As for every service providers, IT departments are often considered as a cost to cut. Here is the ‘myth of total efficiency’ coming out (Slack – Tom Demarco).

But like Ron Jeffries says in a recent post (eXtreme Programming group): We are designing here, not laying bricks (I really love this quote!)

So no matter if you are writing new software features, looking for a bug, installing a DB cluster, designing a new high performance computing architecture, answering to an help desk call: running too much is always a bad habit and lead to many (expensive) errors.

Why? Next post!
