The BST didn’t go as smooth as I hoped.
For one, the netbooks that were used for the UAT and training should have been configured properly, otherwise testers would have highlighted that they’re experiencing problems doing the test or training. Testers did not log any issue about this before. So, yeah … the netbooks weren’t configured as they should have been.
Second, the network at the client’s office was intermittent. We encountered errors when submitting the document to the system.
Geez … one really important advice. If you were to do a business simulation test, you’ve got to make sure that it’s done properly. Don’t be rushed to test your system. It should be tested when it’s ready and it must be done in the production environment. A simulation test should replicate as close as possible to the actual live system. No point testing on the staging server.
Anyway, I do not know if it’s good news or bad. Our system go live has been postponed to a later date. My team is able to deliver the system free of bugs come Tuesday. Unfortunately, the client has other plans in mind …
