Perfection vs. Deadlines
Software typically has errors. Developers try to search thoroughly for defects, but they need to know when their efforts become unproductive. Please respond to the following:
- What characteristics of the new or updated business information system would indicate that it is ready to move from development into production?
- What other factors that might influence your decision?
- Demonstrate how you would apply these criteria in a specific scenario. Do not repeat an example from the textbook or one that has been posted by another student.
In academia, facts must be verified and opinions supported, so offer a rationale that includes something you’ve learned this week. Include references as appropriate, but do not quote or paraphrase.
Discussions are an important part of your learning. Share your thoughts, suggestions, and questions with your classmates and learn from theirs. Interact just as you would in a traditional classroom. Post your initial response by Wednesday. Then, return on a couple of other days to interact with your classmates in substantive posts that further the discussion.
