The 2018 State of DevOps Survey. Don’t just wait for it. Be a part of it.

The annual State of DevOps Survey from DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) has become a valued part of the IT information landscape. Each year, it identifies the issues that matter the most to IT professionals, and unlocks new findings to help improve the resource management, productivity and quality of IT teams.

There’s an additional reason to be a part of the 2018 Accelerate State of DevOps Survey because Redgate is a gold sponsor. As part of our ongoing initiative to enable and ease the journey to database DevOps, we’ve been working with DORA to shape the questions in the survey about understanding the impact of databases on DevOps.

You can help us by taking part in the survey which will also cover areas like IaaS and PaaS, monitoring, testing, workflows, culture, security, and reliability.

As Dr Nicole Forsgren, founder and CEO of DORA, says: “Our goal is to help organizations understand how they can be high performers. This year’s survey builds on the last four years of work to give us the most comprehensive view of IT impacts on the industry yet.”

Your participation can help reveal what the true state of DevOps is, the issues companies like yours really face when implementing it, and where the database fits into the picture. That, in turn, will help us in the future development of the Redgate tools that help companies introduce database DevOps.

There’s another reward as well

DevOps is evolving rapidly, with increasing expectations on delivery teams, compliance pressures on organizations, and new technologies and competitors emerging all the time.

Participating in the survey will give everyone a better understanding of the current position of DevOps – and you’ll also be entered in a prize draw with a chance to win:

  • One of two $500 gift cards (VISA)
  • An iPad Pro
  • A ticket to the DevOps Enterprise Summit (in London or Las Vegas)
  • One of five IT Revolution Press book bundles

The survey launched two weeks ago and closes on Friday, 8 June, so make some time over the next few days and make sure you have a part to play in it.
