Jay Lyman, Senior AnalystJay covers enterprise software for 451 Research,focusing primarily on Linux operating systemsand vendors, application development anddeployment, systems management and cloudcomputing.As a 451 Research analyst, Jay has presentedat numerous industry events, includingdevopsdays, OSCON and LinuxCon, coveringLinux and open source software, cloudcomputing and devops.
Current StateStill early for cloud and devopso Application development and deployment teams (i.e. operatoins) are separate, siloed or worseo Application deployment is heavily reliant on specialization, scripting and often becomes a whack-a-mole propositiono There is great interest in utilizing virtual and cloud resources, joining dev and ops and changing process wholesale, but where to start?
The Next LevelProduction, enterprise appso Today’s devops and continuous management efforts tend to center on Web and mobile applicationso Enterprise applications are a bigger challenge (parallels and contrast to open source software, which snuck into the enterprise over 10 years)o Beyond speed, efficiency, quality and cost savings, organizations are increasingly looking for ROI from application deployment and IT operations
Response and DisruptionAnswerso Devops=DIY – organizations are striving for automation, continuous deployment and devops, but must take on the bulk of the challenge themselves – similar to OSS years agoo PaaS= support for devops and polyglot programming, but not yet readyo Auto-ops = big challenge with greater, enterprise application complexity, application logic, data, security and other concerns, but also big opportunity …
Paying for PaaS$3.0$2.0$1.0$0.0 2012 2013 2014 2015 Revenue dollars in billions
Comparison to SaaS$2.5$2.0$1.5$1.0$0.5$0.0 2012 2013 2014 2015 Revenue dollars in billions
Market EvolutionRewardso More educated, anxious audience = faster, paid adoptiono Leveraging devops, Paas, auto-ops for faster, more automated, efficient and effective releaseso Stakeholder spread – as devops and continuous management of applications and deployment widens out within organizations and more broadly in the industry, we see greater involvement beyond devs and IT ops (dbas, security, business analysts, field professionals, etc.). This is part of the drive to treat technology and IT operations as business divisions that should produce value and ROI.
