I wanted to alert you that tomorrow we’ll issue a news release on our key
findings from the eighth User Survey. This cycle, we focused on a
deployments-only update of the charts most often cited by our community.
On openstack.org/user-survey <http://www.openstack.org/user-survey>, you’ll be
able to download the 12-page PDF “highlights” report (as well as past reports),
view a 2-minute video overview <https://youtu.be/m9p8NUMs_PM>, and learn more
about these key findings:
NPS for deployments continues to tick up, 8 points higher than a year ago.
The share of deployments in production is 20% higher than a year ago.
Cost, operational efficiency and innovation are the top three business drivers.
Significantly higher interest in NFV and bare metal, and containers leads the
list of emerging technologies three cycles in a row.
OpenStack is adopted by companies of every size. Nearly one-quarter of users
are companies smaller than 100 people.
Want to dig deeper? We’re unveiling a beta version of our User Survey analysis
tool at www.openstack.org/analytics <http://www.openstack.org/analytics> that
enables you to compare 2016 data to prior data, and to apply six global filters
to evaluate key metrics that matter to you.
We look forward to February, when we’ll ask you to answer the full-length User
Survey. The report will be available by our Boston Summit, May 8–12, 2017.
Please feel free to send me any questions or feedback about either the report
or analysis tool.
