Changing your tech stack is painful. Some companies limp along for years with things barely working, so they don’t have to change a thing. So when, in my previous position at AWS as Global DevOps Partnerships Leader, I heard that one of my customers, a NASDAQ Top-10 tech company, was making the complicated switch from a top CI/CD platform to GitHub Actions, I was immediately curious.
Why would they do it? Features? Cost? A secret handshake between executives? Given the complexities, it had to be something major, but nothing added up.
