IDC Market Glance: DevOps Application Life-Cycle Management, 1Q20

By: Melinda-Carol BallouResearch Director, Agile ALM, Quality & Portfolio Strategies

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Glance provides visibility into application life-cycle management (ALM) technologies and processes that enable organizations to deliver high-quality software across the DevOps pipeline for agile, cross-platform deployment. Business stakeholders and developers must come together remotely in the cloud, driven by the current global COVID-19 pandemic imperative. While cloud execution for ALM and DevOps already dominated, the current global health crisis mandates virtual collaboration to design, plan, develop, test, determine quality and security, and deploy applications. To succeed and to scale digital transformation (DX) initiatives, companies rely on software that increasingly must run across multimodal environments, including IoT and emerging technologies. This Market Glance identifies the current process and vendor landscape for DevOps ALM that includes areas such as agile and adaptive planning, development, test/quality, ALM/PLM for IoT, delivery, and orchestration enabled by collaboration.

"In the face of our global health crisis and severe economic disruption, companies are modernizing and evolving traditional approaches to agile ALM as part of strategic DevOps initiatives in the cloud now more than ever," said Melinda Ballou, research director for IDC's Agile ALM, Quality and Portfolio Strategies service. "Organizations must coordinate initiatives virtually across a range of roles and cultures and deploy across a plethora of platforms with widely varying form factors. Automation in the cloud — combined with agile process change — can help drive and then sustain the transition to DevOps — and combining quality with security, DevSecOps unites teams with business stakeholders for remote collaboration. In addition, we see machine learning playing a role to help make ALM data, patterns, and metrics visible, pragmatic, and actionable. We expect intelligent analytics to further support organizations as they pull together their businesses and IT teams during this global pandemic. Strategic commitment to DevOps is enabled by adoption of DevOps ALM, as well as quality software creation demanded by digital transformation, bridging otherwise fractured companies and their networks of partners, clients, and prospective customers."
