The New Year brings new hope for technology, especially as consumers and organizations anticipate continued growth in areas that will help increase productivity and innovation. Here are some of the top DevOps and cloud predictions we found around the web for the year ahead.
Prediction 1: Serverless Overtakes Containers
Containers gained prominence in 2017 but experts predict that serverless technologies win out in 2018. Serverless solutions will handle container tasks, similar to what cloud did to virtualization in the data center about a decade ago – DevOps.com
Prediction 2: DevOps Becomes More Organized
DevOps initiatives generally begin at the bottom with program managers and developers. With more widespread adoption and leadership buy-in now taking hold, DevOps strategies will incur greater top-level scrutiny and acceptance in the year ahead – Shashi Kiran, Forbes
Choosing a Global Software Development Partner to Accelerate Your Digital Strategy
To be successful and outpace the competition, you need a software development partner that excels in exactly the type of digital projects you are now faced with accelerating, and in the most cost effective and optimized way possible.
Prediction 3: DevSecOps Will Get Its Day
In prior years, the name of the game was innovation, sometimes to the detriment of security. As organizations in 2018 begin to understand that IoT, artificial intelligence, and cloud are not threats to innovation, but instead complements, we will see a steady march towards DevSecOps. In this world, everyone wins – eWeek
Prediction 4: DevOps Programs Mature
For most, DevOps is still a portmanteau of development and operations. For Forrester principal Peter Stroud, 2018 will see a maturation of DevOps programs as organizations as teams leverage automated testing, operations professionals learn how to code, and focusing on specific coding languages as opposed to learning new ones – TechTarget
Prediction 5: DevOps Expands into IoT
As organizations adopt edge computing to support the localized data for their IoT projects, DevOps programs will be there to ensure on-time accelerated delivery. With the jump of IoT and DevOps, hardware companies will effectively become software developers too – IT Pro Portal
