Re: 2 responses
My initial post was meant to highlight the problem and not use the post to self-promote. I hope that was clear. That said, the author's comment is exactly the line that my team and I follow. While it is the most appropriate course of action, when dealing with large organizations, it's pretty tough to get the attention of a CIO responsible for so much.

Stil, if you are trying to shake the tree, the top down approach is the best path to follow.

@zkerravala: Moreover, in addition from these initiatives having to come from the top down, they have to have unity from the top down as well -- demonstrating the CIO and other C-suiters/top execs publicly "shaking hands" and agreeing to work together on them. This will help unite goals and methodologies while increasing collaboration.

Re: 2 responses
Thanks for your feedback.  I agree with the "good luck" statement as I often feel that infrastructure and DevOps do not want to work together.  This is why this needs to be driven top down from the CIO and the goals of the groups need to be aligned

Considering the friction and finger-pointing that already exists in organizations among DevOps itself (i.e., between front-end and back-end developers), when you suggest getting security involved from the outset, I say two things:

(1) "Hear, hear!"

and

(2) "Good luck."

security adoption
This post accurately portrays the friction that has existed between two critical company teams. Top line stakeholders who are responsible for compliance, brand integrity and sometimes revenue have a clear interest in seeing the two work together. Application security has been a daunting task as it typically requires the diverting of precious resources to integrate solutions that actually work but do not affect user experience. Solid solutions do exist, but only a few deliver on the promise of easy deployment without integration.
