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.
