Bruce Rayner from Enterprise Efficiency did this nice writeup on how we leveraged the IT expertise within our company to jump start our SaaS product development here at NI. Our whole team except for our manager worked at some point within NI IT, but are now doing product development in R&D. I know to smaller companies it seems like not so much of a big deal, but in larger companies it can be hard to maintain a culture where you really can decide what you want to do, establish its priority, and then put the right kinda and type of resource on it despite organizational boundaries. Organizational agility FTW!
