Hiera can do anything

I have been meaning to write this Blog post regarding using Hiera as sort of an ENC for a very long time but I have never got round to it. Until On a recent trip to Melbourne I suffered from jet lag so finally got round to writing it. I believe that the best solution to a problem is normally the simplest one. For example I recently did some work for a client and will use the solution to highlight a way of driving everything from Hiera and the date we lookup for it.
