The global DevOps PaaS (Platform as a Service) market is projected to grow between the years of 2016 and 2020 at a CAPR of 19.42%.
New research from analyst firm Research and Markets shows that DevOps is shifting from being an emerging trend in the IT market to one that is gaining popularity at a rapid pace.
Why is DevOps platform market seeing such growth?
Thanks to providing a holistic IT environment for the automation of software development processes, DevOps tools are becoming much more popular within the IT industry, in turn increasing the need for a standardised platform.
The need for a standardised platform
According to the report, software development processes are now requiring standardised platforms in order to bridge the gap between software developers and operational teams.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “PaaS is built where the entire IT environment is designed to support test and development processes. Instances of PaaS on public cloud include IBM Bluemix, CloudFoundry from Pivotal, and the Google App Engine whereas for PaaS on private cloud include hosted CloudFoundry. Cloud platform vendors usually offer automation and management tools to consolidate and integrate applications directly into their cloud platforms. As a result, IT organisations get better automation features in the same turnkey cloud platform. This has made PaaS essential for those organisations who approached DevOps and want to automate, test, and develop services.”
Key DevOps players
The report recognises firms such as CA Technologies, IBM Corp., Puppet Inc., Rackspace Inc., and Red Hat Inc., as key players in the global DevOps platform market.
Other prominent vendors in the market are: CFEngine, Chef, Cisco, Clarive, CollabNet, DBmaestro, Dell, Docker, HP, Inedo, Infosys, Microsoft, SaltStack, VersionOne, and VMware.
