Now I wonder after seeing the results of something not having the resources to test completely, are they going to consider raising the budget for next year realted to QA, or just blame the homeowner since they had nothing to do with it except own the house?
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
This probably wasn't something that QA could be expected to find. If they didn't even know this old application was still in the production system, you couldn't have expected QA to have it in the test environment. ... unless they had been testing on the production environment. I would say this is more of an IT department issue for having this old application still available.
