This brand new Enterprise Survey Series explores technologies and methodologies that are important to enterprise IT and development. This report, the second in the quarterly series, focuses on DevOps and the Cloud, and is an important asset for any organization looking to sell DevOps technologies, tools, and services to other companies, as well as for any organization that wants to automate its own processes through DevOps. Along the way, organizations need to get a sense of the current DevOps landscape, the tactics current DevOps users have embraced, and the challenges that these technical professionals face.

This survey is unique from other surveys as it gets to the bottom of the DevOps issues by looking at them from BOTH the developer and IT Manager’s point of view. Using actual survey data from over 250 developers and 250 IT managers, we present in-depth data and analysis to inform your DevOps decisions. All results are presented in aggregate and then broken out by developer or operator answers so you can see the overall result as well as how the views of the two groups differ.

Objectives of the Survey

This survey gives a comprehensive view of the attitudes, adoption patterns,  and intentions of developers and IT managers within the enterprise as they relate to DevOps and the Cloud. The researcher wishes to make this survey series as valuable as possible to our clients; thus, we solicit input from subscribers prior to the publication of each volume. This subscriber input is incorporated into the content of the survey, providing answers and insight into issues of interest to our clients.

Topics include: demographics and organizational reporting structure, cloud dynamics and DevOps, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud dynamics, cloud orchestration, microservices and containers, integrating emerging technologies, security and governance.

About this Report

The Enterprise Survey Series is a new survey series in the stable of market research, and explores technologies and methodologies that are important to enterprise IT and development. This report, the second in the series, focuses on DevOps and the Cloud, and is an important asset for any organization looking to sell DevOps technologies, tools, and cloud services to other companies, as well as for any organization that wants to automate its own processes through DevOps. Along the way, organizations need to get a sense of the current DevOps landscape, the tactics current DevOps users have embraced, and the challenges that these technical professionals face.
 
Why this report matters to DevOps tool vendors:

The practical applications of DevOps have helped push DevOps practices and  philosophies into the limelight. Nevertheless, developers and IT professionals may perceive DevOps as being more appropriate for specific fields, and may also perceive challenges along the way. For this reason, it is important for tool and service providers to understand the frustrations that developers and operations professionals experience in their existing development, as well as the perceived challenges in using DevOps and the Cloud for enterprise efforts, and address them. Ultimately, tool and service providers need to understand the behaviors and perceptions of developers and IT professionals, and particularly the differences between them, in order to gain a clearer understanding of their target market.

Why this report matters to professionals implementing DevOps within their own organizations:

DevOps initiatives are well underway in IT organizations throughout the  world. Putting DevOps into practice within an organization requires a keen understanding of how developers and IT managers are already using DevOps, including which assets they need to provision, where the handoffs occur between the development and operations teams, and how the Cloud functions as a means of facilitating automation. Furthermore, DevOps implementation requires an awareness of how technical staff members across a variety of different industries perceive the interaction of development and operations and its challenges. 

DevOps builds upon numerous technological advances and patterns of  thought. Understanding developers’ and operations managers' perceptions and preferences can help organizations with budding DevOps strategies formulate the smoothest path to adoption. In order to create this path, organizations need to understand the behaviors and preferences that developers and IT professionals alike have at this intersection between development and operations, and how they may differ across the two groups. As with tools providers and other tech companies,  organizations with nascent DevOps strategies also must understand the difficulties  that exist in current development efforts and the perceived challenges of DevOps implementation.

This survey series is completed entirely online. Respondents from the Panel were sent invitations to participate and complete the survey online. Incentives for completing the survey are the ability to influence tool makers, to receive points that can be used to redeem cash cards. 

RESEARCH DESIGN

The survey research method is the basic research design. The questionnaire  for this survey is constructed for developers and IT managers actively involved with developing a variety of applications using a wide variety of technologies. An e-mail invitation was sent out to software developers and IT professionals inviting them to come to the survey site, fill out the survey online, and register for the drawing. Verbatim of any appreciable length was not used in this volume. Answers were compiled in SPSS.

RELATIVE RANKINGS

In order to facilitate better at-a-glance comprehension of complex data sets, the researcher provides relative ranking tables next to summary sheets. These rankings have a numerical weighting for the various categories. For example, in a question where the possible answers are w, x, y, and z, w is multiplied by 3, x by 2, y by -2, and z by -3. The sum of these comprises the relative ranking for the category in question. The results are then sorted, from highest ranking to lowest, to give a closer comparison.

THE SAMPLE – SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS AND IT MANAGERS

This survey consists of 500 in-depth interviews conducted with an even  number of English-speaking developers and also IT managers worldwide who have DevOps initiatives within their organizations. This provides a margin of error of 4.4%.
