Human transformation is essential for digital transformation. The key differentiator seems to be the efficient flow of people, processes, and automation, resulting in a positive culture in difficult times. For the fourth  year, DevOps Institute has proudly fielded the Upskilling IT survey to understand which skills are considered “must-have,” “nice-to-have,” and “optional.” This year reinforced the need to invest in and update our humans with the same enthusiasm as we do our automation. This post will explore key DevOps insights from the 2021 Upskilling IT report.

The demand for faster, secure, quality digital services and applications to continue to increase customers, clients, or patients’ experience puts a spotlight on existing application delivery and IT operations teams. They need to ensure that their work is in lockstep to support the digital transformation of their organization. This has driven the adoption of DevOps and some other operating models and will continue to do so.

Our hope is that the Upskilling IT 2022 Report is a catalyst for action. The “next normal” will require an army of skilled IT talent to succeed. 

We’re sharing some key DevOps insights from last year’s report in this infographic.

Here are a few highlights from the list:

  • DevOps teams stay the same or keep expanding even during the pandemic.
  • DevOps team members are recruited from a variety of areas.
  • The must-have skill domains have slightly shifted.
  • The DevOps team is a multi-disciplined empowered team.
  • Check out the infographic below for more details.
