Where is DevOps going from here in 2020 ?
DevOps is maturing and organizations are catching up to the trends of DevSecOps, cloud-native DevOps, possibilities of further automation and more. Security continued to become more tightly integrated with development lifecycles and organizational workflows.
Containers and functions-as-a-service continued to grow at a rapid pace which helped developers and ops teams get higher control on their applications and infrastructure without compromising speed. While all these developments continue to gain momentum, here is a look of a few developments that might happen in coming months and years.
1. More automation possibilities through AI, Analytics and Data Sciences ML & AI, Data Sciences and Analytics offer a lot of promise in the DevOps ecosystem. Data Sciences can help DevOps teams to pre-determine where issues can potentially arise in Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Development (CD) and take pre-emptive actions. It can help developers to take advantage of opportunities offered by AI by making changes to improve the CI pipeline, this making DevOps teams to be proactive rather than reactive.
2. Momentum in Go Lang adaptation among DevOps community Golang is heavily used for DevOps tools like Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, Etcd and many more and the programming language gels well with the overall DevOps objectives like scalability, application performance, modularity, efficiency and portability in the application delivery process. Golang can help organizations develop highly-scalable concurrent programs and achieve precise outcomes for development organizations.
3. Further rise of Serverless architecture in DevOpsDevOps and Serverless architecture go hand-in-hand allowing companies and their teams to save time, be resilient in workflows and drive down costs. DevOps teams shall increasingly focus on developing applications based on Serverless architecture to improve developer productivity, rapid deployment, enhance scale be light-weight.
4. Innovation and transformation through cloud-native DevOps To drive innovation, advance digital transformation and improve customer experience, DevOps teams need to deploy technologies that can automatically install, configure, supervise and manage the Cloud services. With Cloud automation of DevOps services, the product releases can become faster and the majority of enterprise workloads can move to the Cloud. Industry predicts that there will be boom in Kubernetes, adaptation of Cloud-native and agile principles to develop apps that can run on multiple Clouds.
5. DevSecOps becomes more commonplace Many organizations started deploying Cloud-based infrastructure, Serverless architecture, DevOps culture and processes helping them to release code much faster. This also improves security risks and this heightens the need for security to be integrated into the organizational processes thereby reducing vulnerabilities in the system.
