"Can't we just automate away all of our toil?" Reducing toil is often mistaken for a linear project. The misconception is that you start at one end and refactor or automate your way to the end.

If you've worked in Operations, you know how maddening it can be to deal with repeated "known issues." No matter how routine the response is, it still chews up your time with interruptions and toil. Dealing with repetitive problems may be frustrating. However, that frustration kicks into high gear when you submit a bug report on the issue — but Dev quickly closes it. The reason? It is usually something about not having the budget or priority. And besides, "Ops has a workaround."

Tool sprawl is a fact of life in any enterprise. Over the years, tools and scripts have accumulated as you’ve solved one challenge after another. It's not uncommon to find modern tools like Ansible, Puppet, or Terraform mixed with legacy tools and a wide variety of scripts (Bash, Python, Powershell, Perl, and more).
