“IDC continues to observe that DevOps adoption is surging. Organizations are finding it difficult to meet application time to value demands using traditional application lifecycle practices, and as a result, application delivery teams are turning towards DevOps to drive application delivery speed and bolster application quality. Yet, while DevOps adoption has grown, organizations are at early stages of building DevOps expertise and maturity. Because of this, application services providers who are skilled in DevOps disciplines that range from advisory to application delivery are well positioned to aid buyer organizations with advancing their DevOps competencies and better realize the benefits of DevOps delivery.” said Peter Marston, Research Director, IDC
