As a management consultant, the most costly error I’ve observed in 2015 is choosing the wrong tool for the job. It’s an epidemic.
Choosing the right tool for the job is now a full-time job
But can you blame developers and leadership? Choosing the right tool for the job is now a full-time job. Lacking a knowledgable authority, people stick with what they know. That leads to reinventing the wheel and years worth of lost manhours.
For these reasons every software team needs a new member, ToolsOps, whose purpose is to have a shallow and broad knowledge of available tools and to recommend the right tools for developers to use.
