The next ALM-Testing Special Interest Group Meeting will take place on the 27th September 2011 at SAP Clockhouse Place, nr Heathrow and is sponsored by Experior.

The SIG will cover SAP Test Data Migration Server – Benefits, Roadmap and a Customer Case Study.

Andy Lawrence from SAP UKI will discuss why SAP Test Data Migration Server (TDMS) is an essential part of an optimised E2E Test Management process. This will include insights on the benefits case for SAP TDMS, including where this tool can save time and costs during testing, and technically how SAP TDMS can be deployed.

This introduction will be followed by Mark Salinger from Centrica plc, who will discuss how TDMS has been deployed to reduce their 22TB production environment to 0.5TB non-Production system, and how they continue to provide high quality realistic data scenarios to support their rigorous testing requirements.

Andy Lawrence will then wrap up with a view on the future of SAP TDMS by presenting highlights from the forthcoming release (TDMS 4.0), which is currently planned to enter Ramp-Up in Q4 2011.

Simon Evans from Experior will deliver the session Testing in the modern world: Manual Testing with HP Sprinter. We all know that manual testing can be time consuming and resource heavy. In this session you will hear all about the future of Manual testing with Sprinter, a manual testing software that closely interacts with SAP Quality Center by HP 11/ HP ALM that allows you to set up manual tests that can then be repeated automatically over multiple operating systems, browsers and instances of SAP.  Sprinter can be used during the UAT and Functional test phases to;

  • Simplify your manual testing
  •  Save time and free up resource
  •  Test multiple screens under one session
  • Test offline

You will see a demo of this in progress along with how Sprinter can improve defect management, allowing you to annotate screen shots or record videos or defects to send on.

Simon Evans from Experior will also deliver a seccond session Testing in the modern world: User Acceptance Testing, putting the A into UAT User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is an important stage in your project delivery. It's at this stage where the business and the users who will actually be interacting with the system take over the reins and carry out the testing. But what should they be testing? The key to UAT is User Acceptance not User Testing.The business users should be agreeing that the implementation or change supports their day to day activity and not finding critical defects. Fast and efficient UAT is a critical part of project delivery – so how can you employ tried and tested UAT solutions to deliver better results?

In this session you will hear;

  • UAT planning, monitoring & reporting
  • Your UAT strategy – taking a risk based approach
  • Customer example of UAT delivery
  • Understanding defects and how can you be one step ahead

Jayne Coxon from the User Group will deliver the latest 2011 User Group Conference Update.

We’d like the entire day to be as interactive as possible, so please bring along your testing challenges, problems and bug-bears, and use this as an opportunity to ask the speakers and colleagues attending the day. 

Please note the agenda has recently had changes made please view the agenda online for the final timings.
