DevOps Institute Opens Upskilling 2021: Enterprise DevOps Skills Survey

The third annual survey aims to gather data on global DevOps skillsets and hiring trends to reshape the future of DevOps Humans

DevOps Institute, a global member-based association for advancing the human elements of DevOps, today announced the launch of the “Upskilling 2021: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report” community survey. The Upskilling 2021: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report will examine DevOps career trends, hiring challenges, and skillset requirements that have emerged in the past year. It is the only vendor-neutral survey of its kind.

“The Upskilling 2020 report revealed that DevOps transformation is still very difficult for over half of survey respondents,” said Jayne Groll, CEO of DevOps Institute. “It also highlighted the need for Human Transformation as we learned that finding and attracting skilled DevOps Humans is a top challenge. As we enter the third year of the upskilling report during a global pandemic, it is more important than ever to gather deeper insights around these trends and skillset requirements to help create a more clear path to DevOps transformation success. We also need to understand new business challenges and opportunities around remote work as the ‘new normal’ starts to reveal itself.”

The 2021 survey focuses on critical DevOps skills required for modern software delivery environments. Further, it examines how these skillsets have changed as remote work and digital footprints drive business transformation. By exploring the role of the “E-shaped” DevOps professional, survey data will demonstrate how DevOps Humans must up-skill, up-knowledge and up-perform to inspire DevOps humans to boost their career.

“As the 2021 survey evolves, it is essential to capture an increasingly diverse representation of data around critical DevOps skillsets,” said Eveline Oehrlich, chief research director at DevOps Institute. “The more inclusive data we have, the better we can understand how DevOps talents need to be reshaped in the future to help companies leverage technology to be agile in the face of disruption, and to create the new digitally enabled business models for a new normal. We anticipate that skills categories like process and knowledge skills, human skills and automation skills will remain high-value, but we may see a shift in how they rank with the advent of remote work in 2020.”

The Upskilling 2021: Enterprise DevOps Skills survey is active through December 14, 2020, and the third annual report will be published in early 2021.
