  • Have you suffered from a botched migration of thousands of users to a new service?
  • Does your company rely on a computer that, if it died, can’t be rebuilt?
  • Is your network a fragile mess that breaks any time you try to improve it?
  • Is there a periodic “hell month” that happens twice a year? Twelve times a year?
  • Do you find out about problems when your users call you to complain?
  • Does your corporate “Change Review Board” terrify you?
  • Does each division of your company have their own broken way of doing things?
  • Do you fear that automation will replace you, or break more than it fixes?
  • Are you underpaid and overworked?
