What is Commit to Deploy Time?

Commit to deploy time is the amount of time it takes a developer to deploy a commit. This is a metric that serves to track efficiency for teams to see how quickly they’re deploying code, starting with an initial commit. You should never use numbers to judge a developer’s work quality, this metric is purely for prediction purposes during sprints. You can also average a team’s commit to deploy time in order to get an accurate estimate of story points.
