Global DevOps software market is growing at the speed of light due to the products’ high potential and ability to deal with substantial problems faced by the software development industry. The major point addressed by DevOps is the time spent on software development as well as the quality of the final product.
The inefficiency of software and apps, coupled with missed deadlines and improper quality assurance leads to unfortunate downtime, higher costs, and rising client dissatisfaction. DevOps puts the key specialists involved in software development on one team, making the process a bit more complex but a lot more effective.
The Growing Popularity of DevOps
Development, operations, and QA experts are part of one DevOps team to provide top-notch results. Each one of the specialists receives clear instructions, understands business goals, and knows how to work in an unusual team called Development and Operations.
Tools for DevOps are getting more and more popular since they are facilitating the development process within a combined team and also reduce the number of errors. Such tools help improve the stability and security of the DevOps process. Assistants like Platform-as-a-service and containerization induce market growth. The virtualization of such services is becoming a major trend, simplifying DevOps and contributing to the DevOps market rise.
The world is demonstrating a growing requirement for high operational flexibility, better client satisfaction, and penetration of the IoT (Internet of Things). According to experts at the software development company, Tricension, this rising demand is another reason why global DevOps marketing is growing faster than expected.
DevOps is a special approach to enterprise software development, which can’t function without effective collaboration, automation, and communication between software developers and IT operation teams. It appeared from a mix of two popular methods: Agile System Administration and Agile Operations. DevOps combines tools that provide help to develop, manage, and deliver software during its development cycle. These tools facilitate the development process tremendously, reducing code errors, increasing its quality, and improving security and maintainability of operation procedures.
Overall, the DevOps market is currently growing thanks to the increase in the cloud adoption, appearance of containerization, PaaS (Platform as a service), and service virtualization as well as growth of IoT.
