Worldwide xOps Census and Forecast, 2022–2027
This IDC Market Perspective introduces IDC's xOps census and forecast data for the first time. This data includes worldwide and regional views on the 2022 census and a forecast through 2027 for eight modern IT titles that include at least some operational-level responsibilities. These titles include DataOps, DevOps, DevSecOps, ITOps, MLOps, platform engineering, site reliability engineering, and systems administrator.
"This IDC census and forecast data was developed as a companion product to the IDC developer census and forecast, rounding out our count of IT professionals involved in today's modern datacenter and overseeing cloud-based deployments," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "This collaborative effort involved analysts covering artificial intelligence, data management, development, DevOps, DevSecOps, and IT operations and platform services, bringing many key IDC thought leaders together. This data set opens the door for IDC to produce deeper cross tabs of this data in the future."
