Webinar: The domino effect. Why dynamic backlog and release planning are fundamental to Continuous Delivery in SAP

Imagine the impact if your team could break the shackles of the standard SAP release cycle and safely deliver changes to the business as soon as they are ready. 

Continuous Delivery enables SAP teams to make a real business impact, but finding the right automation to support your efforts is a crucial part of the process.  

To make Continuous Delivery a reality, companies need the ability to dynamically manage release and sprint plans with confidence and clarity in order to avoid the negative knock-on effects of unexpected delays, scope changes, etc.

In this webinar - the third in our series ‘Automate your way to Continuous Delivery for SAP’ - we will explain how you can implement a flexible release strategy as you increase business agility through faster, more frequent SAP change.

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn why it’s important to implement an effective backlog, requirements and release planning process to enable frequent release and application delivery in SAP

  • Understand how to effectively manage business requirements and safely move them between releases and sprints to support the priorities of your business

  • Learn how SAP automation solutions can manage the risk, quality control and impact associated with flexible delivery so that critical business systems are not impacted

Webinar: The network effect. How the integration of CI/CD automation tools bridges the SAP delivery gap.

Webinar: The network effect. How the integration of Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery automation tools bridges the SAP delivery gap. 

Imagine the impact if your team could break the shackles of the standard SAP release cycle and safely deliver changes to the business as soon as they are ready.  Continuous Delivery enables SAP teams to make a real business impact, but finding the right automation to support your efforts is a crucial part of the process.   

As software ecosystems proliferate, the need to integrate application delivery processes across all layers is more important than ever.  In addition, end-to-end delivery processes often involve a combination of many tools across many functions, like ITSM and Agile / backlog management.  It’s critical that these tools form an integrated toolchain to provide complete visibility and enable collaboration.

In this webinar - the second in our series ‘Automate your way to Continuous Delivery for SAP’ - we will explain how you can integrate your SAP delivery processes with wider, non-SAP workflows to increase business agility through faster, more frequent change.

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn why it is crucial to bridge the gap between SAP and connected applications so that releases can be synchronized and delivered at speed

  • Understand how to create a seamless continuous delivery toolchain that allows teams to become better aligned with business requirements

  • Learn how SAP automation solutions can operate in harmony with external tools to provide the orchestration, visibility, and validation that’s required in enterprise application delivery today

    Webinar: Why Risk-based Testing for SAP is a bad idea

    Webinar: Why Risk-based Testing for SAP is a bad idea

    The demand for more frequent change in SAP systems is increasing across almost all industry segments.  Risk-based Testing has grown in popularity as businesses attempt to reduce the scope of testing required for each release, with numerous tools and methodologies now available. But, this approach struggles to efficiently deliver a satisfactory level of test coverage and may even create additional risk in business-critical systems such as SAP.

    In this webinar, we explore the history of Risk-based Testing, look at the limitations of this approach for business systems in general and specifically for SAP, and propose an alternative that dramatically reduces risk, eliminating the need for the Risk-based approach for regression testing, while increasing total test coverage and SAP release quality.

     

    Watch this session to:

    • Understand the technical complexity of proper Risk-based Testing analysis and preparation, and why it may not make sense for SAP environments.
    • Understand when and why Risk-based Testing can increase business exposure to software failures.
    • Evaluate an alternative solution that achieves greater test productivity and coverage in SAP without the liabilities and technical challenges of Risk-based Testing.

     

     

    Webinar: CBH Group explore Testimony and Robotic Test Automation, a new testing paradigm

    Webinar: CBH Group explore Testimony and Robotic Test Automation, a new testing paradigm

    Testimony, by Basis Technologies, employs new technology known as Robotic Test Automation that transforms SAP regression testing.

    CBH, a multi-billion dollar agribusiness, are exploring how Testimony can help them to adopt a radical new approach to testing that will deliver change faster without risking business continuity.  

    In this recorded webinar session, first presented at SAP TechEd 2017 in Las Vegas, Gavin Thornton from CBH Group joins Craig Oliver to discuss Testimony and the impact of Robotic Test Automation.

    Watch the recording to learn about:

    • CBH Group's SAP landscape and the testing challenges that they face
    • The unique technology behind Testimony, and how it can transform regression testing
    • The impact of Testimony at CBH Group, and the impressions of the CBH team

    Webinar: What if testing configured itself? How Robotic Test Automation will change the way you think about SAP testing.

    Webinar: What if testing configured itself? How Robotic Test Automation will change the way you think about SAP testing.

    SAP environments need to constantly evolve to support your business. However, the updates and changes that deliver your competitive edge can also cause instability.

    While testing protects your critical business processes, doing it the traditional way is disruptive, time-consuming and complex. Costs are high, and test coverage is limited. That makes it hard to keep critical business processes safe on a day-to-day basis, let alone during major projects such as re-platforming in the cloud.

    Testimony, from Basis Technologies, completely changes the game by employing Robotic Test Automation (RTA) to address the challenges of traditional methods of testing SAP software.  

    Watch this webinar recording to:

    • Learn what RTA is and how it reinvents SAP regression testing
    • Understand how Testimony can massively accelerate SAP projects, updates and upgrades
    • Explore how RTA shifts testing left and enhances DevOps for SAP
    • Hear what SAP users are already saying about this new approach
