Category: Devops

Devops started off as a new hype, but it has become the definition of how IT is managed in the cloud era. Developments and operations teams need to work closely together to get the best result possible for the business. Devops is here to stay.

Development

Software development is still growing rapidly. Despite that fact, there are still not enough developers available, the new cloud era has changed the way applications are build, run and managed. This new way of application development has unleashed a redevelopment of many older legacy business applications. A lot of companies are looking at their business processes and how to optimise them in the cloud era, and this usually means the development of new applications and tools.

For example, best-of-breed is becoming more and more popular, where different applications are being combined to get the best possible outcome. These different applications have to work together and developers have to setup Integration platforms like Mulesoft and Dell Boomi to streamline the data processes between applications.

Lowcode

Due to the shortage of developers there is a new emerging trend, called low-code. Low-code, together with no-code gives businesses the opportunity to build new applications based on an existing platform without writing any (no-code) or a lot less (low-code) code. Platforms like Mendix, Outsystems, Betty Blocks, but also Salesforce Lightning, are growing very rapidly.

Open-source

In the DevOps world, the use of open-source software is still rising. Many popular technologies are built in the open-source ecosystem and developed by hundreds or even thousands of developers all working at different companies. New technologies come out of the open-source world, or are donated to the open-source world by big IT vendors. A good example is Kubernetes.
