"We've met all of our objectives and as a result the programme has given us increased confidence, strengthened our relationship with the business and provided full return on our investment"

Like many organisations that rely on SAP to support their day to day business, it is of paramount importance that they can implement upgrades and new releases of SAP quickly, efficiently and reliably.

However, the size and complexity of a SAP system leaves insufficient time for thorough end-to-end testing within SAP and the systems that interface with it, resulting in potential risk to the business.

TSG’s challenge was to build a sustainable test process, and deliver a reusable automated regression pack with high coverage that would, identify any and all unexpected test results, to give Linklaters the confidence that changes to their SAP system were risk free – prior to implementation.

With efficiencies and cost saving in mind, a test automation project was commissioned to significantly increase the use of automated testing across the SAP system. Using a three-stage model, TSG designed an approach that maximised investment and continually proved and demonstrated the solution against agreed objectives as development progressed.

The automation of SAP testing has brought huge improvements. There is less manual work and effort, resulting in a more cost effective process and an improved service to the Business.

Head of Solution Delivery - Will Hitchcock, Linklaters says; “We've met all of our objectives and as a result the programme has given us increased confidence, strengthened our relationship with the business and provided full return on our investment, plus a benefit of £125k in under a year".

Bernard Melson, TSG's Managing Director, says the complex nature of a SAP, or indeed any other BPM environment means it is frequently in need of upgrades; be it from supplier upgrades, software improvements or changes to your business needs. Read more here.
