If you’re in technology your profession is to solve problems, it’s not to entrench poor decisions in a company, which in some sense everyone is at fault for, but this area affects a lot of a company and the attitudes are pretty anti-improvement if it goes out of someone’s skill set. The end result is that the software will be moved out of operations, I see this more and more. Operations can’t improve just by magic, they need to embrace the past 50 years of computing knowledge too.
Oh. Really? /s
That's literally what DevOps is all about. I'm sorry but Infrastructure isn't as simple to manage in code as "regular" software. The Infrastructure API's mutate or behave in unexpected ways too often. State drift is common. There is active work in figuring out better solutions. But to say that operations have not embraced computing knowledge is nonsense.
