Let’s talk about maturity in automation

I encourage all of you to check out John Allspaw’s new blog series on automation. I am excited about changing the conversation in our industry from tool-happy discussions to how IT can mature in its use of automation. It doesn’t matter if you are pushing DevOps, Lean, ITIL, whatever. The point is that the IT industry needs to grow up and sit at the adults’ table. Too much of our economy rides upon the success of what we do for a living to let ourselves get distracted by the coolness of what we do, and forget the seriousness of what it means.

Push on Mr. Allspaw. Now, I will delve into those massive papers you referred to in your blog. I feel like I am in graduate school again. Too bad there isn’t any Jolt Cola in the house.
