Some problems never go away, but some get easier over time. As this next article “Microsoft Authentication Library 4.54.0 Supports Managed Identities” describes, using the latest version of Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL) for .NET makes managing credentials and the code required to do all of that much simpler.

I also suggest this LinkedIn article, “Azure – Service Principals v/s Managed Identities” that goes over the differences between service principals and managed identities.
Most people don’t understand tech culture. I was talking with another executive about the recent layoffs for tech workers, and he seemed to think there were a lot of opportunities to hire top talent. I know that if you don’t have a tech culture, it will not happen. The person who wrote the WSJ article titled “Not a Tech Firm? Snaring Top Laid-Off Tech Talent Won’t Be Easy”, gets it.
No kidding! A new report states that “75% of Data Breaches Involve Human Error, Annual Verizon Report Says”.
