Your deployment process is hindering innovation: Spend 94% less time on code deployments

To calculate these financial models, Forrester took a multistep approach to evaluating Vercel’s impact. This included interviews with real Vercel customers to gather data on benefits, costs, and risks. From this, they created a composite organization based on the interviewed companies that deployed Vercel’s Frontend Cloud.

Before adopting Vercel, the development teams at composite organizations spent a significant portion of their time:

  • Deploying code to production—with lengthy timelines.
  • Fixing failed releases.

Developers definitely seem happy with the build times alone. They’re just delighted with how quickly they can get their code deployed out.
