A well-recognized IT skills gap is slowing the speed of transformation for both organizations and individuals. Enterprises want to hire and retain professionals with T-shaped skill sets, trained across a range of disciplines. People want to expand their skills portfolios to support their career goals. But which skills are considered essential and how do you know? In 2018, the DevOps Institute fielded the Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Survey with responses by 1,600 individuals from various geographies, company sizes, and roles. Jayne Groll, CEO of the DevOps Institute, provides an overview of the key findings of the report, including a breakdown of the specific skills that were considered “must have”, “nice to have”, and “not important” across Process, Functional, Technical, and Soft Skill Categories. The presentation also includes a look at respondents’ DevOps adoption, topologies, hiring plans, and talent challenges.
