ORLANDO, FL (May 5, 2008) – Worksoft, Inc., a leading provider of solutions that accelerate deployments of SAP® applications, today announced the availability of Worksoft Certify™ version 8.2, providing enhanced support for SAP® business process functionality. The announcement was made at the ASUG Annual Conference and the SAPPHIRE® 2008 Orlando conference, SAP’s premier business technology event.
Worksoft’s flagship product, Worksoft Certify, offers a patented and unique ”scriptless” approach to functional and business process validation testing, which allows business analysts and functional users to define, execute, and maintain tests through a menu-driven interface with business language narratives.
“Significantly reducing the complexity of developing and maintaining automated tests can speed quality assurance progress and help prevent code problems earlier in the development life-cycle to lower costs,” says Melinda Ballou, program director, Application Life-Cycle Management research at IDC. “And by allowing business users to play an active role in designing the tests, organizations can better ensure that key business processes execute as expected after implementation and upgrades.”
With Worksoft Certify 8.2, users can:
- Control the dashboard seamlessly: Worksoft Certify provides a seamless control dashboard for successful implementation, for upgrades and ongoing support. Users can build, execute, and view test results of SAP processes to manage and document functional tests.
- Automate testing development with LiveTouch technology: With LiveTouch, an embedded feature in Worksoft Certify, users can automatically build completed test steps by simply clicking on the desired field or fields on the actual SAP screen. Certify captures the object information of selected fields and specifies test actions (input, verify, store, etc.) based on user customizable parameters, even populating input and validation value with data entered into or produced by the SAP screen.
- ‘Test tests’ during development: Users can interactively execute single or individually selected test steps from within the Process and Data Editor, allowing a quick way of confirming that the test process exercises
- Simplify complex repeating testing: Users can now easily select and validate specific fields from repeating pattern displays such as ME55 and ME28, uniquely defining a reference row and relative objects.
Worksoft Certify 8.2 also includes added support for Windows Vista and provides enhanced support for Web applications.
“Worksoft enables developers and quality assurance engineers to easily manage their data interactions for maximum efficiency, while also providing a high quality of security,” said Bruce Monroe, founder of Monroe Consulting. “I believe Worksoft Certify is the only automated testing tool on the market to execute projects quickly and thoroughly.”
“Worksoft is committed to the continual innovation of our testing solutions for use with SAP applications,” said Bruce Johnson, CEO and president of Worksoft. “Customers using Worksoft Certify report significantly improved testing of SAP solutions and reduced implementation times.”
Worksoft Certify provides a single integrated platform for testing business processes across the enterprise without relying on time-consuming and inefficient scripting processes. Processes that span multiple technologies and platforms, such as SAP solutions, .Net, HTML, JAVA, and even the mainframe, can be effectively tested in a single, seamless test process. Worksoft Certify’s unique “learn” feature maps each screen of the customer’s application to automatically discover all of the functions it contains, such as input fields, labels, and pull down boxes, among others.
