Re: Think I know what I'd rather have....
Yes the underlying stuff will be running on a private cloud on commodity hardware, but running on top of that will be a pile of
steaming latest/greatest in-house apps & microservices developed in the latest/greatest Agile & DevOps fashion.
This will be great for a couple of years, until the original devs leave. Then it's going to be exactly the same problems, with nobody now having a clue how (or if) all of these things interface - again. Only now it will originally have been implemented in a more efficient fashion.
