Over the course of 10 years, things have changed. The idea of DevOps has matured since it was first mentioned at the Agile Conference in Toronto, but how so? And, what does the future of DevOps look like?
When Shafer scheduled the “Agile Infrastructure” session initially, the lack of an impact caused him to shut it down. However, luckily Patrick Debois saw the potential this idea had on the world of tech, and ventured straight to meet Shafer.
This meeting resulted in the Agile Systems Group, 3 months later, which ignited the fuel for DevOps.
As DevOps matured, more and more organisations began to adopt the process. Mobile technology helped this growth, due to the sheer ‘need for speed’ with these applications and software developments, otherwise competitive advantage is impossible.
Given this, organisations are having to focus on both agility and adaptability – which created DevOps 2.0. Although DevOps was already ensuing this integration, it now presses for it even further.
Gartner stated that by the end of 2017, 2/3 of all organisations were implementing DevOps. They also predicted this would continue to grow in the coming years.
With GDPR and all other security measures that have been implemented recently, the introduction of Security to the DevOps model was imminent. Now DevSecOps has become best practice for most Software Development companies.
So, what now?
Predictions for the future include that AI and automation will impact the DevOps process. With the idea that integration, security, testing and deploying will be dictated by AI, data and machine learning.
Clearly, DevOps is evolving. Are you?
