We’re going to the zoo- You can come too!
Join us the ASUG Southern California Chapter at their next meeting at the LA Zoo.
Lisa Ratajczyk and Jonathan Pearson are pleased to be leading a working session on Testing SAP ERP systems which aims to share how using new technology can minimise risk and speed up the SAP upgrade and release planning process
Living happily with SAP means working at the relationship and, in particular, that means managing the inevitable and constant change, both driven by the business and SAP. SAP ERP upgrades and routine patches are stressful enough when your environment is stable; but SAP is encouraging everyone to move into the SAP HANA and/or SAP S/4HANA house, which is another scale of project altogether.
All such changes need to be tested and validated, a process typically involving a high number of key business users as well as SAP specialists in IT. Many man-months can be spent in System Integration Testing (SIT) and User Acceptance Testing (UAT) ensuring that new capabilities will not disrupt business operation and effectiveness. Planning the tasks plus managing these resources and the test executions while simultaneously triaging every issue discovered is tough. This challenge only becomes tougher when the testers are business users temporarily divorced from their day jobs and the process must be repeated several times each year.
In this session, Original Software will share lessons from some of their SAP customers, including Marston’s and Wales & West. We will cover how:
We will also be providing wall posters which map out the steps in this journey to smooth and successful change.
Admission and full access to the LA Zoo, a visit with a bearded dragon, and admission to Zoo Lights.
