Did you know that you can access automated testing capabilities for SAP S/4HANA and other SAP solutions as part of your SAP Enterprise Support agreement – at no additional cost – thanks to the partnership between SAP and Tricentis? SAP and Tricentis offer Tricentis test automation for SAP solutions in two flavors: cloud and on-premise.
The on-premise version is based on the integration of SAP Solution Manager 7.2 and the on-premise products of Tricentis. Here are the detailed capabilities of the on-premise offering, called Tricentis Test Automation for SAP:
- Automated testing of all SAP products, with full support of UI technologies including SAPUI5, SAP Fiori UX, SAP GUI, and other Web UIs, such as those for SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Ariba solutions
- API-based automated testing of SAP products for protocols such as RFC, HTTP, REST, and OData
- Test data services to manage test data centrally and dynamically through the TTA server, including test data retrieval and updates during test execution
The test management functionality in SAP Solution Manager complements the above capabilities with:
- Test case preparation
- Test planning
- Test execution and reporting
SAP Solution Manager 7.2 is a comprehensive application lifecycle management (ALM) solution that also offers the following capabilities:
- Project management
- Business process documentation
- Change request management
- Deployment and release management
SAP Solution Manager 7.2 allows you to fully manage the lifecycle of your SAP and non-SAP solutions. It now integrates with Tricentis Test Automation for SAP and brings you automation capabilities that accelerate the delivery pace of your organization.
