DevOps has already become firmly entrenched in the technology industry as it allows businesses to deliver applications at a faster pace and makes maintenance easier for existing deployments. The world of DevOps is rapidly evolving as it continues to be a major component of digital transformation. Here we take a look at seven major trends driving the future of DevOps.
“DevOps teams will increase the speed and quality of their releases. The main reason will be the popularization of Application Release Orchestration (ARO) tools, applications that combine pipeline management with release orchestration. That way, teams can deliver new applications more quickly, since teams can scale release activities across different pipelines and tools.”
“With the rise of hybrid (remote/in-office) product teams, upskilling and online training initiatives will expand. As the pressure continues to rise to sell products and services through e-commerce sites, apps, or SaaS solutions, the lines between product and engineering teams will rapidly blur, giving rise to cross-functional, multidisciplinary teams that must learn and grow together.”
“The shift left phenomena, which enables fixing of bugs/security issues early in the software development life cycle when it is cheapest to do so, is accelerating. By implementing a shared security responsibility model and enabling developers to take more ownership related to infrastructure, security and other critical production issues with code, organizations are shipping code faster and cheaper with less bugs.”
“Migrating from monolithic to microservice and containerized architecture will be a must for all the company for their Digital Transformation journey. It’s not going to be a choice or option anymore. This is where the adoption of Kubernetes will be on rise and when organizations will adopt multi-cloud, Terraform will be the ultimate choice to automate Infrastructure.”
“Serverless architecture is gaining significance amongst the DevOps community, as servers are not required to be provisioned and managed like a traditional hosting service. The technology leaders in this field include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, and they provide enhanced scalability, deployment, productivity, and user experience with nominal cost.”
“Cloud-native security will become more critical as organizations embrace Kubernetes, serverless, and other cloud-based technologies. Teams need new tools and processes to protect assets, which is why we predict a wide adoption of DevSecOps in the coming year.”
“AgileOps combines proven agile and DevOps techniques for I&O teams to improve agility, manage software development and swiftly respond to requirements. The ever-increasing need to quickly respond to user requirements in real-time will drive the further growth of AgileOps in IT operations.”
Organizations using a DevOps model deliver applications quicker and innovate faster. AWS offers elastic, on-demand infrastructure resources and tooling designed to support DevOps practices such as continuous integration and delivery, infrastructure as code, microservices, and monitoring & logging.
