Google Cloud Buys Digital Transformation, DevOps Research Firm DORA

Google is bringing digital transformation and DevOps research firm DORA under its roof, which the two companies say will help Google better understand what makes developers productive.

Google has scooped up DevOps Research and Assessment LLC (DORA), a digital transformation research firm that the cloud giant has collaborated with previously.

DORA announced the acquisition in a blog post on Thursday, saying 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 in the blog post on the announcement.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

DORA, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, is known for its research into the DevOps space and reports on business technology transformation. The company said that it’s a "natural fit" with Google because of the tech giant's emphasis on the developer and open source community.

The two companies have collaborated in the past on DevOps research. DORA has also helped large enterprises such as Capital One and Verizon assess their own IT investments.

“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.”
