JENKINS USAGE INCREASED 85%, EXTENDS FURTHER INTO OPERATIONS AND DEPLOYMENT

After active year for the Jenkins community, 2016 Annual State of Jenkins community survey shows significant growth

The Jenkins project, comprised of a community of practitioners using Jenkins, have announced results from its annual State of Jenkins Community Survey, sponsored by CloudBees. The results show the increase of Jenkins usage within existing user organizations, an increase in organizations new to Jenkins and an increase in organizations implementing continuous delivery (CD). In fact, 85% of 1,202 survey respondents stated their company's use of Jenkins has increased over the past year and of those practicing continuous delivery, 54% are using Jenkins Pipeline.

Notable statistics from Jenkins users responding to the 2016 State of Jenkins Community Survey results include:

* 85% stated their company's use of Jenkins has increased over the past year

90% said Jenkins is mission-critical to their company

* 45% are practicing continuous delivery with deployment to production

* 61 % are deploying changes to production at least once per week

* 54% of Jenkins users surveyed who are practicing CD use Pipeline as Code to define software pipelines

* 50% of stated they are using container technology; of those 50%, 92% of them are using Docker

In this survey, Jenkins users share insights on Jenkins--their environment, how they use Jenkins today and what they'd like to see in the future. In 2016, 96% of survey respondents use Jenkins for build tasks. However, 36% also use Jenkins for operations tasks, as compared to 24% in the 2015 survey. The increase points to Jenkins extending further down the software delivery process, into the operations domain. Additionally, in 2016, 62% are using Jenkins for deployment activities, as compared to 58% in 2015, showing that automation with Jenkins is extending all the way to production.

Proving the growth in Jenkins usage, in the 2016 survey, 20% of respondents ranked themselves as "Beginner" in their level of Jenkins expertise, as compared to 11% in 2015.
