There has been more than one occasion

Where in the process of tracking down issues that I found the existing system had been configured wrong or producing incorrect results for ages. While the higher ups rightly blame IT for something that was configured wrong when installed and never caught during any subsequent maintenance, they have no leg to stand on for producing incorrect results. It is up to the business owners to verify that they are getting correct results from systems they depend on, and it was made obvious in a few cases that that was never done when it could be shown the wrong results were present from day one (yay for not deleting obsolete data from databases!)
