“We’re are all human. We’re pets, not cattle. And we’re all different.” — Sam Fell, VP Marketing at Electric Cloud. Sam’s words echoed throughout conversations at the DevOps Enterprise Summit in Las Vegas, where Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report Survey had just been announced.

As different human beings in different roles across different organizations undergoing different transformations, where do we begin in bridging a skills gap that has been widening since DevOps became DevOps?

DevOps Institute partnered with sponsors Electric Cloud and CloudBees to answer that question, among many others, in a data-backed, comprehensive, tangible way — Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report Survey is a qualitative response to the industry-wide dilemma of where both practitioners and leaders should concentrate their individual and organizational upskilling energy.

As mentioned by DevOps Institute CEO Jayne Groll in her announcement at CloudBees’ DevOps World in Nice, France, “We can’t do this without you.” The value of the resulting report will only be as meaningful as the data collected from the global community. If 20 people from any organization complete the Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report Survey, DevOps Institute will provide an organizational snapshot at no cost.
