"that anyone with any practical experience already knew?"

You'd hope, wouldn't you? But there are places where the people in charge, the PHBs etc are a bit hard-of-thinking and insist on and write policies forcing e.g. all data gathered in the expensive London centre to be piped hundreds of miles to the cheap DC located in a marsh with low land values, before being piped back to the London for analysis then piped back to the swamp... repeat ad infinitum.
