For tonight as I ride the train home, jammed fairly full of people, I am pondering the divide I have noticed increasingly more and more between systems people and operations people; especially given the tremendous negative impacts this divide can have on a project like the one I manage.
This is one of the reasons I decided to switch to a position with an SCM systems vendor versus continuing on in an operations role. Even with what I have learned in just under four months, I already feel the advantage of having this experience when combined with my operational knowledge. The fact that Manhattan has a great team right now in Japan also has enhanced the timing.
I look forward to being a bridge between systems and operations on a regular basis.
