Predictions Around DevOps and High-Hype Technologies in 2019

As 2018 draws to a close, 2019 is shaping up to be a historic year for software development and technologies. Fueled by relatively new emerging concepts, like artificial intelligence and blockchain, and backed by development strategies, such as DevOps, we at Exadel expect 2019 to be an amazing year to be in the IT field.

So as we get ready for a great year, we're taking a look at a couple of predictions set to shape the world of IT organizations for the coming 12 months.

1) Emphasis on DevOps Will Grow to New Heights

DevOps as a development strategy has continued to ascend to new levels - but in 2019, we expect to see it rise to unprecedented heights. Part of this is due to a continued growth in available technologies and options for deployment. There was a time in the not-so-distant past where organizations were quite limited by what tools were available to help fuel their DevOps activities. In 2019, the number of tools that can help support organizations will only continue to grow and the flexibility of DevOps will continue to expand with these burgeoning technologies.

In 2019, we also expect to see a continued expansion of the idea of DevOps-as-a-Service. It can be difficult for an organization that either doesn't have many developers or perhaps doesn't have the right skill sets to explore DevOps. But more organizations, such as Exadel, are creating DevOps-as-a-Service models to help organizations leverage this strategy even when they may not have the requisite internal resources.

2) Increased Consolidation Around "High-Hype" Technologies

2018 was a huge year for emerging technologies, specifically blockchain and artificial intelligence. As it stands currently, we see that there is actually more hype than usage, particularly when it comes to blockchain. With this in mind, we expect to see some consolidation around the usage of blockchain and particularly blockchain solutions. Artificial intelligence will be less impacted, and we actually do expect to see increased usage of AI across companies of all sizes and verticals.

Overall, we see this as a good thing as it will ultimately make life easier for those who want to use blockchain or AI. By narrowing the range of available choices and having a consolidation of technologies, it will greatly simplify the process of deploying blockchain or AI in your application. So even though there will be perhaps fewer technologies available, the technologies on the market will have more capabilities.
