Pronunciation

/ˈpaɪlət/

Definition

A short term project used as way to prove to a client that a proposed process and methodology will work for a longer term project.

Often, after a proposal has been made to a client, a pilot project is conducted to show the capabilities of the team and software to demonstrate how effective they will be if the client agrees to pursue a long term project with the organization. The pilot project focuses on a small portion of the client's data so that is can be completed in a short amount of time, typically between 1 week and 1 month. Business requirements, delivery formats, and connection to legacy and target databases are frequently required to complete an accurate pilot project.
