Tricentis, the world’s #1 continuous testing platform, today announced the release of its new SAP Testing Manifesto which details key insights on how to deliver safe, fast changes to SAP systems. Following an expanded partnership with SAP in 2020, Tricentis has identified crucial pain points for present day software testing and outlined seven key principles to help SAP users optimize their testing cycles.
“SAP testing has been too slow, too costly, and too ineffective for too long,” said Wolfgang Platz, founder and chief strategy officer at Tricentis. “Modern platforms such as SAP S/4HANA and cloud-based offerings take the speed of change to a new level, which raises the stakes in terms of business risk. We’ve reached a tipping point. It’s time to do better—or else organizations won’t be able to take full advantage of the ‘intelligent enterprise.’ ”
Today’s enterprises are prioritizing digital transformation projects to boost speed, agility, and innovation. To achieve this, they’re making significant investments in their SAP systems. However, most organizations lack the required automation to complete SAP projects with the necessary speed and quality.
Currently, 90 percent of SAP customers rely on manual testing for their solutions, and a further 44 percent of SAP users are creating new updates every day. With a growing list of SAP solutions, patches and updates to test, enterprises are being hindered by burdensome testing processes which consume time and provide a low level of risk prevention.
As SAP CEO Christian Klein stated at the company’s recent SAPPHIRE NOW event, “The times of 3-year-long IT projects are over. You need to be able to quickly react to business needs in today’s fast-changing environment. We have made excellent progress to deliver faster innovations to our customers.”
Within the SAP Testing Manifesto, organizations are empowered with information on how to speed up software testing, reduce risk and costs, and fast-track digital transformation efforts the key principles of which include:
- Embrace change or die: In every aspect, SAP is implementing ambitious cloud-focused innovation strategies. 40 percent of cloud customers are updating SAP monthly, and to keep up with their competitors, enterprises must be ready to act quickly and decisively.
- Create the right tests, not the “right number” of tests: Not all tests are created equal. The number of tests your company runs should not be a determinate of success. Keep a tight set of tests and focus of reducing risk.
- Automate strategically: Give power back to your organization through automation.Enterprises can experience the benefits of modern test automation, including increasing testing speed by 10x, reducing costs by 50 percent, and providing 90 percent risk reduction.
