Robert Steele: Palantir – Enough Already

IO Impotency

I keep hearing about people buying into Palantir as a “solution” for past mistakes. I do not recommend Palantir to anyone, and certainly not to multi-billion dollar companies that ought to know better.  The best advice I can give any major company thinking about its sad existing IT infrastructure is this: first get the truth on the table, and then lead an industry-wide open source solution. The people who created the legacy mistakes are not the people that are going to admit their mistakes, nor are they the people best qualified to clean house and start over.
