For months we were extremely busy: planning, discussing, reviewing, …. Backlog, priorities, SRSs – high level & detailed, design… coding, testing, and some reviews again… and now the time has come – our new release, SAP Business One 9.1 which is available on both MS SQL and SAP HANA is going through Acceptance Test .
As in every release the acceptance test is an important milestone, where external testers get to see and use the new release.
The acceptance test takes place during one week in three locations: Shanghai (China) and Bratislava (Slovakia), and in here in Israel, where a highly experienced solution & product management group is working side by side with a global support center. In addition, remote testers from all over the world take part in the testing effort.
SAP Business One is sold through business partners certified by SAP. They sell, implement, customize, support, and upgrade SAP Business One customers – this makes our partners the best testers. Test scenarios were prepared, knowledge transfer sessions conducted, documents were written, and working environment was prepared… we are ready as much as we can be!
On Sunday, May 11th, we welcomed four knowledgeable and highly experienced consultants from Italy, South Africa, Spain, and… Israel.
It’s the 4th day of testing now, for long hours they test our new release. Every day they provide they feedback and insights – so far overall – we are good – they are impressed with some new functionality – yes! The user interface can be customized! – and discover things that should be fixed…but this is not just about it…
Having here in the office such knowledgeable and experienced consultants, who really know our market and customers, is a golden opportunity for all of us to learn and improve, and start planning the next release… we collect their ideas, hear about the pain points and share with them our ideas.
Tomorrow, is the last day of testing here in Israel, our testers will leave, and we will continue analyzing their findings, trying to make SAP Business One 9.1 better and ready for our customers.
SAP Business one 9.1 and SAP Business One 9.1, version for SAP HANA are expected to be released to customers (RTC) at the end of Q2 2014. The highlights of this release are focused on the following areas: business logic and localizations, reporting and analytics, lifecycle management and support, extensibility, implementation, and simplification.
