Abstract (ENG): Team-oriented, service-centric approaches for software delivery processes are becoming more and more popular. One approach that has appeared on the scene in the last decade is called DevOps. To date, little is known about how cross-functional product-oriented teams can be integrated within traditional companies. Hence, we decided to contact organizations that have already started implementing DevOps-specific processes. We talked to 34 people from 10 organizations and derived new insights into the area of DevOps. We show that there are different patterns by which DevOps can be integrated within companies—e.g. with the help of platform-oriented teams. Further, we find that teams are organized in different setups and use extended workbenches for collaboration. Our case study highlights that for successful DevOps implementation, it is important to convince every stakeholder and to work with agile coaches who can foster awareness for the necessity of DevOps
