Developers want to solve problems and create strong code foundations that prevent bugs. Operations managers want to make sure a product is working and improvements are being made. Stagnation, or a lack of activity, is a worst case scenario for any technical team.
At Zivtech we use Vagrant for all of our development. It allows us to effortlessly spin up new development environments on many different systems and ensures that we have the exact same software available in development that we will in production.
