To succeed in DevOps these days, go hybrid

DevOps is not just a technical undertaking, it’s a business proposition. This calls for hybrid skills that enable a more holistic view of the entire software development and deployment process. With a majority of enterprises (52%) intending to ramp up their recruiting of DevOps skills. close to two-thirds, 65%, reported having difficulties with finding these combinations of skills.

That’s the takeaway from a survey of 1,260 IT managers by the DevOps Institute, which finds process skills and knowledge are now the top skills sought for DevOps initiatives, surpassing automation skills, the leading skill sought in last year’s survey. In addition, DevOps adoption, Agile, and site reliability engineering (SRE) all have gained percentages as must-have skills. 

In the first stage of DevOps adoption, “users were learning about the technology and its potential benefits and implementation difficulties,” the survey’s authors point out. “The next logical stage is to establish a process and rules through which the technology will be used.”  

The DevOps journey is still very difficult for more than 50% of respondents. “DevOps is a fundamental change in the traditional structure of IT. It not only represents the adoption of new technology, but also an organizational transformation challenge with all that it implies with the ‘evangelization of the existing responsibility silos. I certainly may be perceived as threatening for several structures which are comfortable in the existing organizational model.”

DevOps topologies primarily used to today are a huge challenge. The survey’s authors identified three distinct models: The one that is leveraged the most is the DevOps team silo or the DevOps advocacy model where there is a separate DevOps team between dev and ops. The second most-used mode is the DevOps collaboration model where Develops is everyone’s job, and the third most-deployed team model is that of a DevOps tool team where the DevOps team is responsible for the tooling required.  

Enterprises increasingly seek hybrid skill sets to move forward with DevOps, the survey shows. “The ideal candidates for a DevOps role at this stage demand a holistic view and understanding of issues face by developers, ops teams, and the possibilities of automation.” That’s because “human, process, knowledge and automation skills are equally important.”  The hybrid DevOps specialists leverages skills from a wide area of fields which range from technology skills such as cloud infrastructure, to functional skills such as IT operations, to processes and framework skills such as SRE or Agile.”
