Re: Change or be irrelevant
If the system is at the cutting edge of modern technology and it's designed properly from the beginning, then the pressure is not so heavy for DevOps. But for legacy system, DevOps may become a nightmare for on-call person.

Yes, use Puppet, Chef but use them in the cloud
Kevin is making a lot of good points in this column about the use of Puppet, Chef, Ansible, etc. But I would add that it makes the most sense to use them in a cloud setting, as part of a platform as a service. There are cloud applications in every organization's future. Why not use them there and decicde after development where the new application is to be deployed?
