User Acceptance Testing (UAT) | Best Testing Approach and Methodologies

User Acceptance Testing

User Acceptance Testing is the final stage that validates development and testing processes, confirming that the objectives are achieved, that the application works as expected and the system satisfies all needs.

The common challenges in User Acceptance testing include the following:

Lack of access to domain experts & business users, who understand the specific needs of end-users.
Difficulty in designing test algorithms, test environments and test planning, primarily owing to lack of relevant inputs on expected user behavior
Duplication of test processes across feature testing and user acceptance testing
User Acceptance Testing requires a multi-disciplinary team with more domain expertise than typical test teams

Indium’s QA approach is designed and executed keeping the above mentioned challenges in mind. We have the ability to staff the right resources, gather inputs from business users and clients with pre-decided templates, and build a UAT process that complements other testing processes.Our goal is to help product managers and developers spot bugs early, and test for user expectations early on in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

Indium Advantage

Indium experienced team brings certain processes to the table:

Domain Knowledge Transfer

For a robust, high quality UAT process, the key is to capture the right product knowledge from the client. Our years of experience in serving clients from many different sectors, gives us the deep domain knowledge to run a 360-degree User Acceptance Testing Process

Right Team

The need for domain specialists is critical for User Acceptance Testing. At Indium, we’ve a proven approach to ensure the right resources are allocated, with elasticity and flexibility, during the UAT phase of a project

Documentation, The Key

It is also important for a client to understand whether an exhaustive UAT Process has been run. For this, the right reporting and documentation are critical.

Deep expertise in UAT test scenarios

Indium’s expertise also lies in creating a robust test plan, based on the knowledge transfer done.

Customer Buy In

Last but not the least, for the UAT Practice especially, it is crucial to work closely with not only the Product Team on the client side, but also the business team to deliver the right user experience.
