Serverless Computing for DevOps and Business: EMA Top 3 Report and Decision Guide for Serverless Technologies

The EMA Top 3 Report and Decision Guide for Serverless Technologies provides decision makers with a shortlist of products and, just as importantly, with a clear understanding of the opportunities and pitfalls of serverless application environments.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it has released a new report titled “Serverless Computing for DevOps and Business: EMA Top 3 Report and Decision Guide for Serverless Technologies” authored by Torsten Volk, EMA’s managing research director of containers, DevOps, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. EMA selects its Top 3 products based on end-user research, market analysis, technical product reviews, and expert interviews to provide enterprise customers with pragmatic guidance to optimally benefit from serverless technologies.

“EMA Top 3 products in the serverless space need to make it simple for developers, DevOps engineers, and administrators to build, test, deploy, and operate modern distributed applications in a simple manner,” says Volk. “This report provides decision makers with a shortlist of products and, just as importantly, with a clear understanding of the opportunities and pitfalls of serverless application environments.”

This new market guide identifies and profiles the top enterprise software products addressing the ten most critical challenges and pain points enterprises typically encounter when adopting serverless technologies. The profiles of these top products—recognized as EMA Top 3 Award winners— include screenshots and descriptions from EMA analysts exploring specific use cases. The guide also provides readers with facts about adoption status, pain points, and future priorities in serverless computing.

Some of the data points this research sheds light on are as follows:

  • Between 2015 and 2019 serverless technologies grew by a CAGR of 250%
  • Developers spend 30% of their time recreating existing code
  • Developers spend an estimated 25% of their time on non-development tasks
  • IT operators spend approximately 55% of their time on repetitive tasks

“Of course enterprises want to reduce development and operations costs, but they are often uncertain of the risk of adopting a serverless model,” says Professor Jens Soeldner, managing partner at Soeldner Consult. “This report provides pragmatic guidance for these customers to lower their risk of stepping into the serverless ‘unknown’ by learning from their peers.”

In addition to the research report, EMA launched the accompanying EMA Top 3 website for serverless technologies to deliver an ongoing stream of serverless-related research content aimed to provide readers with the latest research, opinions, and product information to harness serverless technologies for their business.
