With more than half of the respondents’ primary function being related to DevOps, the study finds collaboration to be the driving factor among DevOps practitioners irrespective of the size of the organization
The survey reports top three DevOps initiatives: Automated build tests (64 percent), Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) (57 percent) and configuration management. Collaboration, infrastructure as code and cloud application management are also seen as key initiatives.
To understand the enterprise expenditure, the survey also concentrated on budgeting. Investigating on ROI factor revealed that 50-60 percent respondents were not able to determine the returns as companies overlooked the total cost of ownership while calculating.
