Cloud Enables Continuous Delivery and DevOps, According to New Evans Data Survey of Cloud Developers

26% of Cloud Developers Update or Release New Software Versions Daily, 63% Release at Least Once a Week

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud is accelerating the implementation of a rapid continuous delivery model, with 25.9% of developers active in Cloud development releasing updates or new versions at least once a day, and 63.3% releasing at least once a week, as Evans Data's new Cloud Development Survey shows. The survey, conducted in November - December 2013 with 436 active Cloud developers also showed that 51% feel that Cloud computing in general will improve coordination between development and operations, which will also help to enable continuous delivery.

However, opinions and practices diverge across segments.  ISVs are most likely to release software quickly, with 45.7% releasing updates daily and 73.6% making updates at least weekly; whereas only 12.9% of internal corporate enterprise developers make daily releases and 66.4% make them at least once per week.

The two groups also have different opinions about Cloud and DevOps: 76.6% of ISVs think Cloud will make coordination between Development and Operations better and only 9.9% think it will make it worse, but developers working in an internal corporate enterprise are evenly split with 35% thinking Cloud will make coordination better and 35.9% thinking it will make it worse. Additionally another 22.3% of internal developers think Cloud will erode the need for Operations altogether.

"There are obvious differences between developer segments," said Janel Garvin, Evans Data CEO. "ISVs were Agile early adopters and today commercial apps have to be updated frequently in order to stay competitive, whereas internal corporate development is where a continuous delivery and DevOps model would be the most beneficial, and yet that's where there is the most resistance."

Evans Data's Cloud Development Survey has been conducted every six months for the last 5 years. The current survey report contains over 200 pages of data on such topics as Cloud Configurations, Cloud Integrations, Cloud as a Development and Test Platform, Development Tools in the Cloud, Cloud and Mobility, Cloud Storage, Runtimes and Frameworks, Security and Compliance, and more.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
