Containerization, exemplified by Docker, is wildly popular in a growing number of organizations. The interest varies widely across and within organizations; our recommendations range from Assess to Adopt. The ecosystem (tools, platforms and techniques) is growing and maturing, further accelerating interest. Astute readers will note related topics across our radar, ranging from Docker as a development tool for managing dependencies to large cloud platforms such as Mesos and AWS ECS that use containers as their "unit of scaling".
Interest continues unabated around this architectural style, which transitively boosts interest in supporting tools and techniques: DevOps practices like containerization, lessons learned such as the perils of programming in your CI/CD tool, the maturity of service discovery tools, and so on. We expect to see even more growth and maturity in this space in the near future.
Security is an issue that uniquely affects all roles across the software development lifecycle. We highlighted improvement in the security space in the last Technology Radar, and we’re pleased to see teams baking security practices into their SDLC. In this edition we also highlight innovative approaches such as bug bounties, threat modelling, HSTS, TOTP and Let’s Encrypt. We hope traction continues to improve in this space.
