Abstract (ENG): The resource-based view (RBV) purpose is to explore which capabilities of information system development teams enable companies to gain a competitive advantage. The aim of this paper is to analyze the key capabilities for building DevOps teams to react fast in rapid changing environments. DevOps teams aim to close the gap between development and operation activities within an information system development environment and to accelerate software feature deployments. Therefore, we derived seven key capabilities from previous literature and conducted a case study with five companies from different industries to find out how they affect software process innovation. We ordered these key capabilities to the dimensions of intellectual capital. Subsequently, we explain through which of them DevOps teams, could achieve a software process innovation in form of the fast deployment of the feature of a software.
