Panaya Launches Enterprise Edition of Cloud-based SAP Testing Platform

Panaya, a provider of ERP solutions, has announced the Enterprise Edition of their cloud-based SAP (News - Alert) testing solution.

“We have seen phenomenal adoption of our SaaS-based SAP testing solution, with more than two hundred enterprises counting on Panaya SaaS (News - Alert) to automate the testing of their mission-critical ERP systems,” said Yossi Cohen, CEO at the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company. “This vote of confidence has enabled us to significantly expand our testing offering, allowing SAP organizations to slash the costs associated with labor-intensive and often-ineffective manual testing practices, while seamlessly operating within their established testing infrastructure and methodologies.”

The new version is intended for large businesses that already use SAP testing. Users can write scripts to automate the process of running tests without the need for programming experience. These scripts can either be run automatically or interactively with step-by-step logging. They will also automatically adapt to any changes in the configuration of the SAP system without the need to be rewritten.

Tanaya has already amassed a library of over 100,000 test scripts culled from over 200 organizations worldwide.

The Enterprise Edition also integrates with Panaya's other products, including their Support and Enhancement Packages, as well as with HP Quality Center, in real time.

Customers can also integrate the Enterprise Edition with their existing SAP testing workflows.

Tanaya's customers seem impressed with their product. One of them, Entegris (News - Alert), has already created 2,000 test scripts with the Enterprise Edition.

“Panaya's solution is so simple to set up and manage that we don't need to count on external consulting services for test automation," said Don Knutson, Director of Enterprise Business Systems for Entegris. “One of the key benefits we realized from the Panaya Testing solution was that we can reuse all the test scripts we built for our SAP upgrade project for future projects.”

“Testing costs amass to nearly half of overall SAP application maintenance costs,” said Derek Prior, Research Director of Gartner (News - Alert). “Reducing these costs while containing the risk involved in frequent business and technical changes is a major concern for IT SAP Managers. Test automation tools typically address only a fraction of the required testing scenarios following such changes because they rely on programming expertise, leaving the remaining scenarios to manual, labor-intensive testing. SAP and testing managers should evaluate complementary impact analysis and testing solutions that can address their vast manual testing needs without increasing the burden on scarce programming resources.”
