any idea about the business
In my opinion, it's the business' job to know about the business.
I should know just enough to do my job, but I should be told so by... Yes, the business.
You can't expect a developer to know about programming and everything related (databases, cloud, networking, etc.) and also know everything about whatever business you're working in (if it's even the same as a developer's previous job(s)).
Even if I know about some domain, let's say transport, every transport company probably has their own way to do things.
I could make something amazing that would've worked wonderfully at another business, but not yours.

Now go ask "the business people" if they know what their neighbor does, they don't.
Sales doesn't know accounting doesn't know planning doesn't know IT...
Yet people expect developers to know about all of them D'Oh! | :doh:
