More than a decade ago “DevOps” was born and established itself. But how will DevOps evolve in the 20s?

Here, in loose succession, we provide an insight into DevOps trends that we are encountering with increasing frequency.

DevSecOps und Cloud Native Development

Today, learn about the importance of DevSecOps and Cloud Native Development.


DevOps has greatly shortened release cycles. On the other hand, there are still the lengthy security tests in many cases. This means that not every release can be tested as intensively as would actually be necessary. As a result, product security suffers and vulnerabilities are identified and remedied too late.

DevSecOps aims to integrate “security” into application development. Every part of the development, i.e. the teams as well as the tools and platforms used, play their part in maintaining security. Vulnerabilities are thus to be identified and contained at an early stage. Risks decrease. Development teams are supported by the CISO and/or the security team.

New technologies help to make DevSecOps efficient. Approaches here range from automated security tests, serverless and cloud-native technologies to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies.

Cloud Native Development

Cloud Native Development can most aptly be described as “developing applications in the cloud for the cloud”.

In addition to the operation of applications in the cloud, the entire development environment, i.e. tools, storage, security, monitoring, identity and access management, is moved to the cloud.

This approach is entirely in line with DevOps. It creates a continuous and automated deployment and delivery pipeline. Development and operations use the same platform and tools. No need for a local (on premises) solution.

One challenge of Cloud Native is to remain independent of the cloud technology of the big tech corporations to avoid vendor lock-in. Maximum portability of components through microservices and containers and a multi-cloud strategy can help remain independent.
