Trend #2: DevOps will enable further advances in programmable infrastructure/Infrastructure as a Code.

The idea of automating things is not new, but the ability to provision infrastructure easily and seamlessly is. As DevOps and the open-source software movement is more readily accepted, infrastructure can be programmed so that teams can develop the software and operate its environment simultaneously. Expect that companies will continue to push more agile, software-based methods when it comes to infrastructure operations.

TIP: In the past, it was fair to think about automation after a product was developed. Now, businesses should prioritize automation considerations from the onset, and integrate it as part of the initial development phase.

DevOps – a cultural and professional IT movement focused on changing the mindset of how organizations function – will no doubt make a significant impact across many companies this year. Whether it is more stable operating environments, faster delivery of product features, quicker resolution of problems, or continuous software delivery, DevOps can benefit a company's product lifecycle, its competitive advantage, and its ability to more quickly meet customer needs.

Yet for all of its benefits, DevOps is still in its early phases, because it's about making a significant cultural shift in how an organization works – and what tools it uses to improve its products. Rajesh Sethu, director of DevOps at Replicon, identifies five key trends organizations should watch in 2016, as well as tips on how these trends should be used to ensure DevOps success in your business.
