Tricentis Adds New Capability for Accelerating Digital Transformation with SAP Applications
Tricentis signs agreement to acquire IntelliCorp LiveCompare: Smart DevOps software for SAP applications
Mountain View, CA — May 8, 2019 — Tricentis, #1 in SAP application testing, today announced the signing of an agreement to acquire IntelliCorp LiveCompare. IntelliCorp’s LiveCompare provides a deep analysis of an organization’s “as-is” and “to-be” SAP application environments—identifying the differences that impact business processes, system integrations, custom code, security and governance, and end users. LiveCompare is used by 100+ of the world’s leading companies to upgrade SAP applications 85% faster and 30X cheaper.
“Adopting the latest generation of SAP applications is essential for driving digital transformation initiatives—but it’s only the start,” explained Tricentis Founder and Chief Product Officer Wolfgang Platz. “Projects like SAP S/4HANA migrations are a critical component of a broader digital transformation. They enable a more rapid and continuous innovation cycle. Yet, to truly take advantage of these new platforms for innovation, enterprises need to eliminate the delays associated with deploying changes or upgrades to SAP applications.”
IntelliCorp CTO Chris Trueman continued, “Traditionally, SAP customers relied on time-consuming, error-prone manual tasks from development, testing, and operations to update their SAP applications. They were already struggling to keep up when SAP upgrades were an annual occurrence, and now that pace is accelerating dramatically. LiveCompare helps enterprises get their SAP updates up and running as fast as possible—so they can focus on taking advantage of new capabilities. We offer fast, automated insight into exactly what changed and how to accommodate those changes. This helps teams deploy SAP projects 85% faster.”
Over 100 leading companies worldwide rely on LiveCompare to accelerate SAP application updates while reducing cost and risk. Here is a sampling of customer testimonials (the complete case studies and additional success stories are available on the IntelliCorp site):
“LiveCompare ensures we’re testing the right things and spending resources in the right places. When developing a regression test plan, the data received from LiveCompare allows us to more accurately tailor each plan to an individual release. Instead of testing everything we test only what’s impacted. That has translated into a direct resource savings of 30-40%.”
– Ray Berry, Application Development Lead for the SAP platform at The Coca-Cola Company
“Bentley was able to quickly and automatically obtain essential SAP system information to speed up the upgrade project, when it would have taken months of manually scrutinizing the environment to understand its configuration, custom code and data.”
–Andy Millward, Business Analyst at Bentley
“LiveCompare enabled us to drill down and see specific differences in SAP code that would have a significant impact on our environment. An in-depth understanding of our master data and how to manage it let us know what we were dealing with, so we didn’t need to test certain things, while we were quick to identify what did need to be reviewed.”
– Kevin J. Caldecott, Senior Manager of SAP IT at Bentley Motors
“The benefits of LiveCompare reach far beyond just support packs. We also use LiveCompare for enhancement packs and version upgrades. LiveCompare has enabled us to adopt a proactive attitude to SAP change. Using LiveCompare, we can be confident that custom change introduced to our production systems will not have any negative impact.
– Frank Schmitz, Senior Manager, SAP Infrastructure at Kimberly-Clark Australia
“With the help of IntelliCorp’s LiveCompare, we were able to estimate the scope of the project more accurately and without taking risks. We decided to do it ourselves with the help of LiveCompare, and we finished it all in two months, needing only five external consultants. With these five consultants we managed to execute the whole project because LiveCompare reduced the effort by telling us exactly where impacts would be. We reduced project consulting costs by 82%.”
– Ricardo Calderon, Director of SAP at Sky
“IntelliCorp’s applications are great tools to conduct a fully automated SAP analysis to support technical and functional upgrades, support pack installations and system synchronizations…
If we didn’t have LiveCompare, we’d have to write an ABAP program to try and capture all that it can, and that would take extensive time and dollars…IntelliCorp software is flexible, well designed, and reduces the costs and risks associated with many SAP lifecycle events.”
– Art Murray, Information Services Quality Assurance Team at The Hershey Company
