To be honest I don't know. I think it is a technical team somewhere at the parent, but the only interaction I have with them is submitting a change request and waiting. There is a marketing/PR finger in the pie (just as you said in the OP), and why we are not allowed to run our own DNS servers for our domain. They think if we run our own servers we are going to start using inappropriate words for host names or something. I just don't know if they do it all, or just are an approval step.

Another thing I'm interested in is how well mergers go for the IT guys. I can see two major problem groups: culture clashes and lack of visibility into the newly acquired environment.
Take a baseball bat and trash all the routers, shout out "IT'S A NETWORK PROBLEM NOW, SUCKERS!" and then peel out of the parking lot in your Ferrari.

Well I may be modifying my original post seeing as how it was just announced that our entire IT org is being restructured and my roles counterpart was just laid off as well as my boss.

Wow. Ouch. That's another part of the question, who handles what after a layoff...
