re: Hire Goats, Not Outside DevOps Engineers
Agree with many of the authors comments ! More IT e-zines should recognized and promote the need for Generalists as well as those who are capable of seeing the big picture (and who know enough to know what is possible in a wide variety of areas).

The thing about putting an insider in charge of mediating between IT and dev is that it may not bring new perspective to the situation. "Outsider" does not have to equal "sweeping changes" - it can mean a new eye, without bias.
