Testing the Waters of Workday Implementation within Higher Education: Sunil Sah joins FST as Testing Lead

Now that the second round of Customer Confirmation Sessions is over, the FST team is working on the end-to-end tenant build. This build will be   completed by the end of August, and then testing will start in September of   this year and will last through April of next year.

 With this new project stage almost upon us, the FST team wanted to hire a person with extensive experience in testing system builds to lead the team focusing on this aspect of the implementation. Sunil Sah turned out to be the best person for the job. His experience includes serving in similar roles to what he will have here at UVA as Testing Lead for the project.

Sunil was immediately enthusiastic about joining the UVA FST Team. "I’ve wanted to be a part of implementing Workday Financials at a place of higher education for a while!” He says. “And I was excited by the chance to do so at a reputable University like UVA." Though he knows he will have to hit the ground running with testing coming up so soon.

But what will Sunil do as Testing Lead?

"I will be overseeing test preparation and will facilitate/coordinate testing sessions,” he explains. “I am also in charge of building and leading the team that will work on these activities. I will be collaborating with them and with other workstream leads, other members of the project team, and of course, with testers.”

Outside of work, Sunil stays quite busy. He loves 
to spend time with his family, especially his three-year-old son. 
He is also an outdoor enthusiast and travels often. When he has the
 time, he participates in varied athletic activities like cricket, 
badminton, volleyball, and bicycling, but he also enjoys 
volunteering and giving back to his community.
