SAP upgrade or roll-out? It’s ok, the users will test it…. But how do you sell quality to your bosses?

In theory, investing in an SAP application brings a slew of benefits, such as reduced development costs and reduced headcount, improved functionality and features that reflect all the latest technology advancements. This results in even greater financial significance being given to your core SAP platform.

Given the added value to the business, there is also a question of who benefits more, business users or IT?

Defuse the User Acceptance Testing Ticking Time Bomb

Your Guide to Implementing a Joined up User Acceptance Testing Strategy

Software applications built, purchased or consumed in the cloud all have one thing in common, they need to be tested before going live and had at least one round of User Acceptance Testing. That means a combination of business analysts and subject matter experts must put their day-to-day work on hold, until they have finished validating that the latest application still works. What a pain, but much worse, business and commerce has to stop.

Watch the video to see how User Acceptance Testing can be made simple and part of a joined up test strategy.

How to Handle HANA

Migrating to S/4 HANA – It’s a big project.
Why? Because every time you introduce a new module almost all of the rest is impacted and requires (re)testing and it will be like starting from scratch again and again.
