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.

DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
