Will I have the chance to test out the system before it goes live in my department ?

There will be a period of training prior to the go-live date in each department, which will equip users with the knowledge they need in order to start using the system. Each department will also be involved in user acceptance testing (UAT). UAT is different from system testing – the latter ensures that the software will not crash and meets the technical requirements, but UAT is there to provide assurance that the system acceptably provides the required business functionality and that departments are happy to accept and sign off on it. In UAT, users perform tests of the system in line with what would occur in real life scenarios, using scenarios that are developed by departments themselves to accurately reflect their business processes.
