September 28, 2021

DevOps Institute announced the launch of its fourth annual and newly renamed, "Upskilling IT 2022" community survey.

Take the Upskilling IT 2022 Survey

The survey will collect data from thousands of IT professionals across the globe to understand which skills are essential for the future of IT. Findings from the survey will be revealed in early 2022.

"The Upskilling 2021 report revealed that DevOps Humans remained in high demand despite the challenges we faced in 2020," said Jayne Groll, CEO of DevOps Institute. "We also found that the pressure is on for old IT operating models to change in order to enable DevOps transformations. As more organizations prepare to modernize, the industry needs to better understand the future skills for IT. We are excited to see which skills are shaping the future of tech and which gaps need to be filled."

The 2022 survey goes beyond DevOps with an enhanced focus on human and cognitive skills. Survey respondents will be asked to answer 40 questions covering a variety of themes, including IT skills challenges and gaps, future skill set requirements, IT hiring trends, upskilling initiatives, operating models and automation tools. The Upskilling IT 2022 report, based on survey findings, will help leaders determine which future skills they should hire, retrain, and upskill for in the future. It will also identify the biggest IT skills gaps and within which roles, as well as how organizations are upskilling.

"After collecting three consecutive years of data from thousands of respondents we have a good understanding of the most important DevOps skill sets and hiring trends," said Eveline Oehrlich, chief research director at DevOps Institute. "However, in order to keep up with emerging transformation models, it is imperative for IT organizations to ensure that they upskill or reskill their teams for future skills. DevOps Institute aims to help facilitate that preparation by focusing on IT skills for 2022 and beyond. This year we are extending our reach beyond DevOps to ensure the broader IT organization is represented."

The Upskilling IT 2022 survey is active through January 31, 2022, and the fourth annual report will be published in early 2022.
