Who is the "Bitsmith" in your domain?

Harvard Business Review's Management Tip of the Day today (Thursday, July 8, 2010) is Get Yourself a Bitsmith. A Bitsmith is defined as, "a person who understands both the work content and the tools needed to support the job."
One thing that organizations need to understand is that IT is more than a group of code and reboot monkeys that can be simply plugged into a position like a warm body in the Matrix. Successful IT in any company understands the objectives of the business and what it needs to do to see it happen. "By understanding the domain and the technology, bitsmiths can quickly take an idea from concept to implementation, speeding up productivity. Find someone on your team or bring someone in from IT who can serve as your bitsmith."
