The software folks write the software that the IT guys are gonna install. The software guys follow the diretions of the R&D folks who conceive of the software. The R&D folks help write the software, test it, and complain about the software and IT folks.
And guess who gets to write the manuals for the software and for the software installation? And guess who trains customers on how to use the software? And guess who creates and uploads the YouTube videos on how to use the software?
