Alpha Testing is nothing but Acceptance testing.

So in Alpha testing the Client has to verify
The Product is developed according to their

1.Requirement and Specification.
2.SLA(Service Level Agreement) i.e Time Line
3.DRE (Defect Rate Efficiency)<0.8 DRE = DRE=A/A+B = 0.8
A = Testing Team (Defects by testing team)
B = customer ( " " customer )

If DRE <=0.8 then good product otherwise not.

If client is missing any thing and they are giving a green
signal to the product then later on if they are getting any
error then the product has to come in a new cycle again.

Alpha testing is the software prototype stage when the
software is first able to run. It will not have all the
intended functionality, but it will have core functions and
will be able to accept inputs and generate outputs. An
alpha test usually takes place in the developer's offices
on a separate system.

Alpha testing is being done by both end user and the developer.
Beta testing is done by the end user.Developer is not
present there.

Testing after code is mostly complete or contains most of
the functionality and prior to users being involved.
Sometimes a select group of users are involved. More often
this testing will be performed in-house or by an outside
testing firm in close cooperation with the software
engineering department.
