Dear colleagues: Thanks for all your useful information, in this time I would like to ask about the recommended period of time to test a new system (Financial area) to be put in Production mode. I know this completely depends on the kind of system as well as the volume of data which will be managed but talking about a financial system where we have lots of transactions and data I think the recommended time to test would be from 4 to 6 months but I am not quite sure. Considering a system which is in production, it is recommended to use the one which is new parallel in order to catch the errors, isn´t it? I´ll appreciate your answers as well as your comments. Thanks!

    There is going to be no hard and fast rules, 4 to 6 months may seem like a long time but when you might be talking about a product that needs to please LEGAL / RETAIL / IT / Compliance teams this is not that long at all. Design Proving Proof of concept User Acceptance testing / Training Production LIVE at any of these times in the life cycle from choosing a product to LIVE the product can be deemed wrong. Some processing may take less time and others will take allot longer. It all depends on the company testing the software and the people involved. Remember you WILL find faults it is just how effectively you can work out if they are a show stopper or just a change of process. User acceptance and training can take a while or not very long. But train and test to the lowest denominator. This will mean that everyone understands. Importantly if the product is wrong - try and find out early and stand up and say so before to much time is spent on the wrong product. If it is a product that is going to be created or tweaked for you then expect this to take a bit longer to complete after going live. There will always be something the was missed or not asked for. I know there are no hard and fast rules I just hope that what I have just typed came across well. Good luck
