AN ANALYSIS OF DEVOPS’ IMPACT ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ORGANISATIONS: A CASE STUDY
Keywords:DevOps, Development and Operations, Culture, Automation, Deployment pipeline, Testing, Monitoring, Measurement
DevOps is a software development philosophy that involves the working together of development, operations, and other software development departments in order to accomplish common business objectives. However, very little has been done to establish the organisational impact of DevOps on information technology organisations; so an understanding of this phenomenon remains incomplete among practitioners and academic researchers. In this paper a framework for an appropriate DevOps restructuring approach is presented, based on the literature and on a single case study of a large multinational company with its headquarters in South Africa. The paper contributes to a better understanding of the organisational implications of the implementation of DevOps.
