DevOps in Switzerland 2018 Study

Are Swiss companies DevOps ready?
Two years after our first check on DevOps in Switzerland, it is time to look more closely on the current state and adoption of DevOps. We are conducting a study on the state of DevOps in Switzerland 2018. With this study, we want to examine how you and your company understand DevOps and whether you are already working with DevOps principles. The current state of DevOps, reasons for and against an introduction of the DevOps philosophy and where you think the trend is going.


The survey is open until November 12, 2018 and may of course be shared, forwarded and retweeted with others. You only need about 10 minutes. Click here for the survey and enjoy!

Why should you take part?

We will send each survey participant a (of course anonymised) report ‘DevOps in Switzerland 2018′ upon request. You will be asked for your email address at the end of the survey. Help us determine the current state of DevOps in Switzerland!

What is DevOps?

DevOps is not a fixed term and is often understood differently. Hiring a DevOps engineer does not automatically turn a company into a DevOps organization. Nor is DevOps synonymous with the use of certain tools or software. DevOps can not be ‘bought’ and DevOps is not a detached team within the organization. The cultural aspect should not be underestimated either – if corporate culture is not even the most important reason for a functioning DevOps organization.
Donovan Brown of Microsoft defines DevOps as follows: ‘DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to our end users.’
The idea behind DevOps is that people work together in harmony and use processes and techniques to continuously benefit the end customer.

Our understanding of DevOps

DevOps is a common term, but unfortunately as vague as ‘Cloud’: Although everyone knows that he wants it or needs it and yet it is not something that you can just order and get delivered the next day.
Our understanding of DevOps is the interdisciplinary cooperation between developers and operations of software in order to use applications quickly and systematically. Our article “What is DevOps – what does VSHN do?” (in German) explains our understanding of DevOps.

What do you think of DevOps? How do you apply DevOps in your company?

Take part in our study and tell us about your experience with DevOps and what role DevOps plays in your business.

We are very excited to see the results of the study. Thank you for the participation!
