The aim of testing is to identify and resolve errors before an IT system is put into production use. This is especially important for highly configurable IT applications such as SAP systems (e.g. SAP S/4HANA). In addition, Test Management is a key phase during both Validation and Change Management. As the pace of change in system environments continues to accelerate, this is matched by a considerable increase in testing effort. SAP Solution Manager includes a completely revised Test Suite, which is used for the electronic administration of all Test Management activities in SAP Solution Manager 7.2. Test managers can use the Test Suite to create test plans in SAP Solution Manager and assign these tests to individual testers..
Testers use the Test Suite to keep track of their pending test activities, and can also use the Tester Worklist for the direct execution and documentation of tests. Apart from manual testing, SAP Solution Manager also supports automated tests. The input for these tests consists of the test documents that have been created using Solution Documentation. Errors that occur during the test can be reported and resolved using the integrated Incident Management. An Analytical App based on SAP Fiori provides you with an up-to-date overview of the status of test activities whenever you need to check.
