IDC Market Glance: DevOps Application Life-Cycle Management, 4Q18 — Optimizing Cross-Platform Quality for Digital Transformation

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

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Glance gives 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. 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 IDC Market Glance identifies the current process and vendor landscape for DevOps ALM that includes areas such as planning, development, test/quality, ALM/PLM for IoT, delivery, and orchestration enabled by collaboration.

"Companies are modernizing and evolving traditional approaches to agile ALM as part of strategic DevOps initiatives," said Melinda Ballou, research director for IDC's Agile ALM, Quality and Portfolio Strategies service. "Increasingly, organizations must coordinate initiatives across a range of roles and cultures and deploy across a plethora of platforms with widely varying form factors. Automation — typically in the cloud — combined with agile process change can help drive and then sustain the transition to DevOps — and, combining quality with security, to DevSecOps. In addition, we see machine learning playing a role to help make ALM data, patterns, and metrics visible, pragmatic, and actionable. Strategic commitment to DevOps is enabled by adoption of DevOps ALM, as well as quality software creation demanded by digital transformation."
