6 Top DevOps trends to watch out for in 2020

Since its inception, which goes way back to 2008, DevOps has been through major changes. Why not? A successful and fast-moving field such as DevOps is all about constant improvement and changes.

A report by Grand View states that the global DevOps market size is expected to reach USD 12.85 billion by 2025. Another report states that the DevOps Market size exceeded USD 4 billion in 2019. DevOps have been a major area of interest and is expected to reach its peak by the end of 2020.

A successful business is all about following the latest practices and trends. Here in this blog, we talk about the latest trends that one should follow for DevOps in 2020

Automation is the future

Automation is an integral part of DevOps, and teams should be looking for automation options to speed up the development process. Organizations which have already adopted DevOps have seen higher productivity and quicker deployments. The automation options are available at every stage, starting from, planning to build, test, release, deploy, deliver, configure, and monitor. The objective for 2020 would be to minimize human intervention by fully automating the development processes and by using the available data and combining it with systems that are intelligent enough to analyze and generate actionable inputs. 

DevOps Assembly Lines – From CI TO CD

The ultimate objective of DevOps is to enhance the collaboration between the planning and automation of the delivery process. More than doing Continuous Integration (CI), it has always been about Continuous Delivery (CD). Companies are investing in extra effort and time to understand how to automate their entire software development process. In 2020, attention will shift from the Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline to the DevOps assembly line.

Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning – Needs of today

With the growing number of applications powered by AI, the modern-day data science teams have begun to look at the DevOps concept and its functionality. These are expected to be a key option in dealing with automated pipelines, maintaining, and testing multiple models deployed in the production chain. For example, it can help them to identify the changes that need to be made to improve the Continuous Integration pipeline. AI and machine learning can, therefore, help DevOps professionals to be more proactive than responsive.

How about Serverless Architecture? 

Serverless architecture is expected to be the next big thing in the DevOps arena. The concept of serverless architecture is not essentially about excluding servers altogether. Instead, there are cloud platform that handles the entire architecture. These allow the developers to focus on the app. The best example of this is the phenomenal rise of online video streaming websites. Their early adoption of cloud-based native technologies has given them an enormous competitive advantage.

Security…. It’s not a product but a process!

With the sudden increase in security breaches and the negative impact on the reputation of the company, cybersecurity is essential for every business. Recently we have seen a trend of DevSecOps. DevSecOps is all about security first in the app development life cycle process, therefore decreasing vulnerabilities and improving business reputation. DevSecOps will ensure that the processes of software development remain efficient, effective and without flaws.

Kubernetes – The continuous evolution

The most popular container orchestration solution nowadays is Kubernetes. The Kubernetes Container Service provides technical stack-decoupling and allows developers to focus more on their own business scenarios and applications. One of the prospects for container technology is to run containers on serverless infrastructure.

Globally, technologists and CIO’s have preferred Kubernetes because of its offerings. Kubernetes has revolutionized deployment and application sharing during the software development process. We will start seeing container orchestration software replace several old DevOps integrations in 2020.

2020 does seem like a bright year for DevOps and a precursor to its successful future. Its innumerable technical cultural and business benefits make it the right pick for organizations to gain a competitive edge. Since it is evident that DevOps is a trend that is here to stay, it is imperative that one gains a clear understanding of the direction that the market is headed towards.
