​NZ Gold Partner launches dedicated SAP testing service

“You would never consider constructing a bridge or a building or an aircraft without planning and testing the design, the methods and the materials."

New Zealand SAP Gold Partner Soltius has launched a specialist testing unit to help SAP users improve the quality and efficiency of new software development projects.

According to Soltius Manager Orah Peri, it’s time that testing took centre stage instead of being relegated to a supporting role.

“Too often testing is regarded as an afterthought, something to be tacked on towards the end of a project, when in fact it should be included right from the start of any software development,” Peri says.

“You would never consider constructing a bridge or a building or an aircraft without planning and testing the design, the methods and the materials.

“But with software projects, testing is often seen as the poor cousin you invite because you feel you have to, not because you want to.”

Peri says that seasoned managers understand the importance of testing and the “measurable benefits” that integrated testing methodologies deliver to the business.

“Proper testing reduces the overall costs of development, helps deliver what the business really requires and ensures that user acceptance is streamlined from the get-go,” Peri adds.

“If the testing team is involved at the blueprint stage of a project, then invariably the project runs more smoothly, costs less, has fewer dead-ends, isn’t deployed with obvious errors and generally ships as fit for purpose.”

For Peri, the size and nature of a software development helps determine the shape and scope of the testing regimen.

“You don’t necessarily have to have an entire testing team involved from day one, but if you integrate testing from the start, then you can gradually ramp it up as a project progresses,” Peri adds.

“This delivers efficiencies for both development and testing, which directly translate through to cost savings and smoother deployments.”

Unlike general testing services, Peri says the Soltius testing group mainly work on SAP projects, resulting in a testing service that is tailored specifically to suit SAP customers.

“As an SAP Gold Partner, we not only deliver a testing service that is optimised for SAP projects, but we have SAP specialist consultants with years of experience to advise on the best approach to take in any given situation,” Peri adds.

“Unlike a general testing business, we don’t have to call the SAP Helpdesk to get answers to technical questions - we’ve got the answers right here in the business.”

According to Peri, nine specialists are already working on a “major government project” from now until April 2016, with a number of other projects due to come on stream over the next few months.
