The term DevOps appears at 2009, it is a new paradigm, in which the developing process and deployment are integrated. Currently enterprises such as Etsy, Facebook, Amazon or Netflix are leaders in the implementation of DevOps paradigm. In this work, we present a guideline to implement the CALMS model (DevOps) at mipymes in the software development organizations of the South of Colombia. We present the technical and organizational aspects of guidelines; it integrates a newfangled development environment to develop of DevOps in the Colombian context. The purposed model was tested at mipymes from Colombia and the results are promising. The mipymes did a daily commit, when without of the guidelines they did a commit per week, in addition, 16 deployments were successful and upload to production, front 20 total deployments. Finally, we discuss how the implementation of the guidelines in an environment tested and integrated can be more productive organization, as well as how they can be competitive software companies in a globalized market.
