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.

DevOps Enterprise Survey Series

The DevOps Enterprise Survey Series is a distinct survey series in the analyst's market research library that explores technologies and methodologies that are important to enterprise IT and development. The DevOps Enterprise Survey Series combines insights from both developers and IT management to focus on issues that are of concern to large enterprises in all industries. These include DevOps, Public and Private Clouds, ITIL, Data management and other enterprise related matters. Published quarterly, what sets this survey series apart from the other strategic surveys is the inclusion of the views of Operations, Sysadmins, and IT Management in addition to developers to present a well-rounded look at the issues that matter in enterprise development.

DevOps Fundamentals - The first report in this series covers the essentials of DevOps; provisioning, handoffs, orchestration tools, organizational structure, etc.

DevOps and the Cloud - Cloud dynamics and DevOps; multi-cloud and hybrid cloud dynamics; cloud orchestration; microservices and containers;  security and governance, etc.

DevOps in a Legacy Environment - Integrating a DevOps structure and strategy for legacy systems, ITIL, other ITSMs, and similar

DevOps and Emerging Technologies - How DevOps is being impacted by and incorporating new technologies like AI, ML, AR, block chain, HPC etc.

Why This Report Matters to: Those Implementing DevOps Within Their Own Organizations  

Putting DevOps into practice within an organization requires a keen understanding of how developers and IT managers are already using DevOps, including how their new DevOps-driven IT assets interact with legacy applications, what frustrates technical team members about working with DevOps initiatives and legacy environments,  and how DevOps adoption influences various IT service management (ITSM) strategies. 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.
