DevOps Trends 2020- 5 Best Predictions Of The Year
DevOps has evolved significantly since most people thought it was a buzzword. DevOps has become the crucial point of focus for a lot of organizations and it has been reshaping the world of enterprise software development solution for the last few years. Experts predict that DevOps is going to reach its peak at 2020.
The DevOps evolution has already made significant headway among many enterprises in the past few years, and will continue to be extensive. 2020 has been a crucial time for the leaders to plan and implement DevOps in their businesses processes. Most of the senior level executives have accepted the fact that the role of DevOps is evolving- from providing marginal efficiency in isolated projects to being a positive catalyst for innovation and disruption.
A study conducted by IDC has shown a clear forecast for the worldwide DevOps software market for 2018-2022. According to the study, the DevOps market achieved a level of 2.9 billion in 2017 and the market is expected to reach at $6.6 billion in 2022.
So this article tells you about the predictions of the major trends that will drive DevOps in 2020-
Trend 1: DevOps AI
When it comes to building more builds in a very efficient and less time-consuming manner, DevOps automation is non-replaceable. It creates an ideal environment for AI and Machine Learning to play a significant role. The extensive amount of data always allow the analytical technologies to detect the patterns, make right prediction and ensures the smooth run for the CI/CD pipeline.
The process of Manual Testing has already started to becoming the thing of the past as now AI is being used to predict how code will work based on the activity and repository logs. AI will be implemented to automate the functional, acceptance and deployment testing, so that organizations can make the software release process more faster and free of errors by ensuring continuous delivery.
The growing use of infrastructure as code would give operation managers better flexibility and administration in allocating server environment and cluster, just by changing the code description. The best part of DevOps is that people won’t have to write code as AI will use the large bodies of log reports to make well informed guess about needed action and generate the code through the automated service.
Trend 2: The Use Of Serverless Architecture
DevOps can be reached to the next level with server-less architecture. It’s not actually free of server, but there’s a third-party; a cloud service which takes care of the entire architecture. This special architecture allows the developers only to focus on the “Application Part”. FaaS and BaaS are the two crucial aspects of the serverless architecture. By implementing server-less architecture, you can cutdown the costs, save time and ensure resilient flow of work.
Trend 3: Low-Code DevOps
Even today’s DevOps automation streamlines the processes of CI/CD, it still requires developers to define the significant part of the pipelines through job specifications, YAML files and other intensive activities that are done by manual coding.
As we know the fact that DevOps majorly focuses on speeding up the entire process, we expect DevOps platforms to come up with the low-code tools that will help define the pipeline with just point-and-click UI.
These tools allows the enterprise software development services to make the wide use of technologies for creating and maintaining pipelines, policies and helm charts.
Trend 4: A Major Shift From Monolithic To Microservices Architecture
There was a time when monolithic architecture used to be everyone’s favorite but now it has become the “thing of the past”. Microservice architecture has out-gamed monolithic architecture for several crucial reasons. The monolithic architecture is a form of single or unified unit whereas the microservices refer to the fragments of small units that are connected. DevOps only focuses on those units where it is utmost needed. Microservices and DevOps go hand in hand as both of them focus on same thing-Operational Efficiency.” When it comes to saving time and efforts, Microservices architecture plays a significant role.
Organizations like Amazon, Netflix, eBay, Facebook, Uber, Groupon, Google are all using the microservices architecture.
5. DevSecOps Will Become The Ultimate Shield Of Security
DevSecOps has penetrated the entire IT domain, especially the domain of DevOps. It teaches and encourages the security-first approach in the DevOps process and integrates the security measures in the entire DevOps mechanism.
DevOps offers the following advantages:
Provides great swiftness in speed and makes the security system more agile.
Fast response towards a change
Establishes a healthy channel of better collaboration, communication and coordination
Quick identification of vulnerabilities or bugs in the code.
The team members can put their sole attention on other crucial things instead of focusing on security features.
Whether it’s about providing software development services or selling goods, DevOps has become the inevitable part of any organization. For many organizations, DevOps has become a standard way of working.
All these 5 predicted trends indicate that there will be a exciting time ahead in the universe of DevOps.
