One of the many reasons developers cannot simply be "let loose" and develop what the enterprise needs, is because the developers do not know or even care what the enterprise needs.

Most want to create. And yes, create with the tools they want to work with and build the systems how they want. Unfortunately, you need much greater understanding of the organization before they will simply be capable of producing what the enterprise needs.

On the other hand, the enterprise managers should be the ones that understand what the enterprise needs.

A better fix would be improved communication between the devs and managers. If the devs want to build the system with different tools, the burden should be theirs to convince management of the benefits, and how they will mitigate risks.

Management is after all, the group funding these projects and responsible for the risk.
