The global DevOps platform market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 19.42% during the period 2016-2020.
DevOps is an emerging trend in the IT market, which is gaining popularity at a rapid pace. DevOps technology combines software development and operational processes to manage end-to-end systems development lifecycle (SDLC). Organizations are embracing DevOps solutions to innovate their software delivery supply chain processes.
DevOps tools are becoming more popular because they provide a holistic IT environment for the automation of software development processes. DevOps works on the principle of collaborative work management systems by combining people, processes, and technology.
PaaS is built where the entire IT environment is designed to support test and development processes. Instances of PaaS on public cloud include IBM Bluemix, CloudFoundry from Pivotal, and the Google App Engine whereas for PaaS on private cloud include hosted CloudFoundry. Cloud platform vendors usually offer automation and management tools to consolidate and integrate applications directly into their cloud platforms. As a result, IT organizations get better automation features in the same turnkey cloud platform. This has made PaaS essential for those organizations who approached DevOps and want to automate, test, and develop services.
According to the report, software development processes require standardized platforms to bridge the gap between software developers and operational teams. Earlier, software development processes were not subject to intermediary technologies (that help to synchronize the work of developers and IT administrators). DevOps is a solution that helps software developers to connect with the operational process, thus helping to speed up the software development process.
Further, the report states that Technical glitches during DevOps application deployment hinders the market growth.
