When you want to maximize the benefits of test automation in complex SAP landscape, you need to approach the beast piece by piece. These seven steps will help you conquer the impossible.
It is normal that testing consumes 30-40% of the average IT budget. Given the amount of work and stakes related to it, it soon becomes clear that manual testing simply isn’t an option anymore. Testing is routinely cited as the #1 bottleneck in delivery speed for example. The industry-average test automation rate is currently a dismal 18% overall—and another research suggests that it’s actually closer to 8% for large enterprises working with complex systems including SAP.

Software testing is the oddball in information system development. It is generally easy to estimate how long it will take and how much it will cost. Testing is also widely acknowledged to be the most important bottleneck in the software release process.
It is practically impossible to operate a rapid software release cycle without automated testing. Manual testing is too slow to keep up with the brisk pace of agile development teams. Later on, during system testing and validating integrations with other systems, both the time spent and the overall workload become intolerable.
