SAP IMPACT ANALYSIS

Impact Analysis for SAP

Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis works in conjunction with the SAP Solutions Manager’s Business Process Change Analyzer (BPCA) to assist in determining the subset of test cases that will be run according to either customer specifications or when an SAP standard update package (Upgrade, EhP, SPS) has been implemented. By using SAP BPCA with Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis, customers are able to easily identify and schedule all test cases that cover the functionality affected by any set of SAP transports.

Identification & Scheduling of Transaction-Related Test Cases

Tricentis Tosca comes with a powerful, bi-directional integration with SAP Solution Managers’ Business Process Master List (BPML). This helps to structure SAP’s functional areas down to the transactions level. BPML items held in Tricentis Tosca are embodied as risk-weighted requirements. Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis can import transport-related BPCA reports and directly identify the affected requirements and test cases that have been assigned to them.

Automated recording of Dynamic TBOMs

Static TBOMs are shipped with SAP’s standard but cannot cover any customer specific amendments. With SAP’s concept of dynamic TBOMs closes this gap— but dynamic TBOMs must be recorded by walking through the SAP system. You can effortlessly generate dynamic TBOMs by running your automated test cases in Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis’s recording mode.

Identification & Scheduling of E2E Test Cases

When dynamic TBOMs are recorded with Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis, Tricentis Tosca will directly link these TBOMs to its test cases. These may be single transactions or complex end-to-end (E2E) business chains, they may even go beyond SAP and reach out to other surrounding systems. Tricentis Tosca Impact Analysis is able to import transport-related BPCA reports and directly identify all affected E2E test cases that may even go beyond SAP.
