Unrealistic Expectations *Silver Bullets Blind Faith *Absolution Too many Recipes *One more wafer Mr Creosote Confidence that you can suddenly orchestrate your complex “Payments System” at the push of a button. A belief that most of the tasks done previously by IT team (e.g. Integration, Security, Resilience etc.) are now magically simplified or obsolete. Trusting that your IT lifecycle will move much faster if the DEVOPS super stars can orchestrate as much as possible through lots of coding/scripting. Tip! Infrastructure Orchestration is easy, however “real” Orchestration needs solid Environment Transparency and Operational Insight. Tip! Cloud does not absolve operational, responsibilities. You still need effective IT Environment Management and IT Governance. Tip! Ensure automated solutions are practical and easy to maintain. Environment Tooling & Ops Standardisation can prove to be more robust & cost effective. Vendor said it was Easy *Tip of The Iceberg We only pay for what we use *Over Proliferation Many IT Executives are instantly attracted to the simplicity of cloud and orchestration. Or at least the simplicity sold by the cloud or tool vendor. The ease of creating infrastructure comes with a hidden financial risk, that is Infrastructure and License Proliferation will happen quickly. Tip! Don’t believe the hype. To get the benefits you desire you still need to build and manage 90% of what's underneath. Without environment management, governance, usage analytics and decommissioning this models it will quickly get out of hand. Why 95% of Private Cloud implementations are failing. And why you need to consider a mature IT Environment Management solution.
