CRN takes a look at a sampling of some of the coolest DevOps tools so far this year.
From Portworx, a tool to store and manage data for Kubernetes projects, to Netsparker, which provides a way to detect vulnerabilities and provide remediation support for web application developers, CRN has assembled a list of tools from tech giants and startups that aim to improve organizations’ development operations.
Although “DevOps” as a term may be little more than 10 years old, the variety of tools hitting the marketplace to further the combined practices of development and operations shows no slow down.
And the more organizations adopt DevOps practices, the more need for providers of platform, infrastructure and system infrastructure software as a service, according to the International Data Corp.
IDC said the worldwide DevOps software tools market saw strong double-digit growth in 2019 and totaled $8.5 billion in sales. It predicted slowed growth, in the single digits, in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with stronger growth in 2022 and 2023.
And according to The NPD Group, which tracks monthly technology sales-out information from the largest IT distributors and resellers across North America, security software revenue in the B2B channel grew 21% compared to Q1 2020. NPD also expects continued growth as individuals return to work and businesses focus on digital transformation and security.
