Testing and Refinement Phase
Beta testing is your team’s first opportunity to test-drive the functionality of
your new Smart Client application. The goal of this phase is to run the application
through your end-to-end business process — and verify that all features, capabilities, performance,
security settings, data integrity and workflow meet with your expectations.
- The objective of the Testing/Refinement phase is to identify any and all issues that prevent the new application from being used successfully in production.
- Our Beta testing feedback methodology is similar to the Prototype Design Phase: frequent software releases accompanied by paper annotated
versions of the application, with multiple iterations based upon your detailed Client review and comments.
- PCA will continue to make refinements to the application until everyone is satisfied that the new application is ready to deploy into production.
