Adding Containers, PaaS and Serverless to your IT Diet Plan


This industry is often filled with this notion that we have to replace one technology with another.  I can’t stress enough how misguided this is as we think about what the role of any technology is in our organizations.  The role of technology is to solve a particular challenge or set of challenges for the business.  Business could mean selling things, buying things, education, research or anything in between.  Technology of the sake of technology will most likely fail in its adoption lifecycle.

Think of IT as a Diet Plan

My favorite analogy lately is the use of diet plans to describe technology as it’s related to how we view the human diet.  Every time I hear about a fad diet, I imagine a fad technology.  Fads come and go, and don’t often replace the traditional diet.  If we do discover a new, exciting and valuable item to augment or replace part of the traditional diet, it does just that.

When kale became the next big thing as the superfood that everyone should be consuming every day a couple of years ago, the world was alight with kale smoothies, kale flakes for your spice rack, kale cooked in 20 different ways.  Did kale replace every other item on the traditional diet? No.  What it did do for us was to augment the current diet and replace some other side dishes that may not have been healthy.
