Why 2018 is the year for DevOps

While most IT organizations understand the critical need and importance of DevOps, the 2018 Global Developer Report reveals few have completely adopted the methodology.  A study of more than 5,000 responses from software professionals around the world, the report uncovers that although the majority believe DevOps improves cycle time, only 23% say they have adopted a DevOps workflow. What are the major blockers to DevOps adoption and how are developers and IT management navigating the challenging path to continuous delivery? In this webinar we’ll dig the meaning behind the key findings from the report, including:

  • The challenges and status of DevOps adoption
  • Habits of high-performing teams
  • Needs and preferences of developers
  • Top 2018 technology investments

Join us for a discussion with Ashish Kuthiala, Director of Product Marketing at GitLab and founder Alan Shimel to hear their top 5 takeaways from this year’s report and what these trends mean for software professionals in 2018.
