Thanks to the cloud, mobility, and emerging practices like DevOps, I don’t think anyone would argue we aren’t in one of the most rapidly evolving IT eras since the emergence of the World Wide Web. Like it, hate it, or anywhere in between, everyone I speak with knows the winds have changed. Personally I believe these disruptions are more impactful than our first tenuous connections to the Internet but that’s fodder for another post.

It is clear we don’t yet know fully how these advances will change existing IT practices across different kinds of organizations.

That’s why we are partnering with JumpCloud to get a better sense of these evolving technologies; along with the impact of, and approaches to, internal practices and DevOps.

This isn’t a vendor-licensed or -sponsored study. JumpCloud is on the operations side, Securosis on the security side, and we are both looking for a better idea of what’s going on out there, so we decided to partner up.

You can take the survey here.

As usual, we will release all the raw data (anonymized, of course) back to the community. We are also giving away cool stuff to random winners who complete the entire survey (and leave contact info). An Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Gear 2 Neo Smartwatch, or a Fitbit Flex. (We decided to change things up from the usual Apple giveaway).

So please spread the word and take the survey.
