This paper is written to support a phenomenon in which development and operations (DevOps) teams work together to deliver software on a continuous pace, eliminating the walls of confusion between stakeholders, and facilitating the business to seize and cope up with existing and constantly emerging opportunities. The main processes are development, quality assurance, pre-operational and operational. There are many tools involved in the implementation of DevOps such as Git, Jenkins, Chef, Vegrant, Docker and Hadoop. Due to the technical expertise in variety of tools, DevOps faces many factors that hinder its adoption such as change in the working norms of traditional teams, team structure and cost. The most significant factor is resistance to change by the traditional teams. In this paper, we will identify the possible change-resistant personnel, the reasons behind change-resistant and a solution is proposed to overcome change-resistant. A survey is used as a research design to validate the proposed solution. The results of survey support the proposed solution that it will help the software companies to cope the change resistance while adopting DevOps.
