“DevOps Doesn’t Work.” Whether it’s from people who’s “DevOps Transformation” consisted of a renaming, or people who scoffed at the idea of letting development deploy to Prod more often, I hear this all the time. And frankly, I’m tired of “What is DevOps” talks.

man person. When a SysAdmin says “DevOps doesn’t work” or grumbles about giving access to Production to people, the real problem is that historically they have been outnumbered, overridden, and have not had authority aligned with responsibility.

All of the responsibility, none of the authority
Tragically slim Systems / Ops teams
I describe how to make things better.
