Addressing the Challenge of Adopting and Scaling DevOps

This IDC Perspective addresses the challenge of adopting and scaling DevOps. The new digital economy is moving at breakneck speed, and organizations that do not modernize their application delivery practices will be left behind and ultimately irrelevant. DevOps application development methodologies provide the framework organizations need to modernize by improving quality, velocity, and agility. Using IDC market data, this IDC Perspective provides the current state of DevOps adoption and insights that can be used to not only adopt DevOps but scale it across their application landscape.According to Jim Mercer, research director, DevOps at IDC, "Most enterprise organizations have already adopted DevOps as part of pilot or greenfield projects. As enterprise organization mature, they are hitting a ceiling of scalability and they struggle to expand the use of DevOps across their application portfolio. These organizations will not reap the benefits without a comprehensive approach to DevOps adoption. Scaling DevOps across your application landscape requires the due diligence of gaining support from executive leadership, building the proper agile foundation, using automation to drive velocity, leveraging 3rd Platform technologies, and fostering a cross-functional culture of trust and transparency."
