What is Operational Testing?

Operational testing is a type of non-functional acceptance testing that confirms that a product, service, process or system meets operational requirements.
Operational requirements include things such as performance, security, stability, maintainability, accessibility, interoperability, localization, backup, recovery and support documentation. Such requirements are typically developed by business operations teams who are responsible for maintaining and operating a process, system or service.
