Working on a large, complex project over a year in duration and made up of over 100 resources, requires special considerations when developing overall QA strategies and test plans. This presentation provides attendees with insights based on a $70 million PeopleSoft implementation with additional components including business intelligence reporting and a data integration hub. Tasked with third party validation through managing the test effort for the project, Shaun Bradshaw acted as QA Architect to provide the test strategy and planning for the implementation vendor’s customization and development efforts. Shaun will discuss the real-world experience he gained including how to prepare, communicate, and manage the QA effort for such a complex project. He also shares the obstacles and challenges he and his team had to overcome to deliver as smooth an implementation and go-live as possible.
