See recording of me giving the talk at DevOpsDays Austin here: http://coteindustries.com/post/84832061261/devops-unicorn-devopsdays-austin-2014

We have been following DevOps for many years and it always seems to portend much awesomeness in the future. Who wouldn't want to deliver more software more often? Sadly, based on how little we, as analysts, see DevOps in practice, it still seems like something of a unicorn. Interestingly, this has been changing rapidly. This presentation will present 451's freshest analysis of where the DevOps market is in maturity, including a DevOps practitioner survey (based on 200 DevOps and DevOps-minded folks), early market-sizing, a landscape overview and quantitative market studies - along with plenty of silly, but nonetheless helpful qualitative hand-waving. Our gut instinct is that DevOps is following a pattern very similar to Agile Development and open source, which are two cycles we can use to think about DevOps. There are some early best practices and cases to go over, but very few - part of what we hope to suss out with this talk are more stories from the field. Our early studies show that there's much room for improvement, but a nice zeal for doing the actual work. The unicorn seems close to sprouting wings.

When is this DevOps Unicorn Going to Sprout Wings and Fly? - DevOps Days Austin, May 2014

  1. 1. When is this DevOps Unicorn Going to Sprout Wings and Fly? http://bit.ly/UnicornDevOpsDaysAustin @cote | cote@451Research.com #DevOpsDays Austin, May 2014
  2. 2. 2 • IT research, advisory, professional services, datacenter certification, and events • One company with 3 operating divisions • Global focus • 200+ staff, 100+ analysts • 1,300+ client organizations: enterprises, vendors, service providers, and investment firms • 7,500+ individual subscribers • Reach 16,000 end-users annually http://451research.com - @451Research

Before 451 I worked Dell in corporate strategy/M&A for software & cloud; as an analyst for 6+ years at RedMonk; software developer for 10+ years.

  6. 6. 6 We believe that application development is, indeed, a vital and valuable part of the industry: our theory is that the majority of cloud spending originates with software developers as the prime movers. Applying the formula 'IT - SaaS = what?' it increasingly seems the case that the 'what?' is custom-written software for ISVs, SaaS and increasingly companies like Nike and Starbucks that are relying on in-house software development for new products such as the Fuelband and mobile payments. Starbucks, for example, is estimated to have pulled in $1bn in sales from its mobile app. While developers are notoriously parsimonious when it comes to paying for tools and middleware, Atlassian's $149m in revenue is testament that companies will pay for developer tools straight out. We also note the bets the venture community is placing on developer-oriented companies like those coming from the post-seed round, pre-A round firm Heavybit. - Me! “Atlassian bundles ALM components around the popular git version control system,” 451 Research, March 4th, 2014 It’s custom software development
