Description

Using agile development and operations (DevOps) practices to deliver software as a service (SaaS) is often considered unsuitable for large scale, distributed software projects delivering mission critical software. Although there is an increasing call for agile delivery to be able to react on ever changing business requirements, there is little empirical research that shows when and how DevOps practices can be adopted successfully within an organization to deliver mission critical software. Based on the preliminary results of a case study at a multinational software company, we identify critical issues and suggest a method to overcome them, so that adopting DevOps practices for mission critical software is feasible.
