The research also found that many organisations are struggling with lengthy deployment cycles (29 per cent) and have trouble meeting delivery dates (16 per cent). It is little surprise then that coinciding with the switch from monolithic software strategies is the ever-increasing importance being placed on DevOps that speeds up deployment cycles in order to deliver a better experience. 82 per cent consider DevOps to be of high or critical importance to their organisations over the next year.
Microservices and DevOps come together to deliver real ROI and operational efficiencies. Organisations like Amazon, Netflix, eBay, Facebook, Uber, Groupon, Google all use microservices architecture.
Additionally, this trend towards microservices coincides with an increase in cloud-first strategies with 69 per cent of enterprise organisations currently expanding or upgrading their implementation.
Oliver Presland continues: “New technologies such as serverless, containerisation and microservices are bringing us into a new generation of maximising cloud-first strategies with cloud-native architecture. This exploits the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model and many of our clients are moving to this approach, while optimising their legacy infrastructure.”
