“An employee manually entered a wrong number somewhere, causing an incorrect update. As a result, all combi microwaves of this type no longer work in the Benelux”
seriously wondering about their (non existing?) deployment system / devops. why would an employee decide the DEVICE FAMILY by entering a number? that’s basically asking for issues! software version for the same device family – yes, maybe, but why for completely different (and incompatible = potentially breaking) system types? 😱
if a small startup did something like this they would be out of business! it seems to me that the bigger the company, the weaker their engineering processes… smh
