Let's build SOMETHING GREAT TOGETHER!

devops sgs

The concept of DevOps  was adopted to a large extent in the past year; especially in the IT industry. It implemented a new type of collaboration between different teams in stages of development and operations. Security automation was one of the most vital trends for DevOps in that period. SGS Technologie expects the same in 2020 along with certain other initiatives. We have conducted an extensive research of technological advancements, current business requirements and existing knowledge for compiling a list of 10 DevOps trends that you need to watch for in 2020.

1Serverless Computing

DevOps operations will be simplified with usage of serverless computing in 2020. This will provide  a scalable execution architecture and a predictable pricing model with which end-users will only have to pay for the computing they use and not for idle resources. DevOps will become more affordable and cost-effective with this trend because businesses of various sizes will only have to pay for data they regularly use. The serverless computing model is very cost-effective.

2. Zero-Touch Automation

This is a vision for field service management in which back office operations are completely automated and optimized according to business objectives. It leverages a combination of machine learning and predictive analytics for maximizing efficiency. SGS predicts that 2020 will see an increased implementation of Zero-Touch Automation in DevOps processes. This will be specifically be seen in non-functional testing activities.

3. Emphasis on Skills

Businesses as well as government departments will focus on training their employees and improving DevOps skills. This will add to the inclination of companies to hire members of DevOps teams from within their organizations for maintain security of data. Developers will have to be trained on adding new skills to their portfolios. This could require the training services of companies such as SGS Technologie as we have a unique team specialized in various DevOps aspects.

4. Increased Measurement of Metrics

Metric in DevOps such as Deployment Frequency, Change Volume, Lead Time, Customer Tickets, and more will become more measurable. These measurements will be based on recognized performance metrics and will be uniformly followed by all companies. Also, business value will outcross velocity as a favored measurement metric in 2020.

5. Adoption by AI and Data Science

There has been a significant rise in AI applications on web, mobile and standalone platforms. This trend will encourage the implementation of DevOps methodologies in data science as well. It will improve cross-functional collaboration between data scientists, achieve continuous testing  and improve algorithms. SGS predicts that DevOps will also augment efficiency in the management of AI and ML-operated applications.

6. Low-Code DevOps

DevOps approaches may be combined with low-code and low-cost platforms such as the popular IFTT (If-This-Then-That). It is a web-based service that can create chains of simple conditional statements named applets. In addition, graphical programming user interfaces such as node graphs may meet this requirement of DevOps in 2020.

7. DevSecOps

Security and development are two important aspects of an IT environment. From this combination, a new practice has been formed – DevSecOps. This sees IT, Dev and Security aligned to achieve automation and security in the DevOps pipeline. In 2020, DevSecOps will increasingly be implemented by adding security to existing DevOps teams and agile processes.

8. Necessity for Cloud-Native Technologies

This year will see a rampant adoption of cloud-native technologies in DevOps processes. This will result in automatically managing the installation, configuration and supervision of cloud computing services. The Cloud-Native approach will enable the faster release of software with cloud automation. The coming year will see several companies focusing more on containers and microservices approaches. That is emphasis will be given on business results rather than the mechanics in developing software.

9. Combining DevOps with Service Management

DevOps and Service Management is expected to co-exist in 2020. This will be augmented with the recent release of ITIL v4. DevOps will focus on the software delivery lifecycle while Service Management will cover all aspects of customer engagement. Hence this combination will be very important for enterprises to deliver large scale IT services in the coming year.

10. Open Source

SGS foresees DevOps adopting more open source tools such as Kubernetes. It will help DevOps teams with the deployment and management of containerized applications. Advantages will include fast container management, better redundancy and uptime. More open source tools will also be used for improving customization and collaboration.

SGS Technologie believes that these trends will shape the implementation of DevOps across all sectors in 2020.  We have an expert DevOps team at our headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida who remain updated with latest technological advancements. Reach out to us for discussing more on the specific solutions we can give you.
