For years I’ve ranted about the lack of fiscal responsibility around how we pick and leverage cloud technology for enterprise deployments. There are dozens of solutions that solve the same problems using cloud resources, but only one can fully optimize a specific business case and the business value it should return.
It’s time to admit that at the beginning of our cloud deployments, our teams weren’t as skilled or knowledgeable about how to best address our enterprise’s specific problems. Perhaps our cloud architects now realize they could have made better choices when they picked and configured the technology stack. Hindsight is 20/20, right? However, when questioned, their natural inclination is to get defensive. They usually push back on any criticism, constructive or otherwise, with some version of, “It works, doesn’t it?”
