Lets face it, something is fundamentally wrong with our current IT practice. during my long (cross continental and industrial) IT career over companies of different sizes, I never heard from IT customers or seen any companies that are really happy with their IT group. Well, actually I never heard any CIO that didn’t claim that he inherit a mess as well. I never heard such a systematic attitude for financial, marketing or other enterprise groups.
I’m not claiming that I found the right way to practice IT. I just realized that if we won’t try completely different approaches to run IT, there’s no way that we are going to change the current situation. That’s the 2nd reason why we (Friedkin Companies IT) are implementing DevOps.
