Overview

Destined to become your essential SAP R/3 desktop reference

Testing SAP R/3: A Manager's Step-by-Step Guide demystifies this powerful software to enable professionals to implement a disciplined, efficient, and proven approach for testing SAP R/3. Providing much needed industry guidance for companies that want to establish an automated testing framework, construct an RTM, and adhere to industry regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Testing SAP R/3 is a primer for testing SAP from unit testing through regression testing for production support.

Filled with templates, case studies, and criteria to establish a framework for SAP testing, this essential guide addresses activities that are prevalent yet poorly conducted at most SAP projects, including how to:

  • Identify the testable requirements
  • Ensure that requirements are testable, unambiguous, clearly defined, necessary, prioritized, and consistent with corporate policies or industry standards
  • Retain testing documentation to support audits
  • Define the scope of testing
  • Create a test plan and test strategy
  • Develop a strategy for acquiring automated test tools and for automating processes that includes verification at the GUI and back end layers
  • Create a library of automated test cases for production regression testing that can be executed unattended
  • Verify service level agreements (SLAs)
  • And much, much more

If you are an SAP consultant or administrator, this useful reference will become your all-in-one guide to successfully implementing an enterprise-wide SAP system throughout your company.
