DevOps has come a long way, and we see a tremendous increase in adoption in the recent years. To outrank your competition and be ahead in the growth curve, it has become an essential element for software-powered organizations. DevOps has taken a center stage in the software development field with no signs of leaving.
Below is an infographic of DevOps and some of the trends we see happening this year in DevOps:
7 DevOps Trends
- DevOps will be the mainstream and garner a lot of attention; hence, 2017 is going to be the “Year of DevOps.”
- Along with DevOps, the three C’s—Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Continuous Delivery—are going to gain a huge momentum.
- A number of new DevOps automation tools will be released that change the way we do software development.
- “Containerization” also will be in the limelight.
- Many software firms will move to a microservices architecture.
- Automation and continuous testing will become more popular—and more important.
