The field of Mobile DevOps Engineering, having etched ‘DevOps Engineer’ as the most desired job title in 2021, is leading the digital transformation wave. As companies strive to meet customer expectations, the demand for Mobile DevOps Engineers who can expedite deployment processes is escalating.
Presently, mobile is a primary source of revenue with about 33% of American retailers, 42% of small businesses, and 55% of millennial-owned businesses owning at least one app. This dependency has skyrocketed the need for faster and faultless mobile deployment. It is evidenced by a whopping 60% of users deleting an app after one performance issue and 80% discarding after continuous problems.
Interestingly, developers are doubling their code release speed, yet they cite a lack of automation as a hurdle. Hence, tools that assist in continuous integration and deployment are witnessing a rise in demand. Approximately one in five developers now leverage these tools, attributing to their efficiency benefits such as reduced time-to-market, affirmed deliverable quality, and positive organizational impact.Barnabas Birmacher, CEO and Co-Founder of Bitrise, reinforces, “Being mobile-first means companies are constantly optimizing their mobile offerings.” Given the current digital climate, prioritizing Mobile DevOps promises to amplify job opportunities, stimulate demand, and uplift the quality of deliverables.
