Recently found this gem of a presentation, made by Adam Davis:

This is a must watch video.  Adam makes a strong case for re-evaluating how we run IT ops today, and how developers engage operations.  I too started as a UNIX sysadmin, and can relate to the the teaming that used to take place with developers, dba’s, net admins, etc.  Oh how times have changed.

I agree that if we are truly going to take advantage of what cloud computing and cloud-native applications provide the enterprise, we all need to be proponents of change.  Creating a parallel infrastructure to start driving change is a fantastic approach.
