To gather insights on the state of DevOps, we spoke with 22 executives at 19 companies implementing DevOps for themselves and helping clients to implement a DevOps methodology. We asked, “How has DevOps changed since you began using the methodology?” Here’s what they told us:
- As I talk to customers and prospects there’s greater awareness of DevOps and what it can do. It’s being taken more seriously. There is sufficient proof of organizations doing well with DevOps. This is a business process change.
- A survey we just conducted reflected the insurgency within companies to the way things are done. One year ago, it was, “what is DevOps?” Today there’s a common understanding with a desire to know how to scale.
- CD has become mainstream. Microservices are more commonplace and are a good way to be successful with DevOps. Being in the cloud gives you more flexibility. Containers are becoming more mainstream. Function as a service is a helpful way to solve scaling issues.
- People are beginning to understand the benefits of DevOps. Best practices have been solidified. Allows you to get code from developers to customers in a fast and secure way.
