Nearly 47% of companies have already adopted DevOps and 33% plan to adopt in the next two years. The highest level of acceptance for DevOps in IT services and Retail followed by Healthcare and Finance- is an old story to tell that is already ragged !!!
In the coming projects, organizations will rely on more modern software development and delivery as part of their business model to face the highly dynamic and competitive markets. So as we dive deeper into the future of DevOps, the most popular trends from development and operations shift to testing, security, and metrics. Let’s know how DevOps is going to innovate the entire software business …
Create change together with Microservices and DevOps
Container Technologies has created a buzz in the market that will certainly continue until the next decade. Microservices is a broad concept that applies to churning applications, solutions or products on a more modular and granular level. Developers can deploy these microservices independently, which in turn is helpful in isolating bugs, opening gates for faster routes to the market. DevOps clubbing with microservices allows developers to work on the loosely coupled applications and have the freedom to choose the technology stack according to the most appropriate requirements.
Continuous testing is a top priority
Continuous Delivery is a noble goal that can provide you with an express ticket for Digital Failure if best practices are not followed. The only way to ensure that the code meets the standards is to test it continuously. As the developers generate microservices, more modules need to be vigorously tested. For this, the developers need the ability to test the code as it is produced in what is known as SHIFT LINKS CONTINUOUS TESTING. By working on such tests using automation and virtualization, agile practices can be developed beyond development and testing; and helps eliminate long backend cycles. This creates a culture of continuous improvement using measures of effectiveness and efficiency to ensure the end product is improved.
Combine DevOps with security – DevSecOps
With the increase in project complexity, one can potentially have different kinds of security issues ranging from bad codes to misconfigured servers and everything in between. These issues could only be resolved with due regard to the security implications, principles and standards for building the applications. A new movement called DevSecOps has been implemented to address the challenges and bring operational and technological innovation to cybersecurity. Developing microservices and SDKs allowed developers to easily build security for products and solutions for a better user experience. The requirements for testing security-related codes are very dynamic and quirky, so it’s important to unify development, security, and operations that make it DevSecOps.
Concentrate more on statistics
DevOps Metrics is a holistic way to not only see the success of the DevOps program, but also discover how it can be changed, expanded and improved. The continued focus of DevOps statistics is on the areas of implementation, operations and support that help accelerate development processes, implementation, frequency of deployments and their failures, measure customer responses. DevOps metrics typically fall into three categories of people, processes and technology to a greater extent, but implementation frequency, change turnaround time, change error time, average recovery time should be considered to get the 360 degrees of DevOps metrics.
Successful measurement is increasingly important to DevOps, as organizations continue to push the boundaries to implement rigorous test automation, more advanced pre-production security controls and management disciplines in DevOps Lifecycle. Real progress will be made with the adoption of these principles.
