Abstract [en]

Information system development projecs are often considered a costly and uncertain process were projects often exceed the scheduled time and budget. By continuously integrating source code and do regular builds problems can be discovered almost directly and thus minimizing the cost to fix them. In this qualitative study we have focused on which challenges a large public organization who cooperate with an external provider can face when adopting continuous integration and continuous delivery. We have interviewed six employees within the organisation and two employees from the external provider, who are all in some way connected to the software development process.

The results showed that our interviewees are interested in agile software development and to be able to deliver high quality software continuously. We also found that the software development process is complex and has a lot of barriers and handovers that slows the process down.

Our conclusion is that the organization needs to change their approach to software development. To achieve this the organisation needs to adopt Devops, which means erasing the barriers between development and operations.
