Open source software development in DevOps trumps all others
Open source users are more likely to achieve all-round success in software development as opposed to developers who don't use open source.
That's one of the findings of a recent survey aimed at evaluating the current state of the growing DevOps industry undertaken by DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) in collaboration with Google Cloud.
Some 30 000 respondents participated in the survey, the results of which have been published in the 2018 Accelerated State of DevOps Report.
According to DORA, DevOps is not a software development methodology or technique but rather a software engineering culture and practice that is aimed at unifying software development (Dev) and software operations (Ops).
Other findings in the report include:
* Software delivery and availability unlock competitive advantages such as increased profitability, productivity, market share, customer satisfaction, and the ability to achieve organisational goals.
* The utilisation of cloud infrastructure, improved software delivery performance, and high performers are 23 times more likely to leverage all cloud computing's essential characteristics.
* Outsourcing functions such as testing or operations hurt performance, and low performers are almost four times more likely to outsource those functions than high performers.
