The vanguards and the functional project teams are currently using their "Data Checking" lists to validate their data that has been migrated from Voyager to Alma. As concerns are identified, they are being documented and sent to our vendor for analysis. Once the three vanguards are comfortable with their data, the teams will begin testing workflow scenarios (Mid April).

A major milestone was achieved today with the release of the Alma vanguard pre-production environment. This environment contains:
1. data migrated from each of the vanguard's Voyager databases
2. configurations according to the specifications of the vanguards
The month of April is dedicated to testing this environment. The vanguards have created a testing plan and will document the results.

The vanguard test institutions are using the month of March to develop testing scenarios for data that has been migrated to Alma and for functional configurations. These scenarios will guide the vanguards through testing when they receive their Alma pre-production environment near the end of March. The entire testing process is being documented as they progress so all of the institutions will have the benefit of their work. We are fortunate to have testing participants who are representing both their home institution and community well.
