DevOps predictions for 2022

Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Yoav Landman, Co-Founder, and CTO of JFrog shares his DevOps predictions for 2022, why there will be a learning curve with low-code/no-code solutions and security, how CISOs will take control of the software supply chain, how the Metaverse will support hybrid work models, and much more.

Yoav Landman, Co-Founder, and CTO of JFrog created Artifactory after 7 years as a senior consultant with AlphaCSP. He has held several senior technical roles with Attunity, Verve, and Sausage. Yoav holds a Master of Computing degree from RMIT University and a BA in Law (LLB) from Haifa University.

Low-Code/No-Code, Metaverse, and DevOps predictions for 2022

Landman shares his predictions for 2022, about Low-Code/No-Code Solutions, DevOps, the Metaverse, and a lot more.

Low-code and no-code programming tools have gained popularity because they allow everyday business users with little or no coding experience to create apps that meet their needs. But one thing that’s often overlooked when discussing these tools is security, if a vulnerability shows up in one piece of code, that vulnerability will be present each time that code is deployed. Similar to when serverless applications were on the rise and people didn't know how to securely deploy them, I predict there will be a similar learning curve with low-code and no-code solutions.

CISOs Will Continue to Take Control of Their Software Supply Chain

As we've witnessed over the past year-plus, deteriorations of the software supply chain can quickly impact profitability due to increased costs. In 2022, open-source supply chain security will take hold as organizations rally around new ways to share and consumer knowledge in a digestible way. The idea is to democratize security testing and information, which requires more collaboration and communication. In this vein, JFrog and others are working to establish a “ranking” for security packages and tools to help foster this democratization process.

In addition, CISOs will increasingly leverage tools that create a full chain of custody for software releases and automate the discovery and visibility of security issues along the software supply chain. Tools that reduce friction during the software release process keep systems running properly and, more importantly, ensure end-users are happy.

The Metaverse Will Further Support Hybrid Work Models

The global pandemic accelerated work-from-home models out of necessity, and nearly two years later, organizations are realizing that remote and hybrid work models are actually good for business. As talk about metaverses rises, there is an opportunity to establish one for the DevOps community, essentially a free and open exchange of information such as software package ratings and the democratization of current security practices. This domain is currently immature, but I expect the industry will soon begin to shift in this direction to improve collaboration as remote work remains prominent. 

Remote work isn’t going away, more and more companies will turn to global workforces as they realize that local workers aren't always enough. Working remotely is, in fact, a new reality, and savvy businesses are capitalizing by attracting top talent in markets where they haven't previously had a presence, and this trend will continue.

DevSecOps Will Merge With App Development

In 2022 we’ll continue to see the push towards the integration of DevSecOps with product and enterprise application development. This will be driven by developers who recognize critical security issues, and in order to address those issues, they’ll need to have the right tools. In today's modern world, just about every organization needs security tools to flag vulnerabilities with prescriptive steps to solve them. Security threats will continue to be a serious risk, not only within software development but also in enterprise infrastructure. Defining the role of people and processes versus technology alone will help to enable more far-reaching collaboration.
