The DevOps Institute fielded the “UpSkilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report” to help the IT community and the community as a whole understand what new skills IT practitioners should develop as either deep or general knowledge to meet the growing demand for well-balanced “T-shaped” professionals. T-shaped individuals supplement their depth of specific knowledge (the deep stem of the T) with a wide range of general knowledge (the general top of the T). The need for T-shaped talent is being driven by the increas- ing requirement for speed, agility and quality software from the business.
The report leveraged a sample size of professionals representing enterprises worldwide. We organized the skills into the following five focus areas: process skills, soft skills, functional skills, technical skills and automation tool skills. The skill priority results are posted in the context of all survey takers—both the hiring leaders as well as the individual contributors.
Additionally, a variety of attributes are included that provide insight into the demographics of the survey respondents, such as industry, revenue, function and job title. From the survey we understand that the importance of crucial skill categories differs significantly by role, so we have created the following groups and the respective results:
Entire sample size includes all respondents regardless of their role, function, company size and DevOps organizational model.
