Arguing with Mark Burgess is easy. When I read his article in this issue, I found myself agreeing with some parts and disagreeing with others. System administration has changed in many ways, but some things will remain the same.
In his opinion piece, Mark makes a point that he has made before: that sysadmins need to become business relevant. Although I understand his point, I also doubt that any sysadmin (who wasn’t fired) was ever business irrelevant.
