"The key was having a consistent approach to system management, which begins with a well-defined Standard Operating Environment (SOE). Additionally, Glantz has defined a lifecycle management plan that describes the lifecycle of how Linux will be used at Ikea for the next seven years."
And why I regard DevOps as a disaster in the making. While "DevOps" isn't bad for small companies, like ones I've worked for, where you 'wear many hats' or a rapidly moving R and D environment it is very dangerous in a real production environment. Of course clueless management will use "DevOps" as a cost cutting measure and then after the disaster fire everyone and outsource everything, often with even worse results, for what is essentially bad management.
But hey, they were Agile, Nimble, flexible, idiot sourced, and buzz word compliant.
I keep asking this question and no one seems to have a good answer. How can an economy as small as Greece's; or for that matter Italy's and Spain's; send global markets and economies as big as Germany and the US into a tailspin? There is somethings very wrong with our financial and economic policies. All this tight binding of economies and fifnacial systems seems to be a recipe for disaster.
A mid-air collision or some one on the ground who gets killed by the fire would have been manslaughter. Drone owners are idiots. News channels with helicopters ask permission and coordinate, and the Forest Service does so as they are mandated to respect freedom of the press. We need to license drones just like we do light aircraft and require training. Get rid of the idiots.
Sort of like a craigslist for ridesharing. I am not a great developer and haven't done anything with apps but if anyone wants to run with the idea it is fine with me.
If they are matchmakers then both the driver and the passenger would pay money to Uber for their service. Only Uber would get paid.
My point is they are lying. They are a taxi service which happens to use a smart phone app. n fact I have decided that if I ever use them I will NOT tip the driver. After all, I am already cover the gas money. Right?
Clarification, non-globalized with localized control, with drivers who both get dispatched and hailed on the street and often pick people up because they know their schedule.
You ask that question as if it were a bad thing....
Really. Did they do a controlled study? How did they factor in the complexity of the problem domain, the experience of their developers, the efficiency of their tools etc.? Or is this just another buzz word compliant"'it worked for me marketing gimmick? Does it scale based on project and team size? What about global projects where the team may be in Europe, N. America, and Asia? How did they control for those factors?
Sorry, it sounds like crap to me.
They are a global taxi service with centralized command and control. A taxi service which does not want to be treated as a taxi service. The only difference is they use a smart phone app as a dispatcher.
They lie about what they are and elicit sympathy for the 'little guy' to rip off the little guy. I will use the independents instead, thank you.
Nice unbiased poll you've got there.
They double rot 13 encrypt it just to be safe....
Antonin is that you?
