How to move away from silos, calicification
Drew, I am not an expert on DevOps, but from what I've read, you want to standardize the environment as much as possible. Buy variations on one type of server, allow a narrow range of operating systems that will be maintained by someone else and stick to them. Limit the development tools, even though that is viewed as a serious incursion on the development team's preference and authority. Concentrate on the technologies needed by your organization and bar those that are peripheral or personal preferences. By simplifying the environment, you move closer to a DevOps style of operation.
