Have your say in the largest survey on Database DevOps


December 18, 2020, update:

Thank you to the thousands of IT professionals who responded to our survey. It’s now closed and we’re busy analyzing the data to produce the 2021 State of Database DevOps Report – the fifth in the series of annual reports. We’ll be publishing it early in 2021, so keep an eye on our social channels. This promises to be the most informative report yet, with findings that reflect the impact of the current pandemic, as well as trending data.

Every year since 2016 we’ve surveyed the global tech community and published the State of Database DevOps, a research report into the practices around DevOps and database development. Since its inception, more than 5,000 IT professionals have contributed to it, and its insights have been featured in key industry publications such as ZDnet, Computer Weekly, The New Stack and many more.

It’s been fascinating to witness the emergence of DevOps, from 2016 when only about 30% of respondents said they had adopted it to 2020, when 68% said they have now introduced DevOps to at least some projects.

The impact on the increased adoption of DevOps is also evident in database development with 46% of respondents in 2020 saying they have automated database deployments versus only 21% in 2017.

What’s changed during this momentous year?

We’re curious to see how those numbers have evolved this year. 2021 will mark the fifth edition of the report, at a time when most IT professionals and organizations have been affected in some way by the global pandemic. Will, for example, the drivers for automating the delivery of database changes shift again?

This year, we’ll continue to research and share how database development practices are evolving, as well as exploring the impact of DevOps on the resilience of the teams and data during these unprecedented times.

That said, we’re delighted to invite you to take part to the 2021 State of Database DevOps survey, which is now open!

Complete the survey and you’ll receive an advance preview of the final report with exclusive content, and also be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a $500 Amazon voucher.

Plus, for each submission we receive this year, Redgate will donate $1 to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The State of Database DevOps survey will run until midnight GMT on December 15, so have your say on DevOps and database DevOps by starting the survey here!
