Thu, 14th Mar 2024

Tricentis, a global spearhead in continuous testing and quality engineering, has announced the launch and availability of their new test automation solution, SAP Test Automation by Tricentis, aimed at businesses utilising SAP solutions. This Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based capability is intended to facilitate smoother handling of end-to-end transformation initiatives by testing applications virtually through hosted simulation capabilities. The release follows a record year in Tricentis's application testing partnership with SAP.

This newly unveiled solution neatly integrates with SAP Cloud ALM, providing a beneficial cloud-based test automation characteristic that augments the cloud footprint. As a SAP Solution Extension, the tool has undergone rigorous testing, validation, approval, marketing, sales, and support from SAP, ensuring an integrated and unified customer experience.

Features of the SAP Test Automation by Tricentis also include model-based, codeless, and AI-driven automation for ease of use. Comprehensive testing capabilities stretch across both SAP and third-party software systems.

SAP Test Automation by Tricentis also extends functionality already available within SAP Cloud ALM, offers zero-footprint self-managing infrastructure, scalable test execution capabilities across distributed infrastructures, and offers advanced API testing features.

Marc Thier, SVP of Application Lifecycle Management at SAP, underlined the value of cloud-based test automation in a statement: "Customers are keen on maximising their cloud footprint. To support this need, we decided to combine SAP Test Automation by Tricentis and our SAP Cloud ALM. This combination will provide a valuable cloud-based test automation feature."

The launch complements existing SAP Solution Extensions by Tricentis, such as SAP Change Impact Analysis, SAP Enterprise Continuous Testing, SAP Enterprise Data Integrity Testing, and SAP Enterprise Performance Testing. All are designed to support transformation and innovation with fast, flexible, and high-volume application testing.

In response to the new release, Lee McClendon, Chief Digital and Technology Officer at Tricentis, stated, "We are extremely proud to deliver SAP Test Automation by Tricentis to the SAP community. This release is the most recent example and testament to what our longstanding partnership and strong collaboration with SAP can achieve to support our shared customers."
