Ditch Chef, Puppet, Splunk and snyk for GitLab? That's the pitch from your new wannabe one-stop DevOps shop

[Sijbrandij:] "It is not so much that applications get moved, because that's super costly. But you could say all new applications will be on a different cloud from now."

And thus it was acknowledged that IT shops must encompass the skill sets to indefinitely drag the baggage of applications developed for what previous generations thought was to be the one and only platform, each with its own quirks and foibles, never actually migrating to a single underpinning, forever dealing with integrations reliant on tenuous agreements and bits of string,

Just like their ancestors, victims of management decrees. "All new systems will be built in PL/I." "All new systems will be built with a client/server architecture." "All new systems will target OS/2 as the client." "All new systems will be web based." "All new systems will be cloud based." "All new systems will target AWS." And so on and so forth, ad infinitum, from now until the end of time, world without end, forever and ever.
