Bleeding edge rules

By dconine ·
Your article was pretty good, as long as you are working in cubicle-land and don't have any departments that push the envelope. In which case, I suggest that the IT department consider setting up two sets of 'rules' or standards in order to keep their sanity. For the general administration of a customer's facility, have the standard 'blue rules', but for a scientific or R & D /engineering department, have a separate system and rules set that treats the customer with a more hands-off approach toallow the users to add or upgrade at will (within a few guidelines, of course). This will do a lot to build respect between IT and the paradigm-breakers so that they can both get their jobs done without interference, and still be willing to cooperate at a necessary level. Many people who are setting up test facilities will know more than most networking people about how the computer system works (and how to hack it), but will need the network pros to keep them honest and glitch-free when connecting to the world outside the lab.
