U.S. development to operations market size, by deployment, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted several businesses. However, the global DevOps market witnessed an increase in demand during the pandemic period. This was attributed to the fact that there was a sudden rise in demand for online web-based applications, as organizations were focusing on improving their online presence to target a larger potential audience, supporting the DevOps market’s growth.

DevOps tools ensure a smooth collaboration between the development and operations teams of an enterprise to automate the development, testing, deployment, and operations of software, creating a positive DevOps market outlook. This enables organizations to enhance the quality of the deliverables, mitigate risks, save costs and enhance customer engagement.

Organizations adhering to the conventional waterfall model often realize that updating the software is an expensive and time-consuming affair, and also disrupts the service temporarily. This highlights the importance of standardizing and automating the movement and deployment of applications in various environments throughout their lifecycle in a delivery pipeline, creating robust opportunities for development to operations industry.

The growing demand for advanced technologies to enhance business operations and the increasing requirement for business optimization by enterprises are expected to boost the development to operations industry growth. The development to operations tools helps end-user companies in increasing speed and agility throughout the lifecycle of the application and engage in better collaboration across IT teams to make the organization more efficient and proactive.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the growth of the development to operations industry, owing to the growing importance of cloud platforms and systems in enhancing business growth through digital transformation. Furthermore, businesses all over the world are implementing digital transformation solutions and services to resume and sustain operations during the pandemic.

Organizations adopting DevOps practices are managing to bring in more speed and agility throughout the lifecycle of the application, thereby making them more customer-oriented. The companies operating in the development to operations industry are adopting various strategies to assist their clients in implementing and utilizing DevOps tools.

For instance, in December 2022, Salesforce, Inc., a software company, announced the availability of its DevOps Center, making it easy for its partners to implement DevOps practices and develop extensions and packages & sell them to customers. The development to operations center features automatic change tracing, enabling the development of low-code products for non-technical users, and supporting the growth of the DevOps industry.

However, when it comes to implementing DevOps solutions, businesses face several challenges. The lack of standardization in DevOps tools has led to an undefined process framework resulting in automation without a structured approach. The complications in implementing DevOps solutions, and the lack of software expertise further make it difficult for organizations to deliver seamless results, monitor progress and integrate with the existing infrastructure. These are the primary factors expected to hinder market growth. However, organizations are addressing these challenges by implementing standardized workflows, processes, and protocols which will propel market growth.

Deployment Insights

The cloud segment accounted for the largest market share of over 62.0% in 2022. This growth can be attributed to the widespread adoption of IT trends and policies such as Bring your own device (BYOD), Internet of Things (IoT), mobility, containerization, and virtualization across enterprises.

Cloud technology offers several on-demand capabilities such as cybersecurity, automation, Machine Learning (ML), and big data analytics creating ample amount of opportunities in the development to operations industry. For instance, in January 2021, the DevOps platform GitLab partnered with IBM Cloud to use IBM Cloud Pak to speed up the development of cloud-based DevOps applications by automating various tasks and enhancing the developer team's collaboration.

The on-premise segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.6% over the forecast period, owing to a majority of legacy server deployments, across various organizations to support traditional software test and production environments. The license purchase is mandatory in on-premise deployment and it is valid for use within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure.

This improves security & safety and makes it easier to detect threats from malicious software. This would increase demand for on-premise solutions in highly regulated companies that must securely store sensitive data. These factors are predicted to amplify market growth during the forecast period.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprise segment accounted for the largest market share of 55.0% in 2022. Large enterprises were amongst the first to foster DevOps to improve quality and productivity, streamline workflows, shorten time to market, and reduce costs associated with IT operations such as software development, delivery, and maintenance. Cloud service providers and large IT organizations are expected to increasingly invest in the development to operations tools to manage the software development lifecycle as their primary strategy.

For instance, in March 2022, HCL Technologies Ltd., an IT service company, launched Design to DevOps framework which bough robust harmony between the technical and creative teams to develop next-generation tools to enrich customer experiences. The framework automates User Experience (UX) designs from various sources such as Figma, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe XD, and Adobe Sketch.

The Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs) segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.0% over the forecast period. SMEs are remarkable in their adoption of DevOps tools to shorten the application development process. DevOps tools improve the deployment frequency to meet evolving business needs and remain sustainable in the highly competitive and potential development to operations industry.

SMEs are notably adopting cloud-based DevOps tools to deliver a variety of digital services, owing to the various benefits and cost-effectiveness associated with cloud environments. Increasing customer demands for improved software and services will drive the adoption of DevOps across SMEs to attract potential business clients and increase the revenue stream.

End-use Insights
