System analysis took only half a day to complete. Mr. Spiegler and his team got full visibility into the upcoming project – with little or no setup effort on their side. Mr. Spiegler admits that business processes and landscape at Eissmann are quite complex. “Panaya helped us a lot to map all RFC connections and interfaces, archiving system and MIS systems. We got a good overview of system interfaces and valuable information on which transactions are used, how often and the significance of those transactions.“ explained Mr. Spiegler. “SAP standard tools do not provide that kind of holistic view Panaya Test Dynamix does,“ he adds.
Panaya Test Dynamix provided Eissmann with a predefined set of transactions (unit tests) to be tested. Correction tasks were also provided by the platform, so that the development team could apply change settings based on the automated simulation of the EHP upgrade and HANA migration. Additionally, the team employed Panaya Test Dynamix usage analysis to define the priorities of process testing.
Using Panaya’s proprietary technology, Omega™, critical processes were recorded during production by Panaya Test Center and converted into regression test scripts. All test cycles were executed using Panaya Test Dynamix.
“Without compromising on quality we were able to execute the same volume of test scripts, while saving 50% of the time for regression testing, reducing the geographically dispersed regression test cycle from 4 days to 2 days, thanks to recorded test scenarios,“ says Mr. Spiegler. “Our SAP Basis admin saved a lot of time during code fixing because he had code change ecommendations, which he copied and pasted into the development system. This phase would usually have taken two weeks and is now reduced to one week.” He adds.
Monitoring & Documentation
Progress monitoring is made easy with Panaya Test Dynamix. “Usually I have to proactively check test cases in the system,“ says Mr. Spiegler. “However with Panaya I have dashboards and monitors. It’s already there and I get visibility into what was run and the status. Thanks to Panaya, I had much better visibility and peace of mind,” he adds.
Key transactions recording enables end-to-end business process documentation, which is now being used in multiple languages for training.
