In the age of Dev Ops, it's not unusual for a non-development IT manager to be charged with overseeing the dev team. But with the right attitude -- and these seven tips -- you can make sure that your move to managing developers is successful.
When Andrew Horne, IT practice leader at consulting firm CEB, talks with IT professionals about digitization, the term itself is often greeted with eye rolling.

Measured for working-age households, market income inequality is comparatively high (rather than moderate) and the level of redistribution is moderate (not low).These comparisons indicate Americans shift from reliance on market income to reliance on income transfers later in life and less than households in other developed countries do.
