The ALM and ALM-Testing SIG have come together to organise a joint meeting with shows how to use SolMan throughout the whole life-cycle.

Paul Fenson & Dragan Stanojevic from SAP will present Understanding SAP Support offerings. Do you fully understand what’s available through SAP as part of your support engagement?  Or the different types of support SAP offers? In the session we will cover the different support services and tools available to all SAP customers as well as providing an overview of the increasing scope of services within SAP Enterprise Support through to those available from our Premium Engagement offerings of SAP ActiveEmbedded and SAP MaxAttention.

Adam Cundell from User Group will give a session on Influencing SAP. Adam will give a session on how you can make your improvement ideas are guaranteed to be heard by SAP!

Neil Dable and Jim Graley from KCA Deutag will discuss SolMan and automated testing at KCA Deutag. KCA Deutag have recently implemented an automated testing pilot across their core logistics process using SAP Solution Manager 7.1, integrated with HP QTP. This utilises the 2 free HP QTP licences available to Enterprise Support customers and we believe there are a number of benefits that our business is now realising. Jim and I will run through these and explain our approach to the project from the beginning and then into a business as usual activity.

Further, they have created the full business process structure and recorded Technical Bills of Materials (TBOMs) for the various transactions within the process and are now using the Business Process Change Analyser (BPCA) functionality for BAU change impact analysis.

After lunch this SIG will spilt into two separate streams which will contain the following:

Stream 1

Guy Spaven from SAP will present SAP PPM and how it links to Solution Manager. An overview of SAP Portfolio and Project Management and how it links to Solution Manager.

Mike Bray from SAP will present Personas – Why / How? SAP Screen Personas is a browser-based rendering engine for classic SAP Dynpro screens. It provides consumer-grade personalization features that enable IT professionals, key-users, and end-users to simplify business application screens quickly and easily in order to improve the visual appeal, end- user productivity, and performance of SAP. SAP Screen Personas provides IT Managers or end users the ability to make rapid screen changes, delivering an improved user experience and increased work efficiency. SAP Screen Personas helps IT Managers reduce screen clutter for business users, allowing them to access only the data they need to transact business. This translates into increased business user productivity and a more satisfying user experience. SAP Screen Personas allows IT Managers to deliver increased transaction throughput and an improved user experience.

Stream 2

Clair Walton from SAP will give a session on Test Management and Automated Testing with Solution Manager 7.1. A look at some of the latest capability in Solution Manager 7.1 across Test Management – including the new Scope and Effort Analyser (SEA), Change Impact and Test Scope Optimisation, and Automated Testing using the Test Automation Framework and the Component-Based Test Automation tool (CBTA) test tool provided within Solution Manager for Enterprise Support customers.

Indrabir Gill from Worksoft will present Worksoft session – Automated Testing. Combining a well-designed ALM strategy with SAP Solution Manager and Worksoft’s automated business process validation enables companies to better manage their overall testing strategy and achieve high levels of business process quality, accelerate SAP projects, and reduce technology risk.  Worksoft will present a real customer case study on how using this integration has helped Richemont achieve daily lights-out testing

For the final session of the day, the SIG will come back together and have a Deep dive into Enterprise Support Academy for ALM which will be given by Tom Payne from SAP.
