DevOps is a widely adopted practice to consistently develop and upgrade a system that is already in use. Between software development and operations, DevOps presupposes cross-functional cooperation and automation. The adoption and execution of DevOps in businesses are complicated since it necessitates adjustments to organizational, technical, and cultural factors. The implementation of DevOps in practice is thoroughly described in this systemic literature review (SLR). The study focuses on the identification of the manager's challenges in the DevOps environment and also intends to find the mitigation practices. In this article, SLR has been performed to identify the manager's challenges and the state-of-The-Art mitigation strategies. This study identifies twenty challenges from the manager's perspective and the applied mitigation strategies to overcome the challenges. The findings of the current work would be beneficial in comprehending the DevOps idea, methods, and perceived impacts, particularly among managers while adopting DevOps in the organization.
