Cognizant and Tricentis Integrate Testing Solutions to Simplify and Accelerate SAP S/4HANA Implementation

  • Cognizant’s quality assurance and testing expertise and Tricentis’ AI-enabled, automated, continuous testing tools reduce enterprise resource planning (ERP) migration time, cost, and uncertainty
  • Companies will offer large enterprises a one-source continuous, automated testing solution for moving applications from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA


Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) and Tricentis are collaborating to offer an integrated testing solution for companies transitioning and modernizing critical business applications from SAP Enterprise Core Components (ECC) to SAP S/4HANA. The solution, available globally and across industries, is the first of its kind to utilize automated, AI-enabled tools for continuous testing, providing a complete set of services for modernizing core ERP applications.

The SAP S/4HANA ERP system includes built-in intelligent technologies, including AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics. It transforms business processes with intelligent automation and runs on SAP HANA – a market-leading in-memory database that offers real-time processing speeds and a dramatically simplified data model.

The breadth of innovative features, combined with continuous optimization attributes of SAP S/4 HANA, introduces changes faster and with more frequency than with the older SAP ECC. Tricentis’ AI-driven continuous testing platform automates labor-intensive tasks and has been shown to enable 10x faster testing compared to traditional methods, which helps ensure smoother releases and improve business outcomes.

Tricentis is a leader in continuous testing technology and recently announced the expansion of its strategic partnership with SAP to become SAP’s recommended testing solution. Cognizant, one of the world’s largest professional services companies, is an SAP elite Global Services partner.
