DevOps has gained prominence in the past few years for its ability to develop, test, and deploy the software at a high velocity. The prime focus is to maximize the customer satisfaction, improve the product quality and its performance and speed up the development process. With all these powerful factors more and more enterprises are looking forward to adopting this technology, so it is essential to understand what will be the ruling trends in DevOps in the future.
1. Automation is the key
The automation strategies dominate DevOps and Zero-automation is the new Buzzword for the future. It doesn’t mean that you need to automate every component, but if it is the need of the hour, then you should have the capability to do it. The salient idea is to have a vivid picture of the 6C’s of DevOps development cycle and the implementation of automation between these stages.
- Continuous business planning
- Collaborative development
- Continuous testing
- Continuous release and development
- Customer feedback and satisfaction
- Continuous monitoring
2. Testers with coding knowledge
If you are a tester and have the experience of coding and running automated scripts for test cases then you will be in high demand in 2018. The era of manual testing will take a backseat because it is a time-consuming process which delays the development process. Automated testing is fast, efficient and reliable so testers working with DevOps tools will need to learn to code and create their test scripts.
