Characterization of DevOps practices in software development organizations: A systematic mapping


DevOps is a set of software engineering practices that combine efforts from development and operations areas, with the aim of improving delivery time and software quality. The goal of this study is to characterize DevOps practices used by organizations that develop software. For this, we performed a systematic literature mapping covering the period 2015-2019. In total, 42 primary articles were included and analyzed. We identified and classified a total of 20 DevOps practices, 18 criteria to evaluate DevOps practices, 16 benefits and 19 challenges related to DevOps’ adoption. Our results show the need for more empirical studies in organizations, which directly address issues like evaluation criteria to assess the operation of DevOps practices.
