For developers, it’s all about the experience.

Easy.  Fast.  Predictable.

And that’s why they are attracted to public cloud.

Let’s face it, the developer experience with traditional IT is pretty miserable.  When you have a request, IT needs to make sure they have the resources, then your request goes through the corporate approval process and (fingers crossed) it gets approved.  This process presumes that no hardware needs to be purchased, racked and stacked and an operating system installed.

Developers want to focus on building and running applications.   They don’t want to think about servers, networking, data centers or pipes.  They just want it to work via self-service access through a dashboard or API.

From the perspective of IT, there is functionality that you provide that public clouds cannot such as visibility into and management of the full stack.  This has been the hallmark of success for the central IT team.  

great divideA great divide exists between developers and IT.   Developers want an experience that is easy, faster and predictable.  IT teams strive for control, reliability and visibility.
