Version control systems are a kind of software tool that supports a software team to manage changes to source code over time. Various sorts of version control systems are CVS, SVN, GIT, Mercurial, and others. The principal purpose of this system is to make backups, which enable the developers to work effectively and efficiently over time. Version control systems are extensively used by development units to efficiently track modification in software without any manual intervention. The entire system is supposed to reduce the complexity of software development processes. Version control software keeps track of every change to the code in a particular kind of database. If an error is created, developers can turn back the clock and match more immediate versions of the code to help fix the mistake while reducing disturbance to all team members.
Version control software is a significant part of the every-day of the current software team’s professional practices. Different software developers who are regularly working with a capable version control system in their teams typically understand the incredible value version control also gives them even on small solo plans. Version Control Systems (VCS) have seen numerous developments over the past few decades and some are better than others. VCS are seldom known as SCM (Source Code Management) tools or RCS (Revision Control System).
COVID-19 scenario analysis
Attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, many consumers are now conscious about their income and are not ready to spend money. This has caused the slowdown of version control deployments.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis
A considerable rise in the demand for automation and digitalization in the software development process and the growing adaption of smartphones and tablets represent the key factors strengthening the global VCS market growth. Apart from this, the increasing need for user-friendly solutions is catalysing the demand for automated tracking tools and software solutions. This, in turn, is positively influencing the sales of VCS across the globe. As VCS offers portability, auditing, and interoperability benefits, manages multiple versions of codes and eliminates duplication of efforts, the demand for these systems is fuelling the version controls systems market growth. Besides this, software developers are adopting VCS to increasing productivity and automate tasks such as deployment and testing. Other factors like the growing need for open-source and cross-platform VCS, such as Git, Subversion, and GitHub, which support platforms, frameworks, languages, and multiple sets of technologies, are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market.
Despite having numerous advantages of version control systems, some factors restrain and challenge the market growth. The availability of the open-source version control systems, tremendous competitive market, and the value of alternative applications by IT organizations are expected to a major factor hampering the growth of the market. The challenges, such as data security and fraud issues, are also expected to hinder the version control systems market growth.
The growing use of distributed version control systems for software development, which enables users to clone the closet, can lead to security and data theft concerns. Furthermore, projects that are constantly updated and have huge files may slow down the advancement process. This is further expected to act as a challenge to the market growth. Nevertheless, the growing need for large-scale version control systems and the availability of cost-effective version control systems for SMEs are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market.
