Panaya, the largest ERP testing and upgrade automation SaaS provider, has expanded its cloud-based quality suite for SAP ERP with an end-to-end solution that automates the upgrade of SAP ECC 6.0 systems to SAP ERP Enhancement Package (EHP) 7.
EHP 7 is SAP’s latest enhancement package and the first to support SAP ERP running on SAP HANA, SAP’s in-memory computing platform. SAP ERP EHP 7 features new business functionality, increased performance, and breakthrough analytics.
The Panaya solution uniquely automates SAP ERP EHP upgrades, reducing the project’s risk and effort by 50% or more. It employs patented change impact simulation and data mining to pinpoint – in advance of the upgrade – what functionality will break, how to fix it, and what to test. Impact simulation is also provided for the SAP Business Warehouse (BW) systems integrated to the ERP system, delivering full visibility into the impact of the upgrade in the SAP ECC landscape. Panaya further provides IT and business users with tools to manage and accelerate manual testing to complete the project at a fraction of the cost.
“Panaya helped us identify the impact of our SAP ECC EHP upgrade on our ERP and BW systems - enabling us to execute a smooth and risk-free go-live across our systems,” said Maree Guise, SAP Business Solutions Team Manager at Christchurch City Council.
“We remain committed to enabling our customers greater agility in adopting functional and technical innovation from SAP”, said Oren Ezra, Vice President of Product Marketing at Panaya. “Enhancement package 7 is packed with new functionality that many of our customers are looking to implement to support their business needs. And with Panaya, they have peace of mind in upgrading their SAP ERP systems – safely and cost effectively – to keep current with and leverage SAP innovation.”
Panaya's software-as-a-service helps companies that use SAP or Oracle EBS reduce 70% of their upgrade and testing risk and effort. Panaya simulates the upcoming upgrade, automatically pinpointing which custom programs will break as a result of the upgrade and automatically ﬁxing most of these problems. Panaya's testing solutions dramatically expedite ERP testing and eliminate the need for manual test script maintenance. Seamlessly capturing business knowledge in the background, as users work with the ERP applications, Panaya automatically generates plain-English test scripts that are rapidly executed and continually self-adjust based on test results.
Panaya serves thousands of customers in over 60 countries worldwide through its offices in the USA, Germany, Israel and Japan.
