Devops is a technical term meaning “development operations.” Devops practitioners help organizations move faster and more efficiently by automating everyday processes that contain risk, so they can focus on innovation. DevOps adoption has been increasing over the past few years, with 58% of enterprises adopting some form of devops technology in 2018. However, there are still many companies that are not fully embracing this shift towards automation. In fact, some organizations have even gone back to using traditional IT setups after implementing devops tools.

The DevOps market is expected to grow by $6.38 billion to $14.8 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 12.1%. This growth will be driven by the adoption of cloud-based technologies and automation tools, which are being adopted by startups as well as large enterprises worldwide.

What trends are leading the way in that growth.

Multi-cloud Environments

In the future, you’ll likely have to use a multi-cloud environment. As more companies start using cloud computing and big data analysis, they’ll need to be able to access their data in multiple locations across different clouds. This means that you’ll need to be able to move seamlessly between them and make changes as needed without having any downtime or loss of productivity.

Multi-cloud environments also give developers access to more features than they could get from just one platform alone; this includes things like better performance or faster response times when dealing with high loads on servers or applications running on them (like live video streaming).

Serverless Computing

Serverless computing is a cloud-based model that consists of providing access to an application without requiring a specific machine or virtual server. Instead, the developer can choose from any number of services and pay only for what they use.

Serverless applications are similar to traditional ones but don’t require you to manage hardware and software infrastructure yourself. You can build your own serverless application using open source tools such as AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions (GCP). Once you have created your code, it will be automatically deployed on any available runtime environment (i.e., AWS Lambda), deployed onto Kubernetes clusters if needed, provisioned by CodeCommit service bus (if there is no other suitable method) along with all necessary dependencies such as databases etc…

Microservices Architecture

Microservices Architecture is a software development technique that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. A microservice is basically a small, self-contained piece of functionality that can be independently developed, tested and deployed.

The idea behind microservices architecture is to break up large monolithic applications into small pieces so developers can build and release new features more quickly without affecting other parts of the system. This allows for greater agility in moving from one stage of development to another, as well as scaling up or down when needed according to changing business needs or market conditions.

Kubernetes and GitOps

In the DevOps world, GitOps is a practice that uses tools like Git and Jenkins to automate the software delivery pipeline. Kubernetes is an orchestrator for containerized applications. The two are closely related: both allow you to easily deploy applications into production using your existing infrastructure without having to set up servers or manage storage yourself.

Kubernetes has been around since 2013 but it’s only recently started gaining steam as a solution for deploying containers in large organizations — and it’s still maturing at this point!

Security Coverage

Security is a key component of DevOps. The goal of DevOps is to improve the quality and speed of software development, deployment, and delivery. In order to achieve this goal, you need to have a secure infrastructure that allows for collaboration between teams across all aspects of your business — from development through testing and deployment.

Security is also an important aspect of DevOps because it provides privacy protection for users while they’re working on their projects as well as helping prevent data loss or exposure due to breaches in security measures implemented by third parties such as cloud service providers (CSPs).


We’ve covered some of the key trends in DevOps, but these aren’t the only ones. The good news is that there’s no shortage of opportunities for professionals who want to make an impact on this industry. There are plenty of roles available and plenty more on the horizon as these technologies continue to evolve.
