Study Finds Only 42% of Applications on Kubernetes Successfully Make it to Production

D2iQ, provider of the leading independent Kubernetes platform built to power smarter Day 2 operations, announced the results from its second annual Kubernetes-focused survey of IT decision makers and developers, Kubernetes in the Enterprise Annual ReportProduction Deployments Increase, but Challenges Persist. The study found that while 75% of organizations are using Kubernetes in production or pre-production environments, 100% of those organizations agree that Kubernetes deployments come with challenges. This is evidenced as only 42% of organizations claim that all applications running on Kubernetes successfully made it to Day 2 environments.

Kubernetes has become the technology of choice to power enterprise cloud native journeys, and organizations are expanding their use of Kubernetes to support both innovation-driven initiatives and critical workloads. According to the survey, 36% of senior IT decision makers successfully running applications on Kubernetes in Day 2 operations say it is critical to the long-term success of their company. Rapid digital transformations are also fueling massive growth in data volumes, with 43% of respondents citing data analytics or machine learning as the most popular Kubernetes workload.

The study also demonstrates the positive impact Kubernetes has on the professional development of developers and engineers. 41% of developers say Kubernetes makes them really excited to come to work every day and that it brings their entire IT team together.
