The best technology is also the worst...

The best technology requires the least amount of configuration, care and feeding. The worst technology requires the least amount of configuration, care and maintenance.

The idea that something is easy to deploy and "set it and forget" lures you into a false sense of security. The day that device starts causing a problem, either through it's fault or some other change elsewhere is when the stuff hits the fan.

While the payoff may be in the time saved when deploying something, the knowledge gained during that learning curve pays off later.
