Trends that will boost the NextGen DevOps

By Anupama Rathi – AVP, Head of DevOps practice, Infosys

Back in 2007, a Belgian engineer named Patrick Debois, frustrated by the friction between developer and operations teams, started using Agile techniques in development, project management, and system administration. He coined the phrase DevOps, a portmanteau of development and operations.

By 2012, DevOps became a buzzword riding on increasing automation in software lifecycles, and by 2014, the industry witnessed wide adoption of DevOps as many organizations started with CI/CD adoption but only for specific pilots or few digital applications. Advancement in tools and open-source technologies further aided the build, test, deploy and release automation. Most of the digital portfolios have already adopted CICD automation.

The 2021 edition of the annual State of DevOps report by Puppet noted that DevOps has evolved to the point that “many of the teams that are ‘doing DevOps’ well don’t even talk about DevOps anymore—it’s simply how they work.”

The next step for the organizations was to scale this DevOps adoption beyond digital applications and take it to enterprise scale.
