What if IT operations and development teams worked together in the cloud?

Most IT departments are divided into two organizations: operations – the guys that keep the infrastructure lights on – and development, the programmers writing applications. With the advent of cloud computing, programmers and their cohorts on the business side sidestepped the IT ops team, buying infrastructure resources (servers, storage, etc.) directly from cloud providers, much faster than they could from their own infrastructure organization. Forward-looking CIOs and heads of IT are realizing that they can deliver better IT services to the business, at a lower cost, if they embrace cloud and bring the two sides of the IT organization together.
