Puppet shows its hand: All your software is belong to us

In sunny San Diego, California, on Thursday, executives from Puppet, which provides tools for automating enterprise IT infrastructure, said more or less the same thing about software. “At some point, all software is going to be installed, configured, monitored, and managed by other software,” declared newly minted CEO Sanjay Mirchandani while on stage at PuppetConf 2016. “It’s inevitable.” Mirchandani was repeating a mantra uttered only a few minutes earlier by Luke Kanies, founder of the company. “We at Puppet are convinced that all software at some point will be installed, configured, and managed by other software,” Kanies said.
