This IDC study provides a forecast for the worldwide DevOps software market for 2018–2022.
"The worldwide DevOps software market achieved a level of $3.9 billion in 2017 according to IDC estimates. The market is forecast to reach $8 billion in 2022, driven by enterprise investments in software-driven innovation to create business value, the adoption of microservices-based application architectures and associated development methodologies, and the increased investment by CTOs and CEOs in highly collaborative and automated application development and operational processes," explains Jim Mercer, research director, DevOps at IDC. "As of 2017, most software vendors have delivered technology and customer guidance to enable their products and cloud services to more easily integrate with DevOps processes and tools. This DevOps enablement behavior by the software vendors is the outcome of strong customer demand, which will continue to accelerate the growth of DevOps software revenue through 2022."
