Over ten years have passed since the inception of DevOps. But the tail of digital business transformation is just now beginning to be wagging thanks to approaches and ideas that were pioneered years ago.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made digital business transformation extremely popular. Regardless of whether the global economy is expanding or declining, organizations of all sizes today have a much deeper understanding of digital processes that allow them to react more skillfully to changing economic situations.
Ironically, business executives used to usually complain that IT simply couldn’t keep up with the demands of the corporation. It will be demonstrated at the CloudBees DevOps World 2022 conference in Orlando the following month that businesses are now utilizing ideas first developed by DevOps pioneers to not only keep up with the current rate of application development innovation but also, in many ways, manage the business itself.
It’s all about the software, as Mitch Ashley, chief analyst at Techstrong Research, a division of Techstrong Group that publishes both DevOps.com and Digital CxO, said recently in a podcast.
Of course, the change in how IT interacts with the businesses it serves has been coming for a while. There has been discussion about how to bridge the gap between IT and the rest of the company for many years. Even with the growth of DevOps, the Jenkins continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform has been in existence for more than 11 years. IT innovation is currently occurring at a rate that many businesses are finding difficult to keep up with.
What began as small teams of application development and deployment experts seeking ways to automate the development and deployment of programs has grown into a multi-billion dollar sector of the software business. And it is causing business transformation on a scale not witnessed since the introduction of PCs running word processing and spreadsheet programs in the 1980s.
It remains to be seen how much of an impact DevOps will have moving forward. DevOps best practices are still being widely adopted, but as Marc Andreessen recently observed, software continues to consume the world. The majority of that software is now created using DevOps best practices and tools like serverless computing frameworks and containers, which make it easier than ever to add new features to applications both inside and outside of the cloud. The rate at which technological advancements are created will only pick up speed.
Therefore, it’s probably never been more important for DevOps experts to get together in person to exchange information and insights. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a significant advancement in DevOps platforms. Within their enterprises, the teams that use those platforms have more power than ever. The greatest approach to understanding the value of DevOps has always been to observe how practitioners use those principles to accomplish a variety of strategic business objectives.
The need to adopt and then continuously enhance DevOps processes and workflows is, as always, an important challenge, regardless of how big or small the organization is. While achieving that goal by yourself may be possible, there’s no denying that doing so is much easier when you spend a few days with thousands of other people who share your interests.
