During an ERP implementation, testing is a key activity that must be executed in a structured and thorough manner in order to reduce risk to the business.
Testing an ERP solution is typically complex and requires considerable skill, resources and experience not normally required for daily operations. The ultimate responsibility for testing resides with the organisation implementing an ERP system and not the ERP provider.
