Abstract

With the increasing expectation of faster and higher quality applications, Continuous processes can be a solution for organizations. However, the adoption of these continuous processes is not an effortless task for organizations. A previous research provided a framework of the Critical Success Factors for the adoption of Continuous Processes. The purpose of this research was to examine what measures organizations can take for the Critical Success Factors that can support the implementation of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Through a systematic literature review, a search was conducted to find the measures that can contribute to the Critical Success Factors for the adoption of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. These measures together provide a theoretical framework. This theoretical framework was then validated during an empirical research by interviewing experts in the field of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery and finally resulted in a practical framework that can be used by organizations as a guide before, during and after the implementation of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.
