This event will focus on Modern ABAP versus Legacy – Writing Testable Code.
Looking at the current state of ABAP development; what new tools, frameworks and methodologies are released or on the horizon; what the future looks like for the road to S/4HANA for ABAP Development.
Join BP and Intellicorp and hear How BP Use Smart Technology for Custom Code Management.
It is common for organisations to customise their SAP systems, aligning processes to business requirements – but at a cost – in the initial development and also in the maintenance effort for years to come. In this session, learn how BP use technology to keep track of their code, analysing the quality and performance in a central location with a comprehensive dashboard. Ian Stubbings from BP will explain how they use technology to govern transport naming standards in order to manage multiple inflight projects and how they analyze custom code usage to ultimately remove unwanted code from the systems.
This session will explore how to answer questions about our ABAP code automatically:
- What custom code do we have?
- What is being used? What isn't being used?
- What is the quality of our custom code?
Paul Hardy an SAP Mentor and ABAP Development Specialist will be delivering a live webinar on Unit Testing / Test Driven Development.
The unit testing framework inside ABAP is the best thing since sliced bread, but it is used by virtually no ABAP developers. SAP have responded with an Open SAP course on the subject but even people taking that are still dubious about the value of the tool.
One of Paul’s main (self-appointed) tasks in life is to convince as many developers as possible this really can improve the development process and bullet-proof custom programs. He will take you through the presentation he gives to people within his own organisation, as well as to SAP Conferences, to explain to you how ABAP Unit and test driven development can improve the quality of your work starting from tomorrow. He will also try to demolish the most frequent objections to the whole unit testing concept.
Mahadevan Venkata from SAP will present ABAP Programming Model for SAP S/4HANA.
Learn more about how the ABAP supports application development in SAP S/4HANA. You will understand how ABAP language has evolved to support modern technologies. You will be introduced to Eclipse, SAP’s strategic ABAP development environment and learn about important code pushdown techniques lie CDS, Enhanced open SQL and AMDP.
They day will include a Member forum/roundtable to discuss testing of ABAP and management of custom code.
