Developers’ satisfaction increases productivity and product deployment. It’s all-official and on the record, according to a study cited by www.developer-tech.com. So if you’re a company operating in software providence services, you might find the following study useful, not only for personnel recruiting, but also for your developer personnel satisfaction and workflow efficiency.
There’s a clear connection between DevOps and developer job satisfaction – according to findings, published in April this year: developers working within mature DevOps practices are 1.5 times more likely to enjoy their work and 1.6 times more willing to recommend their employer to other fellow developer prospects.
Mature practices boost code deployment in 2020, as compared to 2019
The study cited by the afore mentioned website reveals that development velocity is quickly gaining momentum, with 55% of developers deploying code to production once every week at a minimum – a 3% surge to last year’s standings. Operations velocity also increased as compared to 2019.
The major differences in investment priorities between mature and immature solutions can be found across Container Security, with mature practices investing 2.2 times more than immature practices.
Security applications: there’s room for improvement
Here’s one other interesting finding brought out by the study: 47% of developers acknowledged that they didn’t invest in security despite its importance.
The study also shows developer teams would rather invest in automated security tools, including open source governance (44%), web application firewalls (59%), and intrusion detection (42%).
