure your DevOps initatives are working.

Running a digital business is a team sport, with involvement across development, operations, and business teams. However, as the rate of change increases in DevOps environments, these diverse teams often get out of sync because they rely on different data sources and tools. New Relic charts, dashboards, and alerts can create a single, powerful, and easy-to-understand source of truth for stakeholders across the company. That can mean sharing dev and ops perspectives using New Relic Insights dashboards or tracking environment health status via Service Maps in New Relic APM, which can speed top-level troubleshooting by providing a single pane of glass that highlights throughput, error rate, and latency for every connected service. New Relic Infrastructure meanwhile, can surface server issues that are affecting performance, and you can use New Relic Synthetics scripts to monitor SLA compliance by checking if the app is meeting at agreed-upon uptime goals.
