The two firms have collaborated before and both companies believe that the combination will give developers access to data-driven insights using DevOps in the cloud.
“We are excited to join a team committed to delivering research-backed DevOps practices, and we look forward to continuing our work to understand key capabilities, measure value-driven outcomes, and optimize processes to help teams deliver their software as they move to the cloud,” Nicole Forsgren, founder, CEO and Chief Scientist of DORA said.
Headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, DORA is well known for its research in the field of DevOps and its reports on business technology transformation. DORA has also helped large enterprises such as Capital One and Verizon assess their own IT investments.
“DORA’s leadership in the DevOps space is a natural fit for Google Cloud, as both organizations are known for our mutual commitment to the developer and operations ecosystems. DORA’s data-driven approach has helped teams leverage automation, process, and cultural change to improve the quality of their software and the quality of their work-life. Google Cloud is beloved for its contributions to the open source community, and is known for its research-driven approach to understanding how developers and operators work, and what makes them successful,” the company said in a blog post.
“Our focus has always been on delivering the best possible developer and operator experiences and investing in tools and workflows to make that a reality, and then making them broadly accessible to teams around the world,” Melody Meckfessel, Vice President of Engineering for Google Cloud said in a statement. “We are excited for DORA to join the Google Cloud family to help strengthen our data-driven approach to understanding what makes developers and operators productive and happy.”
The financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.
