C-Suite Signals Towards DevOps
CIO.com (and the print edtion) is reporting that CIOs are increasingly looking to embed IT staff in the business units they serve rather than centralize them all directly under the CIO.
With a major theme in both agile development and DevOps being better collaboration of IT teams with the business (“alignment” in C*O speak) these are the kinds of reports we should expect to see more of as Agile and DevOps gain traction. If you notice this happening in your organization, it is a good time to try to nudge the reorg towards aligning dev / qa / ops teams along application boundaries. While the system is in flux, push hard to get closer to an arrangement that will support better collaboration across the application delivery chain.
