Our management wants to move our development environment
to a separate domain. They say it's good to isolate it so that unauthorized users can't access the reports....?
(Maybe because no real security model is implemented in the company. All developers access all SQL Servers with "sa" account, the main financial application that we build reports for - runs under SQL Server account, no Windows Authentication whatsoever...)
So basically we will have to forget about our desktop applications and
do all the work through Remote Desktop...
I think it's a really bad idea.
i spent a lot of time of customizing my desktop
to make the development faster.
I have a lot of utility programs, scripts, my Microsoft Office is customized
and is inline with 95% of the users in our company (same version, same patches, etc. -
It is very important when it comes to exporting reports to Excel and testing them)
I feel like a really bad decision is going be made that will impact all our development work, our productivity.
I am going to talk about it with out Project Manager
but need a big "pros and cons" list to support my argument.
Any good suggestions?
