I co-write a paper on DevOps with Barton George right before I left Dell. It’s finally up as a PDF. And check the denim button-up hipster they have gracing the first page!

Kidding aside, I have a core belief (as you’d expect from an analyst who was brought up at RedMonk) that developers drive a tremendous amount of IT decision making, spend, and, of course, build out. This paper focuses on describing that dynamic and, essentially, pointing out that developers are damned important.

Check out Barton’s summary as well.
