The transformation of environment refers to the integration of existing systems that are separate or in different locations. While migrating, it is possible to transfer individually picked data and certain applications to the new system. Business processes can be renewed during the transfer — it is common to focus on processes most important to the organization’s business. The migration is often implemented in stages which requires continuous testing and corrective measures.
Test automation can be based on the same critical business process review as in the Green and Brownfield options. When core business processes are renewed and transferred to a new system, it is important to be able to ensure data integrity and functionality of the processes — data migration is not a one-time operation.
Automation unleashes its full potential when tests are automated and regression testing is performed on numerous E2E processes. Multiple and frequent testing work demands automation, which saves a whole lot of time and man-hours. When tests can be performed whenever needed, it is easy to get accurate feedback on errors and solve problems quickly. With test automation running multiple tests efficiently, the business runs smoothly and the transition to SAP S/4HANA is successful.
With the number of cloud-based ERP systems rapidly growing, manual testing needs an increasing number of resources. Robot-based test automation is the solution — a whole lot of time is saved when robots do the testing work for you.
It takes a lot of prep to migrate to SAP S/4HANA. It is important to secure the quality of the current SAP environment before deploying the new one. This is where the challenges of quality assurance in the SAP environment and the opportunities that test automation offers become most clear.
