VIEW DEV AND OPS AS ROLES

Things don’t collaborate, people do. “Dev” and “ops” are roles, not people – and a role is nothing more than a loose collection of responsibilities, duties, and tasks. To foster better collaboration, the first step is to think of dev and ops as roles rather than teams, departments, or other organizational units. The second step is to realize that in the modern corporate environment, individuals assume different roles at different times, and often several at once, depending on the needs of the organization. At that point, the labels “dev” and “ops” themselves start to blur, as many of the duties and tasks previously assigned to one or the other no longer fall into one role or the other (e.g. is creating a Chef recipe a dev task or an ops one?) In the end, of course, the question itself becomes meaningless. The real question is: how do we foster and support a collaborative environment across the entire organization?
