What is this metric?
This metric counts the number of deployments per day/week/month. Each service deployment is counted separately.
Why is it important?
A high number of deployments indicates short cycle times. Teams deploying frequently show that they have confidence in pushing value and fixing issues quickly. High-performing teams invest in foundations that allow them to deploy multiple times a day and quickly recover from failures.
How is it calculated?
LinearB calculates deployment frequency by counting the unique release tags from your Git provider and dividing them by the number of days that have occurred in the iteration.
How to improve deployment frequency?
If you wish to improve your deployment frequency and safely deploy multiple times a day, you should invest in:
- Improving your automated test coverage
- Integrating with CI/CD tools
- Automating the release validation phase and release process
- Reducing the error recovery time on production
What is the industry standard?
The industry standard line is based on the metrics values in all LinearB community teams. You can read all industry benchmarks here: Metrics Community Benchmarks
