In the world of software development, DORA Metrics have become essential for measuring and improving performance. These metrics, developed by the DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) team, consist of four key indicators:

  1. Deployment Frequency: Measures how often releases are made to production.
  2. Lead Time for Changes: Tracks the time it takes for a commit to go live.
  3. Change Failure Rate: Calculates the percentage of changes that cause failures.
  4. Mean Time to Recovery (MTTR): Measures how quickly services are restored after a failure.
