Overengineering is the process of designing a product with more features than necessary. When deployed for its intended use, the product is unnecessarily complex, inefficient, or both. The increased costs, risks, and/or complexities of the system will eventually result in its failure.

Sign #1: The lack of centralized command and control. The core problem for most enterprises is a lack of centralized planning. The pandemic sped up the use of cloud-based resources, and that caused many enterprises to rush through implementing their cloud solutions without proper planning or centralized command and control.
