One in three companies plans to embrace DevOps by 2019
Almost half of large organizations (47 percent) have a DevOps approach to at least some, if not all, of their projects. This is according to a new report by Redgate Software, entitled State of Database DevOps.
The company says it has polled 1,000 SQL Server professionals all over the globe, with more than half working at companies with 500 employees or more.
Another third (33 percent) is planning on adopting a DevOps approach within the next two years.
What’s also interesting is that the bigger the company, the bigger the adoption rate. It went up to 59 percent for professionals working at companies with 10,000 employees or more.
Just a fifth, however, are applying DevOps practices to their company's database, as well as its application.
The highest adoption levels were in IT services and retail, followed closely by finance and healthcare.
"We’ve been helping our customers to improve the way they make changes to their databases for over 17 years now", says Kate Duggan, Redgate product marketing manager. "This survey has highlighted that our customers are facing increasing pressure to speed up the delivery of software, and include the databases in the same processes they use for their applications. It means we can ensure we’re in a good position to help them overcome the particular challenges the database brings".
Among those that still haven’t adopted the approach, lacking skills seems to be the biggest obstacle. A lack of awareness for business benefits is also being thrown around, together with small budgets.
