As businesses embark on their digital transformation journey, developers are driving innovation across cloud native environments for building into the future. According to a recently released report by Cloud Foundry Foundation, 45 percent of user respondents describe their Cloud Foundry use as “broad” compared to 30 percent in 2018 and 24 percent in 2017. The report also revealed that 39 percent of developers are deploying applications in less than one day.

What points out towards a healthy and growing community of developers is the fact that almost one in five respondents started using Cloud Foundry in just the last 12 months.

The broadening adoption is expected to continue with investments in the Cloud Foundry platform deepening. Nearly half of survey respondents report they have at least 100 developers using Cloud Foundry, a significant jump from just one-third last year, and the share of companies with more than 50 applications on Cloud Foundry grew from 24 percent in 2017 to 43 percent in 2019.

According to an analysis by third-party source{d}, which has technology that provides engineering observability over the entire software development lifecycle, the Cloud Foundry project total number of commits per month remains quite high with a total of 50,000 per month over the past year. The highest levels of activity are centered around the Stratos UI project, Istio integrations and the core Cloud Foundry Application Runtime Cloud Controller.

In addition, project velocity is on the upswing this year, with average time to merge reduced from eight days down to three days most recently.

The 2019 User Survey, released at the European Cloud Foundry Summit in The Hague, also confirmed the positive impact of Cloud Foundry’s developer-first commitment.
