hitko25891yI feel you, my boss (who's also the product owner) is constantly coming up with these "great" features we have to implement, they take ages to implement because they affect core app services (like access control or billing), and in the end, no one ever uses them, not even that "one big client" the boss kept talking about to justify implementing it.
Thanks for the information.
PepeTheFrog1140365dHaha jesus that hits home.
I remember my team and I in a previous company worked 2-3 months on a big feature to counter various RF interferences on the field for a given system.
When I went for field testing, I collected data based on a procedure I devised to test the claims of stakeholders: the system was performing poorly while there were interferences.
Getting back home, I analysed the data and came to the conclusion that while the feature worked as expected, the data was inconclusive to determine whether enabling this feature would increase the system's performances or if it was even necessary in the first place.
When I presented this to high management, they were happy about the results and just celebrated the conclusion. I just gave up trying afterwards.
G4nin0143327dWe have no quantative gathering of data for our product at all. Sometimes we get these bugs that makes me belive it is the first customer that ever used the function. Several features are probably unused. We have no way of knowing
Fuck gathering personal data but can we atleast get something...
