The story goes like this: You are the head of technology in your company. You and your staff—a team of experienced programmers and trained tech navigators—have worked hard to pt together and functional and streamlined database for the company’s relaunch.
Your boss is anticipating great strides from you and you have done everything in your power to live up to their expectations. This also means that you have recreated the company website so that it parallels various functions and behaviors of the internal database. The launch party is Monday morning and it’s Thursday. You and your team are going live with the website and database ahead of time.
Then things start to go wrong.
When Things Go Wrong
You get a call from a different department saying that the cloud computing routine is giving error feedback. There are all sorts of glitches in everything from the pull-down menus to the web store checkout screens, and all sorts of pages buried within the complex database are giving 404 errors or linking to the wrong folders on the internal hard drives—what have you.
Now there is not enough time to retrace your steps and figure out how things got botched so badly. It’s not that your team is in actuality an incompetent band of loony toons; they truly are top-notch and cream of the crop at what they do. It’s simply the fact of human error combined with a massively complex and deep website and database that has yielded many conflicting lines of code and the like which has in turn led to more problems than anyone could have foreseen.
So what do you do?
