Awesome models
The primary goal of any DevOps setup within an organisation is to improve the delivery of value for customers and the business, not in itself to reduce costs, increase automation, or drive everything from configuration management; this means that different organisations might need different team structures in order for effective Dev and Ops collaboration to take place.

A simple idea: update your operating model to be able to build small, self-contained teams that create change quickly and efficiently.

I've been chatting with somebody on a client site about a large NZ employer who is "doing DevOps". They have a large in-house team of developers and support staff and also use a variety of third party suppliers for various support tasks. These 3rd parties are based on site and remotely.

The person I was talking to, used to work for a 3rd party and was moaning about the fact that the org. would expect the 3rd party to deliver dev and support to expected timeframes while internal DevOps teams would "hold up" the flow.

To me this would appear to be a fusion of DevOps and SIAM, but I could be wrong.

Has anyone come across this type of scenario, and if so, how was it handled ?

Well that was my thought as well, but I wondered if I was missing something.

In preparation for an upcoming presentation, I am seeking data on modern IT organisational designs and practices. I am attempting to acquire this data is via an open survey that closes on Monday 25 July 2016.

If you work in an IT organisation/department and have 5 spare minutes, I'd appreciate your views. If you are a consultant, please answer on behalf of your last client.

This survey is supporting non-for-profit, individual research into IT organisational design and practices.
No personal data is requested or stored and you will not be spammed.
All data will be made available to the public and a summary is provided to you upon completion.

Started well. Fell short.
IT Service Management and DevOps are perfectly complimentary, despite the modern myth of the two being enemies.

"Dev merely delivers the potential for making money and is active for only a small part of the system lifecycle"

Not so sure about that...Dev is a constant process at the cutting edge of competition. Talk to the banks about how much dev they are doing - it's literally continuous. Neither is more important - that's the f'n point!

In the world of software engineering, the QA team is often seen as separate from the Development team. Developers and testers have different roles, responsibilities, job descriptions, and management. So we can say that they are two distinct entities. Few questions are popping up in my minds from last 6 months that what happens with QA in a DevOps organization? When Development and Operations merge together, where does that leave QA? How does the testing team fit into a modern DevOps group? I hope this post will help you to understand where exactly the Qa fits and whats role does testing plays in DevOps. Read the post @ http://www.thinksys.com/blog/role-software-testing-devops-world/
By Rajiv Jain: Mark Berry said, “Programmers don’t burn out on hard work, they burn out on change-with-the-wind directives and not ‘shipping’”. I don’t know about the first but the desire to “ship” seems to be a powerful motivation for the push towards the adoption of DevOps practices among software development teams and companies everywhere. …
