Thanks to Panaya, Cepsa was able to upgrade on time with zero risks and zero defects. Their entire HANA migration from planning to go-live took only six months.
Panaya helped Cepsa scope the plan to test only affected areas. By running the impact analysis, they were able to plan the migration and manage the outside testers. As a result, they identified 8,690 objects that were out-of-scope. This saved 15,045 hours over the course of the project.
Panaya helped Cepsa keep their domain knowledge in-house. Data wasn’t owned by external suppliers, but rather Cepsa. This makes it easier for them to be prepared for their next migration. “Panaya helped unify all of the processes and test cases in a single, reusable repository,” said Poncet. “It’s not in an Excel file, it’s in Panaya and everyone can access these particular processes.”
By organizing and centralizing data, hours were saved simply by avoiding tedious data collection and cumbersome reporting. By using Panaya, Cepsa and its outside contractors were able to ensure that everything that needed to be tested was.
