DevOps has gained high importance in the global software industry due to the ease of software development, testing and deployment it provides. However, the Saudi software industry has not been able to adopt DevOps at a great pace due to various factors. This study, thus, aimed to examine different factors that hindered the adoption of DevOps in the Saudi software industry. Also, recommendations are provided at the end for Saudi Arabia to enhance the adoption of DevOps in its software industry. To accomplish the aims, this study used a literature review and interviews to gather data and examine it to produce the findings. The findings of the study highlight lack of support from organizational management and lack of laws as the major factors for the adoption of DevOps in the Saudi software industry.
