As I already pointed, either this quality of the service is satisfying for them bringing enough money and they will not change anything or they will collapse and bankrupt eventually.
Talking about banks: do you mean that the banks and other big web services have better IT staff than waze?
Well, maybe they calculated their businessmodel with assumptions for the needed processingpower that really were a bit on the optimistic side. That is NOT a verdict over the quality of their staff; these are uncharted waters, after all (pun intended). Meaning that it has never been done before, that it never worked on a scale like that, that noone ever got this far and came back to tell about it.
Shit happens. But if it is clear that a path taken does not bring you where you want to go, it is time to reroute. And that is where the staff can shine: taking us boldly where no man has gone before. (I am so sorry that all my metaphores are somehow mapping-related!)
