The transport’s journey: How Tricentis LiveCompare protects your SAP systems from defects
Watch to follow an SAP transport as it moves throughout the development lifecycle and see how Tricentis LiveCompare can protect systems from defects.
With the release of Tosca 15.0, we’re happy to introduce Update Service, a new capability that helps Tosca users stay current with all new updates and enhancements that we ship on a regular basis. But how does it work, and what does this mean for you?
Take the following scenario: SAP just released an update to SuccessFactors. To support these new features, there is an updated SAP engine available for Tosca. You and your team want to get your hands on the new functionalities right away to help streamline your test automation. But your high hopes come to a grunt as you soon realize that upgrading Tosca in entirety to the latest version can be cumbersome. Other teams who also use Tosca are not ready to adopt a new version.
With the new Update Service, we remove that bottleneck by enabling you to update bits and pieces of Tosca, such as selected engines or individual components, so you can apply new features more easily.
Think of app stores that let you update mobile apps in the background without bothering you. Tosca’s Update Service works in a similar way.
Enterprise technologies from ERP providers to CRM systems and different web apps are constantly improving their software with new features and updates to bring added value to customers.
Adopting new features in applications is critical to the success of any business – it can lead to improved customer retention, optimized business processes, and more productive employees. Recognizing the need for speed of change, Tricentis frequently releases new updates to Tosca’s engines to ensure our test automation keeps in line with the latest innovations of different enterprise technologies.
Take Tricentis’ strategic partnership with SAP. Our engineering teams co-innovate side-by-side with SAP to ensure Tosca’s test automation supports all new SAP releases out-of-the-box. Because we ship updates to Tosca’s SAP engines frequently, SAP automation teams can now use Update Service to apply those features faster.
We also regularly ship new updates across all technology-specific engines in Tosca from Salesforce, XBrowser, DotNet, Java, Excel, and many more, so that our customers can benefit from the latest innovations relevant to their business.
With the new Update Service, you can now easily update any one of those required Tosca engines to help you keep up with changes faster, bringing you these added benefits:
To access the Update Service capability, enable this feature during the installation of Tosca. Currently, there are two options of setting it up: via deployment automation or by creating a shared folder. We recommend the deployment automation option which makes the distribution of packages much faster and easier to configure. You can also distribute update packages using NuGet feeds.
