Platform, including the following:
Web Server (optional component)
Common client machine with the corporate image and same browser
Waveset product version
Waveset application configurations and customizations
Resources and other integrated applications
Configure resources and other integrated applications in the QA environment to have the same general configuration as those used in the Production environment. For example, replicate Active Directory domains, organizations, groups, numbers, and the format of users from Production to the QA environment.
Also, be sure to configure integrated applications the same way in both the QA environment and the production environment, and make sure that these applications contain a copy of recent production data or very similar data.
