Avo for SAP

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

The smooth functioning of SAP applications is crucial to business continuity. Poorly performing apps will cost companies productivity, customer experience, and revenues. Learn how Avo Assure, an AI-augmented software test automation solution helps you ensure your mission-critical applications continue to perform as expected.

The packaged application space continues to evolve. Enterprises that depend on SAP for their mission-critical applications must stay current with these changes to deliver the desired outcomes. Add to this various business and technology initiatives, like digital transformation or cloud migration, the complexity of smoothly functioning SAP applications manifolds.

Manual testing is slow, arduous, and erroneous and can’t match the pace. Low-code test automation was an option until now, but it fails to make the cut either.

What’s the Challenge

The top reasons why SAP testing requires no-code automation are:

The three primary reasons that necessitate test automation for Oracle applications are:

Longer Test Creation Cycle

Developing an SAP-specific test automation framework with manual testing or low-code test automation solution is time-consuming as they require scripting. They are also tedious and costly owing to the training requirement and the constant availability of necessary skillset.

Insufficient Risk Coverage

Most test automation solutions cater to specific applications and do not offer test automation coverage to all the applications in an end-to-end business process. Given that SAP applications integrate with other apps like Salesforce, web, mobile, Mainframes, Oracle, and more, testing across these touchpoints becomes crucial. This means various test automation solutions for specific apps, their skillset availability, and associated cost overruns.

Laborious Maintenance

The lack of reusable test cases repeatedly burdens the team with the creation of test scripts, resulting in increased effort and delayed delivery. Identifying a minor code, analyzing its impact, and testing it affects productivity.

We have the solution

Avo Assure – an intelligent, AI-driven, no-code test automation solution enables you to test SAP applications with a few clicks. Its heterogeneous capabilities help you test diverse applications like SAP, web, mobile, Oracle, mainframes, Salesforce, and more. This means your QA experts can test end-to-end business processes without writing a single line of code. Together, the no-code and heterogeneous capabilities help teams achieve end-to-end test automation and continuous testing.

How Avo Assure Delivers the Promise of True Quality

Test Creation with Prebuilt Test Libraries

Test creation, as mentioned earlier, is one of the most time-consuming steps in SAP testing. The computer vision-based Design Studio lets you visualize your entire testing hierarchy, making designing and updating test cases straightforward. This bird’s eye view further simplifies test maintenance.

Avo Genius, a (beyond) smart recorder, helps automatically create test scenarios as you navigate web applications. It offers data parameterization and the flexibility to pause recording and edit test steps on the fly. The Design Studio and Avo Genius work in synch – as you navigate through the screens using Avo Genius, Design Studio generates respective modules.

SAP Test Accelerator Pack, one of Avo Assure’s unique offerings, is tailor-made for SAP and makes testing a breeze. SAP Accelerator pack is a prebuilt library of SAP test cases. This library caters to a plethora of SAP transaction codes (T-codes), so you can focus on automating testing for just the customizations.

The SAP Test Accelerator covers test cases of core modules like Sales and Distribution, Material Management, Production Planning, and Finance, including over 150+ T codes, which make up about 350–400 test cases. You can also test 25+ end-to-end SAP business processes like Quote to Cash, Order to Cash, Make to Order, Make to Stock, Procure to Pay, Record to Report, and more. This Accelerator pack fast-forwards your test creation effort by 70% since you create tests only for customizations.

Smart Execution

While Avo Assure’s no-code capability reduces test execution to a few clicks, its parallel execution further expedites testing. It enables you to run tests in parallel on a single VM or multiple VMs simultaneously. It also helps you decide the most optimal path for execution based on your available infrastructure.

With Smart Scheduling, you can schedule execution during business and non-business hours, thus making the most of 24 hours. This further improves test efficiency.

Achieve scalable test execution as required on any cloud platform with the Elastic Execution Grid.

The CI/CD integration ensures a continuous feedback loop between developers and testers and helps achieve continuous
testing. Shorter regression cycles owing to no-code capabilities contribute to bringing production defects significantly.

Test Maintenance

Avo Assure enables the reusability of test cases saving time and effort. With Upgrade Analyzer, you can identify the piece of code that has undergone a change and test just that. This is especially useful when larger applications requiring tedious analysis to identify code change are involved.
