SOX actually made my life a little easier. I no longer have to argue with a bunch of people about locking down the Production Servers. I no longer have to listen to interminable dribble and explain over and over about why I don't believe Developers should have anything other than Read Only access to the Production Servers, if that.
Now, I have a "3" word reason that they can't argue with. "It's the Law". Period. End of Story. Next problem please. And, oh yes, take your whiney hiney and your boss' gotta-have-it-now-'cause-I-dunno-how-to-write-a-schedule PITA attitude down the hall and put your cruddy, performance challenged, inaccurate, untested, POS code through a code review and some decent Unit and UAT Testing before you give it to me for promotion to Production. Make sure you have a backout plan, too, sonny. 😛
BSOFH on SOX steroids :hehe:
p.s. That goes for your bloody undocumented, just-as-performance-challenged GUI code, too! 😀
