5 Cloud & DevOps Trends to Fuel Your Tech Roadmap in 2023

5 Cloud & DevOps Trends to Fuel Your Tech Roadmap in 2023

With the ever-increasing pace of advancements in cloud computing, DevOps transformation, and digitalization, it’s hard to stay on top of the latest trends. To help you succeed in 2023 and beyond, we’ve asked a few leading technology experts from Wizeline to share their visions for the future of cloud computing and DevOps. 

This collection of 2023 cloud and DevOps trends and predictions will help kick your imagination into high gear and give you fuel to supercharge your technology roadmap. Dive in!

Serverless Computing

Cloud-native applications take advantage of new APIs, technologies, and infrastructure that enable them to be deployed quickly and efficiently. Serverless architectures are part of that trend. The serverless architecture market size exceeded $7B in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 20% from 2021 to 2027.

In 2023, we’ll see consolidation in cloud offerings. The age of explosive growth will end, and efficiency and consolidation of services will become the norm. Many small cloud providers will disappear or become very niche. At the same time, the big players will strengthen their offerings. A significant part of that strength will be serverless offerings.

Serverless architecture offerings keep gaining ground. Development tools and frameworks for serverless mature and gain more traction, making serverless architectures easier and more productive.

Alternative Staffing Models to Keep Your Cloud Roadmap on Track

Cloud computing changes staffing requirements. Most companies are under the assumption that standard IT knowledge, skills, and abilities are a significant requirement to successfully operate cloud adoption. However, cloud service and delivery models require different acquisition, provision, consumption, and audit approaches. Finding qualified employees is a challenge for most companies. Therefore companies are looking to expand their service partnerships to fill gaps in their organizational composition.

Organizations still have roles to fill, even with economic uncertainty, to meet their business objectives. Cloud adoption requires skills that IT staff may not yet have. However, companies still want to limit the expansion of full-time employees until they are sure the economy will stay healthy. As a result, they will embrace nontraditional service providers like Wizeline to fill gaps in the near term.

Platform Engineering

The platform engineering concept is quickly growing within organizations. These teams define standards and reference architectures/implementations to speed up product development by using development best practices, continuous integration/delivery reusable pipelines, and automation of workload deployment in various platforms, among other things.

Cloud providers will need to keep up with this trend and provide services that enable Platform Engineering at large scale and different use cases easing the adoption of new services and moving between service or cloud providers. For example, declarative APIs for workload deployment and providing CI/CD services compatible with the standards in the market.

AI and Machine Learning in DevOps

Companies are leveraging model rendering and data analytics to better predict which actions or countermeasures could be deployed in case of failure and optimize their operation costs. Artificial intelligence and machine learning usage in DevOps are the newest addition to DevOps’ best practices through predictive analytics and monitoring.

The latest observability and logs aggregation tools/platforms are now focusing on adding features such as predictive analytics, which helps companies/operators be prepared for an upcoming chaotic failure. Big DevOps platform tools will be adopting this trend quickly, as has already been done by Splunk, Datadog, and Appdynamics.

The Continued Emergence of DevSecOps 

The shift from DevOps to DevSecOps is predicted to gain vast momentum in an era in which most IT giants have struggled with damaging cyberattacks. Companies are implementing more security controllers and best practices early in their application-building process to create new security and quality gates to detect and fix security flaws early in their process and code.

Emerging DevSecOps will be the answer to ward off cyberattacks by adopting best security practices in the application-building lifecycle. Major cloud vendors are now coming up with new security and quality gates by introducing cloud-native security and third-party vendors. Companies will have to move away from the traditional way of securing their code and infrastructure in the upcoming years.
