Business Acceptance Testing – When Business Cooperates with IT
Even if your system is thoroughly tested and you are sure of its quality, customer acceptance is not necessarily a formality. In theory, the customer accepts the product after the acceptance tests, which at this stage of system development should not be a problem. So much theory, in practice, things can be different. So how to make sure that your product will successfully pass the business acceptance test? You should, of course, carry out these tests – but they should be carefully planned with the relevant stakeholders in advance. Good test organization and mutual agreement on the scope, course and results of the tests can significantly increase the chances of success.
