GeneralThe importance of naming Pin

We have a system, let us call it Brian.

Brian has a Windows service that communicates between two other systems, let us call them Emma and Jim.

This service that is part of Brian has been called EmmaJim.

EmmaJim fell over today, an incident was raised, the problem was resolved.

I am responsible for Jim, Jim is my baby, I suddenly realised when I saw the incident report, the genius that the name EmmaJim was for the developers of Brian, and mentioned this to them. All anyone knew at this point was that data was not getting to Emma, and when they get told that EmmaJim had caused a problem they would assume it was either Emma or Jim that was an issue and ignore Brian completely.

Sure enough, a resolution notice went around minutes later "An issue was identified with a service within Jim".
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
