Introduction

All enterprises today are dealing with transformation at some level, be it large scale or smaller process changes. The phrase ‘change is the only constant’ has never been more apt, especially when we take the IT industry’s example. As consumer expectations evolve at the speed of thought, it becomes imperative for delivery processes to match that speed, or else, face the risk of being forgotten.

When we think of the transformation in the software development business landscape, the biggest shift has happened in terms of expectations from the software itself. In a digital first world, SaaS is the new normal, and everything is moving on to the cloud. Cloud adoption has moved way beyond being just another buzzword; in fact, it’s rather mainstream. It’s the future of shipping software to production.

Worldwide spending on public cloud services and infrastructure will be more than double over the 2019-2023 forecast period and cross USD 500 million, according to IDG

So what exactly does this new normal mean for enterprises and their leaders? It means that the need to adapt, operate with agility and ensure speedy delivery is the need of the hour. It is time to move on from traditional legacy processes to those that can deliver maximum impact in the new age. Of course, this takes time and effort, and cannot happen overnight, but it is important that IT leaders and teams at least initiate the thought process of taking a step towards this change.

Industry reports predict that the DevOps market size is estimated to grow from USD 2.9
