Withhold the Fun

29 July 2019

John Siracusa, in episode 335 of ATP:

"We are trying to win on quality". And if you try to win on quality in the enterprise, that is not a winning strategy, because, we established before the definition of enterprise software, the people who pay for the software and select it are not the people who use it so your software being more desirable for users means almost nothing in the enterprise.

All that matters is: does it do the thing that I needed to do, does it check all the checkboxes for compliance and blablabla and how much does it cost?

(Emphasis mine)
