Is DevOps implementation easy? The likes of Netflix and Facebook have shown continuous improvement reiterating the technical and business benefits of DevOps — shorter development cycles, increased deployment frequency, and faster time to market. On the other hand, a high percentage of enterprises are still figuring it out — oscillating between short and quick successes and failing to make the big jump to mainstream.
As enterprises continue to add more tools to handle specialized portions of software delivery, an alignment has begun to place more emphasis on data than tools. This alignment realizes the value of data — not just processes or applications. The result: a real need to leverage insights into the practices and better optimize them. Multiple technologies, processes, applications, and systems need to be updated and maintained on a regular basis to keep this fragile ecosystem functioning properly.
Enterprises have a big challenge ahead of them. With experts predicting that DevOps is moving towards mainstream implementation, organizations — including federal agencies — are under tremendous pressure to deliver high-velocity and quality software, increase standardization, and implement best practices. Adopting DevOps practices and utilizing automation technology — which aids businesses with their digital transformation process — are more significant now than ever.
Let's face it — no single tool can offer all the capabilities to get you through your DevOps approach. You need to find the right mix of tools, strategies, and teams to suit their workflows and approaches. With 2018 projecting a movement for DevOps into mainstream implementation, this becomes even more relevant.
DevOps gets a jumpstart in 2018 with predictions of an early mainstream adoption and implementation. Analysts, IT leaders, and DevOps experts declared 2017 as 'the year of DevOps' and have predicted some major trends for DevOps in 2018. After digging deep and picking the brains of a few DevOps experts, we believe that DevOps will slowly enter the turf of mainstream adoption but it comes with barriers that may continue to exist through 2020. We can only be prepared for what's coming!

The benefits of DevOps are clear — high-performance, faster deployment, and quicker response to crisis. Businesses today are either getting started with DevOps or have it in pockets but find it difficult to scale up to an enterprise-wide implementation.

Integration solutions are essential to most enterprises because different teams use different tools. A good integration solution is crucial to the rapid, high-quality development that modern companies demand. Security is an essential element in the integration process where thousands of applications are communicating with each other. Every day new threats and vulnerabilities are created, and you'll find yourself racing against the clock to patch them.
What if your integration tool injects security vulnerabilities? What if your integration tool creates minor changes that make your applications less secure? What if your integration tool has security vulnerabilities of its own?
