The global market size of this industry is growing steadily and is expected to be almost three times larger by 2025. DevOps is a culture that is becoming increasingly essential in business activity and on its path to competitiveness.
DevOps has become a culture of collaborative work in software development within corporations that promotes the competitiveness of the productive sector and whose penetration marks positive numbers on all five continents.
According to the Global Market Research DevOps Platform 2021, prepared by the consulting firm 360 Research Reports, the global market for this industry reached a size of $2.59 billion in 2020, the first year of the pandemic, and is expected to grow to $7.12 billion in 2025. This means that it will register an annual increase at a compound rate of 15.5 percent throughout the five years.
The report highlights that, in the next 5 years, “the DevOps market is looking very positive and forecasting double-digit growth and a higher adoption rate as larger companies begin to understand the benefits it can provide in terms of cost reduction and agility.”
DevOps, a trend beyond the technological field
In addition to the numerical expansion, this report states that DevOps is a trend that goes beyond the technological field and defines it as “a positive organizational change” that is generated in the processes, a cultural transformation, and a scheme that is strengthened in security and compliance aspects of said platform.
This report, which covers a global review of the industry, like others prepared recently, agrees in pointing out that DevOps has become a culture of cloud-based solutions that is becoming stronger and is beginning to encompass all types of companies.
While statistics confirm its expansion and contribution to business competitiveness, this model has also evolved and tools have been generated around it that make it more effective, such as BizDevOps and/or DevOps 2.0. These references encompass the use of customer-focused metrics that help optimize processes.
In other words, the objective of its use is to know in detail the characteristics and reactions of users in order to be able to assess the commercial impact that occurs and in this way guide the focus of the work of the IT development and operations teams.
Benefits of DevOps Culture
The use of this culture, in addition to aligning work teams, offers a series of benefits such as:
- The generation of a common language in the processes allows all those involved to know what is happening in any situation and in this way they can proceed more coordinatedly, with agility and greater response capacity.
- DevOps culture is about shared understanding, improved communication, and collaboration between development, IT operations, and business teams.
A second benefit, as proposed, has to do with the change in the mentality of engineers and developers by reinforcing attributes such as strength and reliability. In this dynamic called resilience, these professionals would have greater skills to successfully face adversity and carry out any project regardless of the difficulties it may present.
As a consequence of the first two benefits, the third has to do with improving the response capacity of work teams and therefore generating better corporate and commercial responses.
In essence, DevOps is a culture that is becoming increasingly essential in business activity and on its path to competitiveness in national and international markets.
