User acceptance test criteria provides a project team with valuable insight as to how well the project solution meets the expectations of the business stakeholders.

Unfortunately for many project efforts, this valuable information is created too late in the project’s lifecycle to uncover gaps in the business requirements and the therefore the project solution being built.

Learn why the creation of User Acceptance Test Objectives prior to finalizing business requirements will help uncover requirement gaps and as well as end product expectations that may actually be out of scope for the project.

Participants will learn how to guide the project team through the right level of definition for future user acceptance tests and use this knowledge to close the gaps in requirements that are likely to be missed until much later in the project.

In this 1 hour live in-depth Webinar participants learn about concepts for:

  • Utilizing transaction Inputs and Outputs to clarify the types of processing that will be performed once the project solution is implemented
  • Describing acceptance test objectives and mapping these to business requirements to drive out clarity and completeness of currently documented need statements
  • Creating the foundation for producing in scope detail test plans and test scripts to be executed during the later testing phases of the project

Medium and large organizations are challenged to rapidly build, test, and operate always-on services. Our teams are feeling the effort when schedules are short, budgets are tight, standards are few, and much of this is new technology!

Find out how Franklin American Mortgage, Emma, Velos, Sportsbet, Sprint, Tribal DDB, PepsiCo, AMD, and NTT Verio succeed with open source test technology and methodology as a more affordable and flexible option to the proprietary test vendor.

This 1.5 hour Management or 2 hour Technical Webinar features Open Source Test (OST) including Selenium, soapUI, HTMLUnit, JUnit, TestMaker, dynaTrace, Glassbox, Spring, Collabnet TeamForge, and continuous integration tools.

At the Workshop you will learn how these tools were made to work together. For example, repurpose a Selenium test into a data-driven load test. Then learn how to analyze service interdependenices and their resource usage by viewing the application’s PurePath using dynaTrace. Look inside your Java enterprise application using Glassbox. Then integrate the solution into your continuous integration environment.

Special focus on the presentation for
PMs CIOs and CTOs
