Is there anyway to release it in production in such a way that only hundreds of dollars are going through it? That way if it fails, the bulk of the data is still going through ‘the old way’ - whatever that is?
I recently released a new web interface into a database that already had a heavy Windows client. First release, we only entered a few pieces of data through the web interface, the rest of it went through the heavy client. Sure enough, there was a stupid glitch that exposed a gap in the testing processes, but the production data was easily fixed and we rolled on until the next iteration was ready.
