DevOps implementation is now widespread in Singapore, according to a new global study commissioned by CA Technologies.
71% of organisations in the nation have adopted some aspects of DevOps, slightly above the Asia Pacific and Japan average of 69%.
Almost all (91%) of the respondents said that Singapore firms' high demand for DevOps is to create new and innovative customer experiences. The same percentage said it is driven by rapid time to value from development effort, and 88 percent cited the reason as greater efficiency and lower costs within IT.
"Businesses are beginning to understand that a flourishing DevOps practice is now fundamental if they wish to thrive in today's application economy," said Ashok Vasan, Vice President, Application Delivery, Asia Pacific & Japan, CA Technologies.
The Singapore firms recognise what they have to do in order to maximise DevOps effectiveness. However, only 10% of DevOps practitioners in Singapore had actually completed these requirements and reached advanced levels of adoption.
Few factors crucial to assembling a successful DevOps practice are a well-defined DevOps strategy and objectives, right infrastructure and tooling, cross functional IT processes, and compliance measures.
The survey also found that in the Asia Pacific region, compared to those who have not implemented DevOps, advanced DevOps adopters were three times more likely to have seen progress on market share.
