Ubuntu Pro, Canonical’s comprehensive subscription for secure open source and compliance, is now generally available.
Rapidly evolving business models, digitization trends, and the need for reduced operational costs may push DevOps market size to surpass USD 30 billion by 2028, claims a report by Global Market Insights.
An evolving concept of practices and tools, DevOps is gaining momentum across a myriad of industries as it helps automize processes involving software delivery and infrastructure modifications. It offers faster and improved application development, enabling businesses to speed up the launch of upgraded software features and products. As opposed to the conventional agile practices in project management, DevOps is boosting technical project management and IT projects.
Why Are DevOps Components So Significant?
■ DevOps provides continuous communication, visibility, collaboration, integration, and transparency between app development team (Dev) and dedicated IT operations team (Ops).
■ Allows faster development since the primary goal is to develop and shape code quickly and efficiently without wasting time.
■ Minimizes errors with complete transparency and automation.
■ Enables collaborative partners to view the full scope of project.
■ Ensures superior quality solutions with higher flexibility.
■ Ultimately, DevOps permits a wide range of industries including BFSI, IT & Telecom, healthcare, retail, government, manufacturing, and media & entertainment to better serve customers.
Governments to Accelerate the Acceptance of DevOps
Government agencies across the globe are struggling to compete with the agility, mobility and utility offered by private-sector apps and services. To come in par with this trend, government agencies and service providers are adopting DevOps to deliver expected user satisfaction.
Since technology is largely driving consumer needs for information and support in near real-time, the public is looking for the state and local governments to catch up. Speed, convenience, choice, and personalization are vividly placed demands that can be overcome by DevOps.
Digital transformation goals of government entities have been hindered by a lack of cultural change and technical debt. DevOps can effectively help reduce this debt for several government departments that even today rely on IT systems as old as from 1970 that should become obsolete.
The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) instituted the DevOps Working Group for exploration of different DevOps aspects. It aimed to explore the toolchains, practices, and culture for enhancing service delivery capabilities of the U.S government. The existing government DevOps culture is in a nascent phase, still amid getting rid of the old software development and infrastructure management processes. As government agencies accelerate the deployment of these components, DevOps market share is liable to witness an upsurge.
Need for Hybrid Multi-Cloud Experience to Push DevOps Industry Trends
According to latest survey by Red Hat Software, nearly 18% of the IT companies are in the process of creating a cloud strategy, while 30% of the companies with cloud strategy have adopted a hybrid cloud model.
Private and public sectors are pursuing investments to solidify their DevOps culture by focusing on a hybrid multi-cloud experience which offers automation, frictionless consumption, self-service, infrastructure freedom, and programmable APIs.
It facilitates deployment of hybrid cloud services, bridging traditional and new applications. With a bifocal approach, hybrid deployment of DevOps connects data centers with public clouds more efficiently.
Overall, hybrid cloud DevOps help organizations utilize all existing technologies, new innovations as well as traditional legacy applications for advancing business performance and success. With increasing developments in hybrid cloud, DevOps industry is likely to register considerable growth by 2028.
