“With Worksoft process mining, companies will be able to achieve 100% regression test coverage for the vast number of SAP business process paths performed in their enterprise, because it extracts every historical data flow based on user behavior. It’s a significant accelerator,” said Shoeb Javed, chief technology officer, Worksoft. “The capability to automatically create business process knowledge, documentation and functional testing assets can dramatically accelerate ROI and time-to-value for initial test automation,” he said.
Worksoft process mining initially supports key SAP components in the SAP ERP application including sales and distribution, materials management and warehouse management, and works with Worksoft Analyze automation software.
“In the digital age, savvy companies seek to extract the maximum value from data encapsulated in their enterprise systems. This is especially true for core business process and transactional data,” said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC’s Application Lifecycle Management and Executive Strategies Service. “Large enterprises can greatly benefit from data mining and historical analysis that can help them quickly understand their business, generate analytics, optimize processes, and more rapidly produce test automation portfolios to help accelerate their success,” she said.
In addition, Worksoft process mining will be valuable for system integrators or business process analysts looking to jumpstart their understanding of a company’s business processes running in SAP software for optimization or functional testing initiatives. For companies migrating to SAP S/4HANA® or implementing SAP software upgrades, Worksoft process mining also enables fast and efficient comparison of SAP’s published best-practice process paths with a company’s current business practices.
