In recent years, DevOps has emerged as one of the most used software development technology.
It is the fusion of development and operations teams for faster delivery of software using automation. DevOps also increases efficiency by removing the bugs in code and also the cost of the project.
Since DevOps is so efficient, more and more companies are looking for DevOps professionals. According to a report, the DevOps market has grown from $8.88 billion to $10.84 billion in 2023. It is expected to grow to $57.9 billion by the end of 2030.
DevOps is also constantly evolving with time for better software. Here are the top trends to watch out for in DevOps in 2024.
Top 6 DevOps Trends To Look Forward In 2024
These are the top trends in DevOps that you should look forward to in 2024 and the coming years.
As we look at the future of DevOps, Microservice architecture is going to be used more and more in 2024.
Microservice architecture is breaking down the code into smaller pieces so that they can be developed and deployed individually.
With the code broken into smaller pieces, the development process becomes more agile, flexible, and scalable.
With this approach, companies can change their code more quickly if they want to put out a feature update according to a new trend faster than their competitors without disrupting the application.
Low Code Application
Low code or no code applications are in trend because they save resources and time for the company.
The application can be created even by a beginner by dragging and dropping features. However, it is better if you know a little Linux or some other coding language depending on your company’s framework.
By incorporating low-code applications in the development and operations process, we can save costs on a professional developer and also the time needed in coding.
More Focus on Security
Since there have been increased cyber-attacks, security is becoming the main concern for software companies to save user data.
Now DevSecOps is being integrated into the system. It stands for Development, Security, and Operation.
With more focus on DevSecOps, security is given the main priority. Now security measures are integrated earlier in the development phase not at the end to make sure that the code is secure.
Serverless computing is one of the top trends in DevOps.
Managing development, development is hectic. Managing servers on top of that makes the work more complex and tough to handle.
So the best way to make the process smooth and focus on the development and deployment of the product is to outsource server management.
With many good server management companies in the market, now you dont have to worry about the server space, server management, etc. All you have to do is focus on your coding work.
This will not just save time for your organization but also save costs and boost the productivity of the team.
In the last 2 years, AI has been incorporated in almost every business. And since DevOps already runs on automation, AI integration will be very helpful for companies.
With advanced AI, tasks like code testing, bug fixing, etc can be done with the help of AI in no time.
This will not just save the time of the developers but also save the company resources.
Rise of NoOps
This is another trend that we can see in the DevOps in 2024. This means No operations. With AI and ML on the rise in DevOps, and server infrastructure outsourced, it is expected that organizations won’t require a dedicated operations team.
This will save a lot of company costs and also the software delivery time will be decreased.
However, this will take a little time because the operations team is integral to DevOps and AI may take some time to take over.
DevOps has gained immense popularity in recent years and is expected to gain more popularity.
It is beneficial in reducing the time of software deployment, reducing the bugs in codes, increasing the efficiency and quality of the work, and also the security by bridging the gap between the development team and the operations team.
It is no secret that more and more companies are adopting DevOps to stay ahead of their competition and will continue to do so in 2024. One should also be aware of the trends in DevOps to stay updated.
In this article, we shared the top 6 trends in DevOps we can expect in 2024 so that we can stay updated and keep delivering faster updates for your software.
