DORA Metrics

2024 Software Engineering Benchmarks Report

For the first time, engineering teams can benchmark their performance against data-backed industry standards. Inside you’ll find: 
Tactical advice on how to improve your team’s performance 
How elite teams are performing against the four DORA metrics
Data insights broken down by organization, team, size, geography, and industry
Data Sourced From
Benchmarks Based on Org Size and Maturity

Benchmarks Based On Org Size & Maturity

Small teams need to benchmark their performance against an org with 5 engineers, not 5,000. In this year’s report, we outline the benchmarks and insights that apply to engineering teams based on their org size. See benchmarks for companies broken down by the following sizes:
Startups 0-100 employees
Scale-ups 100-1,000 employees
Enterprise 1,000+ employees
Investment Benchmarks

For the First Time: Investment Benchmarks

With investment metrics, leaders can see what percentage of their team’s time and resources are going toward different initiatives. With this visibility, engineering leaders can make strategic decisions around what work should be prioritized moving forward. See investment benchmarks broken down by the following resource allocations:
New value
Feature enhancements
Developer experience

DORA, Efficiency & Planning Benchmarks

The best way to improve any team is to establish a baseline for what “good” means. The 2024 Engineering Benchmarks Report is the most thorough, comprehensive look at what performance metrics make engineering orgs elite, average, or needing improvement. See benchmarks for essential metrics like:
Cycle time, deployment frequency, mean time to restore, and more
Pull request size, code review time, pickup time, and more
Planning accuracy, capacity accuracy, investment distribution, and more
