NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Many organizations try to minimize change in production IT environments. This frequently leads to behavioral anti-patterns. One example of this is over use of code in configuration to affect the behavior of production systems. Changes that really belong in code end up in configuration files which don’t necessarily pass through the same levels of testing as the application. Streamlining the path to production and focusing on quality simplifies rather than complicate things.
