DevOps has come into play to help companies in improving their product delivery. This paper offers an overview of the fallacies and pitfalls faced in this context by engineers and operators in an industrial case-study. We reveal a total of 8 key fallacies and pitfalls that span the organisational structure, technical structures, as well as software process and delivery mechanisms in the target case-study. Practitioners can use these challenges as references for diagnosing their own scenario while planning their own potential DevOps process migration strategy.
