Thought leaders in the DevOps community predicted 2020 as the year of DevOps and made predictions about the trends that DevOps would foresee as the year rolled. Today, we are towards the end of 2020 with more expectations from DevOps in the coming year.
But before the DevOps community shares yet another trend for the coming year, let us first navigate the DevOps top trends in 2020.
Growth of cloud-native DevOps: Owing to faster deployments, scalability, and improved visibility across applications, cloud computing was a hit among DevOps-minded teams all through the year. The teams leveraged the automation and scalable cloud computing features, offered more innovative solutions, and successfully achieved agility, resilience, and increased business value.
Serverless Architecture: Since Serverless architecture in DevOps offers flexibility and bridges the gap between Dev and Ops, its implementation created a lot of buzz around DevOps this year. With Serverless, developers could focus more on the application rather than the architecture.
Increase in container services: This year, Kubernetes, an open containerization system that has evolved rapidly to become one of the best in business, replaced the old DevOps functions. It has further simplified the build, test, and deployment pipelines of DevOps by enabling better collaboration between development and operations.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Hype: Both played a critical role in IT operations and DevOps this year. AIOps gave DevOps teams the ability to analyze more data faster, allowing them to improve critical processes, tasks, and decision making. As expected in 2020, more DevOps teams adopted these tools, used ML to analyze the data, and gained knowledge for automation or decision making.
Automation: DevOps has gained more momentum in 2020 as the organizations are shifting their focus on automation, and DevOps help them attain their automation goals. Since it became more commonplace, developers spent more time developing and deploying apps faster and with greater efficiency.
Although an excellent year for DevOps, a lot of work remains in 2020 to aid in the future of DevOps adoption. The need is to register DevOps initiatives as change programs that require time, resources, and priority commitment from all business leaders.
Before we wrap, here is a brief on ‘What to expect in 2021.’
Cloud-native DevOps expected to grow in the future, with 80% of enterprise IT moving to the cloud in the next five years.
Serverless will grow to become a significant driving force behind improved user experience in DevOps in 2021.
Involvement of DevSecOps in the early stage of development and not towards the end.
More on data analysis generated by CI-CD platform for analyzing the trends and developing matrices using them.
Tool Sprawl will continue to be a problem, but DevOps management platforms will emerge, like Software Delivery Management (SDM), will come into the picture to solve these issues.
