Take Control of your ERP Deployments

What does ERP Cover?

Make testing of ERP deployments more efficient from a time and cost perspective with assistance from TestPro. We can apply our experience to make your testing more effective, achieve better quality and reduce cycle times. Our ERP testing skills cover both functional and performance testing.

TestPro ERP Project Experience

We have experience across a number of ERP implementations including clients such as BOC, Fairfax. AMP, University of Newcastle, University of NSW, Davids Limited, Metcash and George Weston Foods.

ERP Testing Strategies

The best strategy is selected after a review with the client and depends on factors such as project timelines, business objectives, testing budget and more.

With ERP applications such as SAP, PeopleSoft and Oracle, there are a variety of testing strategies which address a range of different business contexts and requirements.

Strategy 1: Test and Focus where there are high areas of risk

Any application testing should focus on identifying and testing the most important and high traffic areas as a matter of priority. This approach reduces the risk of problems pertaining to critical core system processes and BAU functionality. With regard to ERP deployments, typically the areas of high risk are where customisations have been performed and where new business processes have been implemented.

Strategy 2: Test the most important defects first!

Most important means often “in the most important business functions”. These functions can be found by analysing how every function supports the mission, and checking critical functionality doesn’t contain any defects. Focusing early on the worst areas in a release and testing them more helps reduce risk.

Strategy 3: Test to a defined quality level or baseline

Most releases are not expected to be completely free of defects and not every function needs to work. Sometimes, you have options to release with a lower quality and/or reduced functionality, which means you can cut down testing in less important areas.

Strategy 4: Automate Testing to Improve ROI

Major efficiency is achieved by automating test execution. TestPro has vast experience in automation as well as Automation Frameworks which can implement automation for ERP projects without the overheads related to manual testing. Automation Frameworks make testing ERP updates and patches a relatively simple process. The most important tests are run by a Automated Framework and are quickly and simply run at any time to validate functionality.

SAP Enterprise Software

TestPro has the experience to assist you with a SAP implementation to make the testing of the deployment more time and cost efficient.

We offer a range of solutions for SAP deployments and upgrades, from Test Management, Performance and Load Testing, Test Automation solutions and Manual Testing.

SAP implementations can provide significant challenges and most organisations customise SAP to some degree. Also, by adding specific data sets, company and product codes, small configurations may cause performance and functional issues.

These configuration plus standard setup issues can lead to performance problems. Many installations also need to regression test regularly due to patches from SAP.

TestPro has the skills and experience to assist you to test the various aspects of an SAP implementation in a time and cost effective manner. We blend our rich experience in managing and executing testing projects for SAP implementations. These are generally:

  • More efficient (from a time and cost perspective) and
  • More effective (test more thoroughly in the available time to achieve better quality)

We can assist you to:

  • Standardise your their approach to SAP testing and create and manage test assets strategically, making them consistent and reusable
  • Create a set of reusable test components that will simplify regression testing for future SAP releases
  • Verify the performance of your SAP system under a different load and stress conditions. See the IBM whitepaper on load testing SAP ABAP Web Dynpro applications
  • Consolidate the project test artifacts i.e. tests plans, test cases, test scripts and defects into a Testing tool such as HP Quality Center
  • Implement and integrate quality processes through the BluePrint, Realisation and Implementation phases of the SAP project.

TestPro practitioners are experienced with leading test automation tools and frameworks. We understand how to implement automation for SAP projects with minimal overhead and provide large gains compared to manual testing.
