Managing the IT-IT-business relationship
Grab a coffee and have a look at our poll
Last week, we broached the subject of whether there was a gap between development and operations in IT. It’s a difficult one, not least because its very easy to make generalizations (but we have garnered some great feedback).
Indeed, a general position is that any such gap is an unhealthy thing to have. However, in reality there will be circumstances where a more formal relationship would be preferable, if it were properly defined and stuck to. One school of thought would have dev and ops (for example) playing football on a Sunday morning, while another might prefer to see the careful vetting of any communication between the two, to ensure it meets contractual or policy requirements.
In the spirit of bottoming out questions such as these, we’ve drawn up the following poll which delves into the different kinds of relations that may exist. Do please let us know what you think, and we’ll feed back the results sharpish.
