The global Development and Operations (DevOps) software market is expanding on account of its ability to address inefficiencies faced by the IT industry such as the lagging quality of application development projects, inefficient IT projects, missing deadlines, and outages during or after implementation, resulting in increased cost than expected. Development and Operations connects the development, technical operations, and quality assurance personnel in such a way that the entire process of building, releasing, running, and then repeating occurs as a factory, with clear roles and well defined inputs and outputs.
DevOps-ready tools are witnessing a high demand as they help support the DevOps characteristics and facilitate organizations to reduce coding errors. DevOps tools also help enhance the efficiency of operational processes. The use of these tools ensures security and maintainability of operational processes. The increasing cloud adoption is one of the key factors boosting the growth of the global Development and Operations market. The introduction of concepts such as platform as a service (PaaS) and containerization will also help fuel the growth of the market.
Service virtualization is witnessing a rising trend and this is also boding well for the growth of the global Development and Operations market. The growing need for operational agility, customer satisfaction, and increasing penetration of the Internet of Things will drive the growth prospects of the global DevOps market. The complex mechanism of deployment of IoT can be simplified with the help of DevOps tools, and thus, the growth of IoT is benefitting the growth of the global Development and Operations market.

Development and Operations (DevOps) is an enterprise software development phrase which relies upon the efficiency of collaboration, integration, automation and communication of software development and IT operations of the organization. DevOps has emerged from two IT trends, called “agile system administration” and “agile operations”. DevOps toolchain is a combination of tools that support in delivering, developing and managing the application throughout the software development cycle. Each tool in DevOps fits into one or more DevOps initiatives such as planning, creating, verifying, releasing, prepoding, configuring and monitoring. Planning activities include production metrics, project requirements, business metrics, update release metrics, release plan & timing and security policy.
Creating activities are composed of building, coding and designing software development process whereas verifying is associated with activities such as acceptance testing, regression testing and configuration testing. Prepoding comprises of activities which are necessary once the software is ready for deployment including package configuration, approvals and release staging. Releasing relates to activities that include release coordination, promoting applications, fallbacks & recovery and scheduled releases. Configuring comes under the operation side of DevOps, and activities include infrastructure storage, database provisioning and application provisioning. Monitoring is an integral part of DevOps toolchain which helps in identifying specific issues during release and their impact on end-users.
