Discussion on: How to waste half a million dollars

I wholly agree with the core point, which I read to be about how easily opportunity cost gets neglected in software. The many “half-a-day”s lost waiting for the ops engineer to be available for questions, the half-a-days lost waiting for a configuration change, the training of new employees in your custom scripts, etc. etc. The bill may be high for a managed solution, but the hidden costs are deep for doing it yourself.
