The Key Benefits of Building High-Performance Engineering Organizations

In the current shift towards cloud native environments, it is crucial to prioritize developer experience for business success. Focusing on the developer experience is now a top priority for businesses: 58% of software engineering leaders report that developer experience is “very” or “extremely” critical to C-suite at their organizations and the need to improve developer experience is driving technology adoption.

    In the current shift towards cloud native environments, it is crucial to prioritize developer experience for business success.

    Focusing on the developer experience is now a top priority for businesses:

    58% of software engineering leaders report that developer experience is “very” or “extremely” critical to C-suite at their organizations and the need to improve developer experience is driving technology adoption.


    In recent years, containerization, microservices and Kubernetes have been among the leading technologies on organizations' radar. Kubernetes has become the de facto orchestration platform for deploying and managing containerized applications.

    5.6 million Developers using Kubernetes worldwide represent 31% of all backend developers.

    By 2022, both corporate consultancies and tech outlets declared that Kubernetes had "crossed the chasm" into mainstream enterprise adoption.


    According to the 2022 CNCF Annual Survey, not only is Kubernetes adoption increasing by leaps and bounds, it's more common in larger organizations and is truly global (Africa leads the world in Kubernetes use in production, followed by Europe and North America). Moreover, Kubernetes is "going under the hood", according to the report, and becoming less visible, enabling developers to do their work without having to know as much about underlying technologies.

    Kubernetes and the promise of speed and flexibility

    Kubernetes is a maturing technology, as evidenced by the upward adoption trend. But as the technology and the number of users grows, its expansion shines a light on another theme that is gaining traction: the importance of the developer experience. Cloud native technologies and Kubernetes gained popularity by promising to help developers deliver software and applications faster. Now organizations can test that promise by helping developers make the most of what cloud native can do for them.


    Inevitably, though, it has not been quite as straightforward as that. Developers have in many cases, particularly before Kubernetes hit the mainstream, taken on the full responsibility for coding, shipping and running their services. While this works for a fraction of organizations, it isn't ideal for the 99% of developers who want to know enough to get their job done and do not necessarily want to be Kubernetes experts. For most developers, organizations would have to pave the path to a better developer experience to achieve what the organization sets out to achieve and what cloud native development promises to deliver.


    But what really is developer experience? How can it be improved?


    And by extension, for organizations, what does improving the developer experience mean and how will better DevEx benefit them?
