i am actually a small business owner in the UK. I currently have someone inhouse building an interactive web based floorplner for people to use.
The basic floorplan, which in all fairness is very detailed, is taking a long time to build however one of my gravest concerns is after it is built..
For example, should we decide to add a new feature at a later date, how can we ensure that it wont stop another previously feature working?
Also, if the guy does leave my office, how can i ensure i have all the correct fields and that another person can use it?
i have a mysql database built to use as a crm by an offshore company and every time they upload something new, something that previously worked, stops working and it drives me mad so i cant begin to imagine what it would be like if this happens for a complex flash/java wrriten application especially if the guy leaves.
Thanks in advance
