When is this DevOps Unicorn Going to Sprout Wings and Fly Me Away to Cloud Nirvana?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


We have been following DevOps for many years and it always seems awesome. Who wouldn't want to deliver more software more often? Also, that 2009 presentation at Velocity with Spock and Kirk was awesome. Sadly, based on how little we, as analysts, see it 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 M&A, 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 fromt he field. The unicorn seems close to sprouting wings.
For the OpenStack community, tracking DevOps is important as one of our major theories is that developers are driving a massive amount of cloud demand and build-out.
