What the vendor says is best practices, or what people in the trenches say?

If option A is 2% more "efficient" than option B, but takes 10% longer to
deploy and causes 3% more SLA payouts to your customers when the added
complexity causes a whoopsie, how much more work could you have gotten done in
the time you spent in an uncomfortable meeting explaining to upper management
why the whoopsie happened?
