Now this is going to go over very well in the real world

Remonds me of that Vox Day's aphorism:

In academia there is no difference between academia and the real world; in the real world there is

From UK tech website The Register:

Unilever claims it's a 'cloud-only enterprise' – now with added OpenAI
Multi-brand consumer megacorp Unilever says it has become a "cloud-only enterprise" with the help of Accenture and Microsoft.

One of the largest and most complex cloud migrations in the retail goods industry, according to the company, will give Unilever "resilient, secure and optimised operations" as well as "a platform to drive innovation and growth."

The Anglo-Dutch biz owns more than 400 brands, which include everything from ice cream to shampoo to toilet cleaner, and is set to use Microsoft's Azure as its "primary cloud platform."

Looks like some middle-management bozo decided to jump on the latest buzzword without fully comprehending what was involved.  This will be fun to watch. Unilever is a HUGE corporation and the fallout could be spectacular. Here is a partial list of their 400+ brands from their own website. Some biggies - from Ben & Jerry's to Hellmans Mayo to Marmite and everything in between.
