RISC or CISC in the SAAS Ecosystem…..

Came across a PR exercise from the guys around the SAAS ecosystem(Please refer the picture below)..No critical overviews but I could draw an analogy between something I learnt while working with Programmable IC’s.

RISC -"The acronym RISC (pronounced risk), for reduced instruction set computing, represents a CPU design strategy emphasizing the insight that simplified instructions which "do less" may still provide for higher performance if this simplicity can be utilized to make instructions execute very fast."

CISC -"A complex instruction set computer (CISC, pronounced like "sisk") is a microprocessor instruction set architecture (ISA) in which each instruction can execute several low-level operations, such as a load from memory, an arithmetic operation, and a memory store, all in a single instruction. The term was retroactively coined in contrast to reduced instruction set computer (RISC)."

Why is everybody trying to make a simple thing tougher, I wonder!!!!!!?
