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

Development to operations is a set of tools and practices to drive collaboration, integration, automation, and communication of software development, along with IT operations in an enterprise. It also helps enterprises increase their efficiency and productivity, streamline workflows, and improve their operating activities. Development and operations teams work adjacently, distribute responsibilities and combine workflows to reduce inefficiencies and save time. Continuous integration and streamlined delivery are the two DevOps practices that can ensure the quality of application updates and infrastructure changes that reliably deliver services faster and maintain an optimal end-user experience.

The growing demand for advanced technologies to enhance business operations and the increasing requirement for business optimization by enterprises is expected to boost the market growth. Development to operations helps in increasing speed and agility throughout the lifecycle of the application, and better collaboration across IT teams makes the organization more efficient and proactive.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the growth of the development to operations market, 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 in order to resume and sustain operations during the pandemic.

Development to operations often provides cloud-based services to easily associate the tools such as query surge and slack. Query surge tool integrates into the DevOps pipeline for continuous testing. Additionally, it provides separate operations, which means each developer focuses on a single tool without understanding the entire toolchain. Along with better collaboration and faster turnaround, its increased efficiency helps to a quicker development process that is less prone to errors.

There are methods for automating DevOps tasks such as continuous integration server automating the code testing, reducing the manual work required. For instance, scalable infrastructures, such as cloud-based platforms, increase the accessibility amongst the team while addressing the issues with distributed complexity. As a result, testing and deployment operations speed up, boosting the growth opportunities during the forecast period.

However, when it comes to implementing DevOps solutions, businesses face several challenges. The lack of standardized DevOps tools has led to an undefined process framework resulting in automation without a structured approach. The complications in implementing DevOps solutions and lack of software expertise further make it difficult for the 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 the market growth.

Deployment Insights

The cloud segment accounted for the largest market share of 62.3% in 2021. The cloud-based solution allows outsourcing of IT tasks for better work efficiency. Cloud technology offers on-demand, real-time capabilities ranging from computing, big data and analytics, machine learning, cyber security, application development, and DevOps functions along with processes. This combination of offerings drives agile, elastic, cost-efficient IT delivery to its end-user.

It encourages enterprises to invest in new product developments in line with the evolving business needs. For instance, HSBC has signed a multi-year deal with DevOps platform Cloud Bees to standardize software delivery for more than 23,000 developers, globally. These benefits offered by cloud deployment will enhance the segment growth.

The on-premise segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 19.4% during the forecast period. On-premise deployment made it mandatory to purchase a license to use it within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure. This improves security features 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 boost the market growth during the forecast period.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprise segment accounted for the major market share of 60.3% in 2021. 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 toolchain, to manage the software development lifecycle as their primary strategy. For instance, in February 2020, Amazon Web Services invested USD 236 million to build a data center facility in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This investment helped the company to uphold the adoption of cloud-powered DevOps services across public and private enterprises.

The SME segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 21.9% during the forecast period. SMEs are increasingly adopting DevOps practices to enhance the frequency of deployments and shorter development lifecycles to maintain market competitiveness which is expected to accelerate market growth in the forecast period.

Furthermore, DevOps has numerous advantages, such as saving time for ideas, testing, designing, and other aspects of business growth, as a result, most SMEs are augmenting the implementation of DevOps technologies to deliver software automating processes. The increasing adoption of DevOps by SMEs in the development service and software optimization is some of the factors predicted for the market growth in the forecast period.

End-Use Insights

The IT segment held a 37.2% share in 2021 and is expected to dominate the market by 2030. The IT sector faces several challenges, including quality assurance, release timelines, and application downtime. DevOps tools and solutions are intended to increase business efficiency and meet changing business requirements. As a result, they can easily address the challenges that the IT industry is facing. The IT industry, in particular, is utilizing DevOps solutions to automate its processes associated with the software development, testing, and operations, thereby improving software quality, reducing delivery time, and improving customer experience.

Global development to operations market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The BFSI application segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 21.7% during the forecast period, mainly due to the economic and technological changes plus the rising popularity of smartphones as well as smart devices to carry commercial and banking transactions.

Owing to the increasing market penetration of software automation tools, to deliver efficient outcomes across the BFSI and retail sectors, regional market growth has been accelerated.

The ability to meet ever-increasing user needs with rapid solution delivery has resulted in broader adoption of development to operations. For instance, CollabNet VersionOne teamed up with Xebia Labs to create a new DevOps platform for the companies. This collaboration would help the companies in offering their consumer bases with end-to-end management capabilities and visibility required to develop software solutions securely, reliably, and quickly. Such initiatives contribute to the growth of the DevOps market in the region.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest developing regional market, at a CAGR of 24.2%, due to the increasing digitization in the banking sector. Most banks have adopted agile project planning and execution processes to keep up with the frequent business requirements that accompany efforts to transform clients' banking experiences.
