SAP Digital Transformation Requires a New Approach to Testing

White Paper

Given the increased complexity and pace of modern SAP application delivery, testing teams are pressured to deliver fast, business-focused feedback on the risks associated with software releases. Yet, as the latest SAP advancements are adopted, it’s proving increasingly difficult for software testing to keep up.

Testers face a number of challenges:

  • Automated tests architected for previous generations of SAP platforms must be rebuilt.
  • Existing testing processes don’t suit the new faster (and more fragmented) release cycles, with different components evolving at different speeds.
  • Within the SAP ecosystem, testing must address new technologies such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, and SAP Hybris.
  • Reinvented business processes commonly extend beyond the SAP ecosystem, including APIs, mobile, mainframes, and so on—but legacy testing approaches often do not.

Failure to address these critical questions could put SAP digital transformation projects at risk. It’s clear that conventional software testing approaches, built for prior generation of SAP applications, simply can’t keep up with today’s agile and distributed SAP applications environment. But what’s required instead?

Read this paper to learn about the key capabilities required for a modern SAP testing solution.
