Some of the key Tech and Trends in DevOps

Many companies acknowledge that best practices include Agile methodologies and CI/CD pipelines. They are migrating from a monolithic architecture to microservices and containerized architecture is a major trend. Microservices and DevOps both target “operational efficiency”. Docker and Kubernetes are key tools in this area.

Most organisations are taking action to build a more cloud-centric foundation. AWS is currently the clear market leader in cloud computing but Azure and GCP are also continuing to see growth. Many companies are looking to adopt multi-cloud approaches and support cloud-agnostic applications.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become a key tenet in a cloud-based approach, allowing for reduced downtime. There will also be an upsurge in Continuous Configuration Automation (CCA) tools moving forward.

As companies move towards multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments, management of these systems will become increasingly complex and fully automated configuration management tools such as Ansible, Chef, Salt, Kickstart and Puppet will become key.

DevOps Engineers that can build CI/CD pipelines, automate deployments, containerize, build internal tools and have deep knowledge of AWS, Azure and GCP are in high demand and companies are willing to pay premiums to secure them.
