Ravello Systems Survey Indicates Enterprise Frustration With Dev/Test Environments And Processes

Today, Ravello Systems revealed the results of a survey that illustrates the infancy of DevOps, particularly as it pertains to development and testing environments. The survey of 278 IT professionals identified a widespread feeling that dev environments are too costly and complex to create and evince significant differences between dev/test and production environments. Customers are using public clouds for dev/test, but there remains a necessity to accelerate and streamline the integration between development and production. Overall, the survey points to the way in which organizations are turning to the public cloud as a use case for dev/test but are nevertheless struggling to implement their processes with the desired degree of robustness and agility.
