The 2015-16 World Quality Report
finds that business transformation initiatives are limited by testing capacity, and that despite some growth in budgets, we’re challenged with working smarter to deliver better quality for less effort. The report states that over half (54%) of respondents have adopted agile development environments, however the main challenges of time, cost and effort remain the same.
Below we outline three strategies used by our customers to adopt better testing methodologies and a continuous delivery approach.1
– Finding a way to integrate applications seamlessly is crucial to DevOps. Tony Auriene, CEO of Elucidation Technologies
states "The next steps in SAP testing innovation must continue to focus on risk based testing and tool integration.” By integrating tools such as IntelliCorp’s LiveCompare into your HP ALM and SAP environment, you can achieve zero production defects. 2
– We want to automate more of the change cycle, not just our test scripts. Why waste time manually assessing the impact of change on systems? How do we know that impacted functionality is even testable? Software such as IntelliCorp’s LiveCompare
allows companies to reduce the scope of SAP testing by 85%. "This is something that was really important to me and the team in my former role. Some of our transactions took weeks to test,” explains Tony. 3
– The World Quality Report cites security as being the number one priority for QA and testing executives. Pressure to release new functionality faster can lead to incomplete security checks and this can result in significant consequences for the business. By integrating software into your HP ALM and SAP environment, you can protect critical data from unauthorized access and ensure compliance with rules and regulations. "The ability to quickly understand who has access to your systems and what they can do is vital if you want to protect the organization and its data,” adds Chris Trueman, CTO at IntelliCorp. "As part of a secure and stable systems development approach, many of our customers use LiveCompare to enforce secure coding standards, implement automated security checks, and analyze end-user provisioning.”
