The global development and operations (DevOps) market size was valued at USD 3,709.1 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 14,969.6 million by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 19.1% during the forecast period.

An increasingly complex IT infrastructure, which is a blend of physical, virtual, and cloud environment has made the IT processes more complicated. In this scenario, DevOps comes into the picture by moving considerable management processes out of human hands with the help of automation. This is one of the factors due to which the organizations are aiming to deploy a high level of DevOps automation and sophisticated container orchestration while choosing cloud hosting for their workloads. Development and operations help in increasing an organization’s speed to deliver applications and provide improved services to the customers. Software Deployment Operations (SDO) performance is a key enabler and differentiator for teams and organizations for many industries. This is because SDO enables organizations to leverage software applications to provide improved outcomes. Implementing DevOps practices and capabilities during technology transformation pays off in terms of organizational performance along with quality outcomes.

According to a White Paper published by Capgemini in 2016, DevOps has the potential to increase software deployment frequency by factor 30 and lead times by factor 8,000. DevOps tools offer numerous benefits, such as driving agility and quality innovation, while reducing interruptions in production. Some of the major types of DevOps tools include configuration management tools, API tools, application and infrastructure monitoring tools, collaboration and organizational tools, and build automation tools. DevOps is being envisioned to be the future of application lifecycle automation. Automation in a repetitive task helps to speed up and parallelize tasks, enabling teams and organizations to improve quality of work, task iteration, and consistency. Furthermore, it saves time spent on low-value tasks. As the level of automation increases, high performers in the industry provide free time to their technical staff to do innovative work for providing value addition to the organizations.

Elements, such as deployment automation, continuous integration, version control, and infrastructure automation are referred to as the most common starting points of the DevOps journey. When development and operation teams begin to comprehend the importance of collaboration and sharing, they function to implement technologies and processes rapidly. This facilitates the sharing of knowledge, ideas, metrics, processes, and enabling technologies. However, DevOps faces certain implementation challenges including lack of standard definition, lack of standard approach regarding development and operations adoption, and need for customization for each implementation.


“Growing Popularity of DevOps Tools to Augment Market Demand”

DevOps tools are increasingly getting popular since they are facilitating the development process within a combined team while reducing instances of error. Such tools help to improve the security and stability of the software deployment process. Platform-as-a-service and containerization are among the key development and operations s software market trends. The virtualization of such services is becoming a major trend, simplifying the adoption and implementation of DevOps. The market is witnessing a rising demand for high operational flexibility, client satisfaction, and the penetration of Internet of Things (IoT).

Moreover, DevOps functions as a distinctive method of enterprise software development. Software deployment cannot function without proper cooperation, automation, and communication between software developers and IT operation teams. It resulted from a combination of two popular methods, i.e., Agile Operations and Agile System Administration. DevOps tools facilitate the development process tremendously, thereby increasing its quality, reducing code errors, and improving security and operation procedure maintenance. In 2018, Docker, Slack and GitHub emerged as some of the most popular DevOps tools.

 “Ongoing Shift to Hybrid Cloud and Improvement in Operational Efficiency to Favor Growth”

DevOps in hybrid cloud allows quick and flexible provisioning of services which balances the total cost of ownership of managing the development and in-house runtime infrastructure. Hybrid cloud has led to bridging the gap between the IT sector and businesses by improving efficiency and agility, while rapidly delivering IT resources at a low-cost. Moreover, the switching cost between private & public cloud models is high and it has therefore, motivated the adoption of the hybrid cloud model. It would further accelerate the DevOps market growth in the coming years.

Additionally, operations managed by the automated devices are more reliable as compared to the manual procedures. Thus, to reduce the expenses of operational failure, companies have moved towards automated software deployment. DevOps also offer reduced cost of maintenance in IT operations. Due to these factors, the DevOps market is expected to exhibit high growth opportunities during the forecast period.


By Offering Analysis

“DevOps Software Segment to Generate the Highest Revenue During the Forecast Period”

Based on offering, the market is classified into software and services. By using DevOps software and services, enterprises are developing innovative and cost-effective ways of enhancing operational benefits. The software segment held maximum DevOps market share in 2018, owing to faster deployment rate, scalability, and agility features. Additionally, the need for lower Capital Expenditure (CAPEX), Operational Expenditure (OPEX), and regulatory compliance requirements are likely to be responsible for the dominance of the DevOps software segment. The enterprises adopting DevOps solutions are more inclined towards deploying DevOps solutions to run their key business functions.

By Deployment Analysis

“Hybrid Deployment Segment to Exhibit a Healthy CAGR due to Switching Cost and Improved Efficiency”

Based on deployment, the market is fragmented into public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid segments. The public cloud segment accounted for the largest market size in 2018. Also, there has been an increasing adoption of cloud technologies and agile frameworks, along with the digitization of enterprises. This is done to automate business processes and thus, has an enormous potential to offer a substantial operational opportunity. Emerging technology trends of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are offering a positive push to the market. AI and ML algorithms process vast amounts of information and help in performing unskilled tasks, hence, allowing professionals to focus more on the targeted work, learn patterns, observe problems, and propose solutions.

The public cloud segment held the largest market share in 2018 mainly due to the growing demand for cloud segment in the system architectures and web servers by several industries. Public cloud offers accessibility, remote location access, faster deployment, and various other enterprise benefits, such as scalability and flexibility, which is contributing to the higher adoption of public cloud.

By Organization Size Analysis

“SMEs Segment to Showcase a Healthy CAGR Owing to Higher Profitability”

Based on organization size, the market is segregated into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises (SMEs) segments. Till now, the majority of DevOps have been deployed in large enterprises. The enterprises implementing DevOps are more inclined towards deploying DevOps solutions to run their crucial business functions. Large enterprises have been the early adopters of DevOps to enhance quality and productivity, streamline workflows, reduce time to market, and minimize the costs associated with IT operations (software development, delivery, and maintenance). In the SMEs, challenging factors, namely, lack of skilled workforce, preference towards legacy methods, and the need for standardized DevOps tool are hindering the adoption of DevOps.
