These investments include adjusting their processes and structures to accommodate demand in the application economy (58 per cent), training in new people with the right skills (58 per cent) and working with new partners with DevOps expertise or practice (55 per cent).
“DevOps is a critical methodology for organisations in today’s application economy. It is encouraging to see the majority of Australian businesses taking heed and reaping tangible business benefits,” said Jason Pope, director, Pre Sales, CA Technologies Australia and New Zealand.
More than 30 percent of Australian respondents said that they recognise that the need to improve the quality and performance of applications is driving the need for a DevOps strategy. The report also named the following as its business benefits:
- reduction in time spent fixing and maintaining applications (90 per cent)
- software availability across more platforms (88 per cent)
- increased numbers of customers using software services (86 per cent)
- increased collaboration between development and operational departments (86 per cent).
Note to editors
DevOps is a methodology that helps foster collaboration between the teams that create and test applications (Dev) with those that maintain them in production environments (Ops). Vanson Bourne conducted the survey with 100 senior IT and business leaders in Australia.
Vanson Bourne conducted the CA Technologies-sponsored study of 1,425 senior IT and line-of-business executives at enterprise organisations with revenues of $500 million or more in financial services, healthcare, retail, telecommunications and media/entertainment industries.
