tbh, I am no fan of “court-driven development”. As a decision maker I am looking for platforms with a clear strategy in the first place, as a developer/integrator/whatsoever I do not want to deal with prehistoric stuff and as a “bean counter” I am looking for the cheapest solutions that would do the trick.
It’s primarily the third category of people that we are currently facing problems with the most because in these days their voice is becoming increasingly louder. They love ELTS, as it solves their immediate problems for a price point so ridiculously low that you have a hard time selling your actual agency services.
Although I suppose that many customers will in fact understand the underlying problem, the opportunity of moving the problem out of sight with such little effort and money to invest, is simply too appealing.
