The survey, titled "AI-Augmented DevOps: The Next Frontier", examined the AI augmentation in DevOps environments. The results found that the majority of organisations value AI-augmented DevOps and recognise its potential to fuel innovation and impact business.

Over 65 per cent of respondents thought AI-augmented testing is particularly well suited for functional testing. Respondents also noted UI testing, unit testing, and performance testing as areas of promise for the application of AI-based technology.

According to Mav Turner, vice president, product at Tricentis, the survey results confirm that AI-augmented DevOps "lives up to the hype" and is here to stay.


"As organisations mature their DevOps process, they will be looking for more opportunities to implement AI-augmented solutions to streamline the entire DevOps pipeline, reducing overall monitoring and testing time.

"This will ultimately accelerate releases and free up valuable resources to focus on innovation and business impact," Turner says.

Respondents also expressed that introducing AI into the DevOps process has the potential to alleviate major business and technical pain points, including making it easier for junior employees to perform more complicated tasks, reducing costs, increasing release frequency, and more.

"AI has the potential to positively impact DevOps processes, and we found that mature DevOps teams are already achieving benefits."

The recent study also demonstrates that organisations across the globe at all stages of DevOps maturity believe that AI-augmented technology will help them manage the volume and complexity of software releases, Mike Rothman, chief strategy officer and GM at Techstrong Research added, in order to improve code quality and stay competitive in today’s fast-paced market.

The Tricentis findings are based on a survey conducted in collaboration with Techstrong Research. The survey was fielded in May and June of 2022 and yielded responses from 2,670 DevOps practitioners, managers, and executives in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific from small, mid-size, and enterprise organisations.
