Christoph Goldenstern, VP of Strategy & Service Excellence at Kepner Tregoe talks about Agile and DevOps and the trend for 'flattenning' IT organizations. IT Departments still tend to be very siloed in their approach to IT incident and problem management. This approach will not work when speed is important. DevOps is going to change this and IT departments still have work to do to get there. Service integration is important and the way of managing IT is changing. We must take an end to end process view, particularly with incident change and problem management.
