CIS-Net Release 4.6: Testing Completed, Technical Deployment to Start in June


In the previous issue of our Newsletter we informed you that a major release of CIS-Net would be delivered this summer including a lot of new features and enhancements to the current interface designed to improve performance and business efficiency.

Since that time the FastTrack Development Team, the Project Team and the Key Testers have been working hard to deliver this new release.

In April the Project Team prepared a series of tests to determine whether the new interface was ready to be delivered to key testers for their tests. Some bugs and errors were identified and fixed in accordance with the recommendations of the Project Team, which were in turn based on Business Requirements previously defined and approved by societies’ Business Liaisons.

Then, what we call ‘key testers’, a group of seventeen business and technical experts, started the series of ‘User Acceptance Tests’ based on a long list of use cases. They proceeded to tests on:

  • New interface and its related functionalities
  • Thirteen requested enhancements on MWI-IPI, MWI and MWI Matching, AVI and AGM (Agreements)
  • Existing applications to check whether existing functionalities were still working correctly (what we call ‘regression tests’)

Three iterations of tests took place between April 29th and May 31st. During this period twenty six errors and bugs were identified by the key testers, fixed, and re-tested. Release 4.6 of ‘CIS-Net powered by FastTrack’ is now in its stage of final acceptance, and is ready for Technical Deployment by societies.

The Technical Deployment, upon recommendation of the CIS-Net Steering Committee, will start when you will receive the current newsletter and should be finalized by all societies by the beginning of July, enabling the official launch of CIS-Net release 4.6 to take place Friday July 5th.

Prepare to discover the new version of CIS-Net during this summer! As always, we look forward to hearing about your experience with the new interface.
