In 2017, the DevOps market generated over $2.9 billion in revenue, and this is expected to exceed $6.6 billion by 2022. Today, DevOps has become a key focus and it has effectively shaped the software realm. There are some experts who project that DevOps is going to quickly become mainstream in the coming year.
Not only are enterprises showing interest in DevOps, but they are starting to adopt these practices and technologies. In fact, between the years of 2017 and 2018, there was a seven percent boost in DevOps adoption.
The reasons for the surge in adoption are vast. It includes things like faster response toward an amendment, superior speed, and more agile security arrangement, establishes the ideal channel for communication and collaboration, quick identification of vulnerabilities or bugs in the code, and the ability for teams to put their attention to other critical processes, instead of focusing on the security features.
As the new year gets closer, there are many companies looking forward to seeing what is coming for the DevOps industry. From being able to check out how big data analysis works to providing new and innovative technological advancements, the changing face of DevOps is impacting businesses in many ways.
An Increased Focus on Automation
If your company has already implemented DevOps, then you have likely already seen higher efficiency and faster deployment rates. With DevOps today, there’s no question that DevOps automation is a popular topic of discussion. The future of this technology is zero-touch automation. It’s now necessary for users and those adopting this technology to understand the six C’s of the DevOps cycle and how they can apply automation between the phases. This is going to be a major objective in 2020.
The Evolution of Kubernetes
Kubernetes has turned out to be a top container technology. Around the globe, CIOs and technologists prefer the use of Kubernetes because of what it offers and by 2020, it’s expected to grow even more.
In 2019, there was a growth in the adoption of Kubernetes, as companies of all sizes have embraced containers for running various cloud-native apps. During 2020, it’s expected that there will be even more development of orchestration software replacing several of the older DevOps functions.
Increased Embedded Security
With the growing number of security breaches and the bad impact they have on a company’s reputation, cyber-security is considered imperative for business today. During 2020, DevOps improvements and upgrades are going to be focused on security enhancements.
While there has been quite a bit of buzz around DevSecOps in the past few months, in 2020, this is even going to grow more. DevSecOps is focused on injecting security first during the life cycle of app development. The thought is that this is going to help reduce vulnerabilities and improve a business’s reputation.
This shift to the use of DevSecOps is also set to bring in more collaboration in the software development process. It will help to ensure that the development processes in place will stay effective, efficient, and flawless.
Data Science and AI Providing Improved Automation Options
The primary objective (as mentioned above) for DebOps in 2020 is zero-touch automation. The growing use of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence has really become a game-changer. There are several apps that are being fueled with AI, which is pushing modern DevOps teams to look for automation options to find new prospects within the workflow streams being used.
Increased Hype in the Use of Serverless Architecture
It’s possible to reach DevOps to the zenith level with the use of serverless architecture. This doesn’t mean it is completely free of servers; however, there is a cloud service that can cover the complete architecture. This type of extraordinary architecture lets software developers concentrate their attention and focus to the application they are working on. Two of the critical aspects of serverless architecture are FaaS and BaaS. When serverless architecture is used, it’s possible to save time, reduce costs, and secure a resilient and efficient workflow.
If you aren’t aware of the trends and changes coming, you may find your DevOps falling behind in 2020. The information here should help you get a head start and know what to expect with this technology in the coming year.
