Navigating Your Way Through the SAP Testing Jungle

The word “upgrade” has been known to send shivers down the spines of many SAP customers, especially given the historical pain, time and cost of moving to a new version of the software. Upgrades, especially functional upgrades, are resource hungry, take months of planning and require business users to take time out of their daily workloads to check the new system.

The SAP testing jungle is real and if you get lost in this jungle you need to know how to survive, adapt, and thrive in the complex SAP eco-system.

Judy Doust, Test Manager at Marston’s, explains: “Our prime objective was not to employ a huge test department. Our end users are the business users – we’ve always used them as testers and it works well for us – it saves on re-work. A system that requires IT specialism would force us to employ a team of specialist testers. We’d still need to utilise the users for the business process knowledge and there would be crossover and duplicated effort. Why perform all that work if there was another option out there?”

Join Original Software as we explore the key requirements needed for an efficient quality process for your SAP applications. A process that delivers the promised business value and one that doesn’t tie up your business users unnecessarily.
