In this post, Pivotal’s Michael Coté, recaps a recent article on ROI that he wrote for FierceDevOps. Importantly, he poses a question that is often the elephant in the room.

In this talk from Cloud Foundry Summit 2015, the main message is—forget about tools and software for a minute and think about culture.
