I have completed the installation and upgrade for the small charity and have reached the handover and acceptance stage of the procedure. I will now explain to the small charity why the user acceptance process that is followed during the handover stage is so important.
When you install a new piece of software you will need to agree to an End User License Agreement (EULA). This is a legal agreement between the vendor and you and says how you can use the software. If you purchase it in stores then it will only be license for one. There are other licences you can get, OEM (Original equipment manufacturer) license which is for software that is purchased by a hardware supplier and comes with your computer system. Also there is a site license which is unrestricted license that allows you to install the software as many times within your organisation as you need to. Open source license is a license that not only gives you access to the software but also lets you view, modify and share changes to the source. Lastly, is freeware license which is software that is completely free to use, although sometimes there will be an optional payment.
