Is DevSecOps the right answer?
No doubt it makes sense to build apps in a way that a single SEIM can provide a holistic view.  But that's not the entire security story - that's really just consolidatiing the forensics.  As we move into a world with cloud native applications, it is risky to rely on developers to also think about operations AND security.  Is it possible that one person can optimize all three?  Organizations have utilized the seperation of duties model for years for the simple reason that focus and accountability brings results.  Increasing developer awareness of security is of course a good thing and likely to yield some results. But maintaining a strong, independant security team just seems to make sense.  Beyond the org structure, the security tools need to evolve to bring the seperation of duties model to the self service cloud.  Amazon took a big step forward with recent enhancements to their IAM capabilites, segmenting some security functions from day to day dev and ops functions.  But there's still a long way to go for the tools to enforce true seperation of duties.  DevOps yes.  DevSecOps and security is all taken care of?  Doubtful.

Re: SIEM as Hub
In regard to "If change management is central, why are you focusing on the SIEM as central?".  Though the SEIM traditionally has been used as a 'security' device or system, it is evolving into the organizations information systems nerve processing center.  Shipping logs to the SIEM from internal and external systems can be used to detect issues within the network.  The same is true for change management logs.  In effect connecting change management to the SEIM is useful in regard to detecting possible outages that may result due to bad or incorrect changes implemented.  in regard to "DevSecOps should bring together all IT operational teams, not merely orchestrate silo'd security tools."  It is easy to dictate to people the necessity to collaborate and they may try to.  Creating technology bridges across silos may be a great way to start tearing down the silo walls.

SIEM as Hub
If change management is central, why are you focusing on the SIEM as central? The SIEM focuses on threats, not context. Your CMDB provides risk context including for change management. If you don't know clearly what you are protecting you will focus on threats for which you have no underlying exposure. DevSecOps should bring together all IT operational teams, not merely orchestrate silo'd security tools.
