Quote from SavannahLion »
You assume all businesses maintain ideal database architecture and content? You also assume that their existing programmers can actually untangle what previous programmers actually did? It must be nice but such ideals do not exist whole hog across all companies. It's something to always strive for, sure. But it's hardly a reality for everyone.
Quote from Elostirion(again) »I'm in IT too.
Nobody's complaining about the need for a new database.
The issue is that customer history is being lost by not merging old Cust_ID's into the new system.
That's just incredibly lazy transition management and bad business practice and WotC deserves to have the egg on their tie pointed at with blinking neon lights.
