User Acceptance Testing

Definition & Overview

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a crucial step in developing software. It's the phase where we make sure that the software we've built matches what the business needs. This happens after the development but before the software goes live, and it's the last check to confirm that everything meets the goals of the organization.

During UAT, the people who will be using the software - stakeholders - actively test it. They give us insights into whether the software works in real-world situations. We create test cases and scenarios that mimic specific needs, like checking if data moves correctly or if different parts of the software work well together. We also do regression testing to make sure new features don't mess up what's already working.

Getting feedback from users is a big part of UAT. Their input helps us fine-tune the software to better fit their needs. We work together to make sure the solution is improved to handle the specific requirements of the users. UAT also includes checking if the software works on different devices and platforms to ensure it performs well.

UAT is super important. It's the last step before the software goes live, making sure it's ready to be used. It checks if the software is good to go, minimizes the risks of launching something problematic, and gives users confidence that it aligns with what the organization needs. Ultimately, UAT ensures the software is well-prepared to smoothly fit into unique work processes and situations. Learn more about Launchpad’s services here.
