In 2018, DevOps Institute launched the first “Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Survey and Report,” highlighting the current trends and gaps in the market focusing on the human side of DevOps.

The goal of this community research project is to provide critical insight and benchmark data on the state of DevOps skills so that we can measure trends and progress year over year.

The survey and report have received significant visibility in the market and has been leveraged by leading organizations across the globe.

Sponsorship for the Upskilling Survey and Report is now open till December 20, 2019. When the survey closes, the 2020 report will be released in February, providing many months of visibility.

As a sponsor, you will be part of the tremendous visibility the report has been receiving as highlighted by Jeremy Douglas from Catapult PR.

Sponsors are encouraged to leverage support of the community research project and demonstrate thought leadership around the Human element of DevOps through social media, drop into newsletters, include in marketing campaigns and at industry events like CloudBees had done at the DevOps World. Here is video from the keynote session.
