GitLab Survey Reflects Shifting Roles in DevSecOps


Ops professionals are spending more time managing cloud services

DevOps roles continue to shift with devs taking on operations jobs, and operations professionals focusing more on cloud management, according to the recent GitLab 2022

Global DevSecOps Survey.

The survey asked Ops pros about their primary responsibilities, with the following results:

  • 54% manage hardware infrastructure “all or most of the time,” and 32% manage hardware infrastructure “sometimes.”
  • 52% manage cloud services “all or most of the time,” and 31% manage cloud services “sometimes.”

A majority of respondents also reported spending between one quarter to half of their time managing audit and compliance responsibilities; however, nearly 25% of Ops pros said they spend “between half and three-quarters of their time dealing with audit and compliance.” Other tasks include toolchain maintenance, automation, and DevOps coaching.

Other findings indicate that:

  • 70% of DevOps teams surveyed release code continuously, once a day, or every few days, which is up 11% from 2021.
  • 68% of teams said software development lifecycle was either completely or mostly automated, up 13% from last year.
  • 47% of teams have full test automation, which is nearly double the number reported in 2021.
