Role Fragmentation

Good article on the ongoing fragmentation of roles in the Software Industry. [From Sylvain Duford]

How many administrators does it take to tip a donkey?

In the beginning it was simple: there were analysts and developers. PC developers doubled up as administrators, and analysts doubled up as managers.

Somehow over the past 10 years, a cancer has been growing inside large organisations - called role fragmentation. As the roles have fragmented, an entire non-industry has bloomed. Network administration, database administration, security administration, component administration, deployment administration, tool administration. The list just goes on and on.
