The EFS Management Information System (MIS) department routinely executes several vendor and business driven testing projects every year. The team needed a tool to manage all their testing activities. Additionally, the organization was embarking on an ongoing project to consolidate some of the operational regions.
EFS MIS did not have a test management solution to support this major event. Some of the processes were quite complex, impacting tens of SAP modules and up to 30 functional testers (out of the hundred Panaya users).
EFS MIS needed to better control the testing of changes on the SAP system and any software that interfaces with the relevant modules.
Functional Test Management & Strategy
At EFS Management Information System department, there is no dedicated testing team. Depending on the project, a different MIS team member assumes responsibility and owns all aspects of the project, including testing. Testing strategy (coverage, timeframe, key users) is decided on a per-project basis, which is extremely time-consuming.
