The need for businesses to embrace digital transformation has seen a disruptive shift in how software is developed, deployed and used, making it ever so important to ship code faster without compromising quality and security. The International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that over the next 3-4 years:
- 35% of new apps produced by means of command line scripting or coding will be cloud native by 2022
- Daily deployments to production will increase from 3% to 40% by 2023
- 80% of apps will be deployed on containers by 2024
