2013 Application Release Trends


Over the past several months, XebiaLabs conducted a survey to unveil the drivers behind changes in the Application Release process and the results are in. The overarching results reveal organizations regard their current Application Release processes as deficient and are actively seeking to automate “the last mile” of their release process as they look to automate their enterprise application release management to a greater degree. The survey also shows that organizations are actively looking to implement solutions that help them move away from expensive, error-prone “big bang” releases and towards a Continuous Delivery approach. Some of the other key highlights included:

  • 75% of respondents give their deployment process a failing grade.
  • Deployments fail 10-30% of the time.
  • 48% say inconsistency across their environment and applications is their biggest challenge in the deployment process—followed by dependency on expert resources (40%) and processes that move too slowly (38%).
