Dairy Company Cuts Testing Man-Hours by 29% with Automated Discovery for Large SAP Consolidation Project
A large dairy company was looking to streamline operations by consolidating several instances of SAP running across their organization. They were using manual testing, which was time-consuming and error-prone. They knew in order to ensure the success of the SAP consolidation project, they would have to leverage test automation. The challenge? They lacked knowledge and documentation for most of the processes they needed to automate. Since traditional methods of capturing this information would take far too long, they needed an automated solution. To overcome this, the client distributed the Worksoft Analyze Capture agent to business users across the organization. These users then performed their normal day-to-day activities with the Capture agent running in the background. Captures were loaded into Analyze, and key processes were identified and consolidated. The steps for the optimized processes were then transferred to the test automation team, which enabled them to create the end-to-end test library needed to support the system consolidation.
Automating the discovery of detailed business process knowledge by the business and test teams concurrently eliminated an expensive step in the project’s execution.
