About two years ago Gitlab, has had a server failure to lose data, which became a significant failure in the IT world. Gitlab experienced this failure when they were trying to test a new method of using two servers. While testing this new method, accounts from the database were removed by an automatic mechanism termed dangerous. In the process, the data copying becomes very slow, and after some while, it stopped. In addition, production data was lost during the copying process.
For any failure to occur, especially in the IT world, some project management concepts were not followed or ignored. In this case, the project managers ignored their data backing up, which is part of planning before testing the new method. If the data was backed up, they could still have access to their old data even after the loss of the data. Another project management concept that was not respected is monitoring. If the project managers monitored the process, they could have reacted immediately before further data was lost immediately after the copying process became slow. Since this concept was not followed, it led to the system failing.

As part of the steering committee, measures such as Initiation, planning, execution, and monitoring would have been followed. Initiation is the process of setting the goals and objectives of the project. Planning is another measure to be put in place, which means designing and outlining the project’s cost. Monitoring the project is another crucial concept that refers to checking on the breakdown and interruption of the project and taking action. If all these measures are put in place and followed, then system failures would be minimized.
