DevOps to become key part of business: CA Technologies

Study reveals majority of Australian respondents have or plan to adopt DevOps

A recent study commissioned by CA Technologies has shown 57 per cent of respondents from Australia are already adopting, or plan to adopt, DevOps strategies to improve efficiency and profitability.

DevOps is a methodology that helps foster collaboration between the teams that create and test applications (Dev) with those that maintain them in production environments (Ops).

The report, TechInsights Report: What Smart Businesses Know About DevOps, was conducted by Vanson Bourne, and surveyed 1300 respondents that the company describes as senior IT decision-makers in financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, public sector and telecommunications.

The survey was conducted in 21 countries around the world in May through July 2013, it included 450 in the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) and 75 in Australia.

The report states that Australian companies that adopted the approach have increased the number of customers using their services by 30 per cent and reduced the cost of development and operations by 19 per cent.

Respondents from the APJ region who implemented DevOps reported a 23 per cent increase in revenue and a 26 per cent increase in the number of software and services explored and developed.

The report indicates that both the business and IT departments of Australian organisations are equally focused on DevOps, 45 per cent will measure success by looking primarily at external business factors, like increased revenue, faster product rollout and improved position in the market. Another 47 per cent will measure success by looking primarily at internal factors, such as lower costs, fewer bugs and improved efficiencies.

In order to implement the new DevOps focus, 59 per cent of Australian respondents intend to hire new employees with appropriate skills, 73 per cent plan to invest in more training for development and operations personnel, and 69 per cent plan to invest in new tools.
