Today on the IntelliCorp blog we’re asking an important question; “how can we reduce testing effort by at least 85% with zero defects?” The answer? LiveCompare’s Impact App. Impact supports the testing phase of the smart DevOps lifecycle allowing users to increase release velocity without sacrificing quality. Users can ditch the traditional “test everything” approach, testing only what they need to.
How Does Impact Work?
Impact is very easy to set-up and run. Point it at an SAP system that contains your changes and provide a specification of the objects to analyze. This could be a set of transports, data from an integrated change and release management system, or even a set of objects you’re proposing to change – an advanced capability we call projected impact analysis which is very useful when responding to change requests mid-sprint.
LiveCompare supports all SAP application change events including:
- Custom Releases
- Support packs/stacks
- Enhancement packs
In addition to its great support for transaction-based SAP applications, LiveCompare features special flavors of smart impact analysis designed for:
- Extended Warehouse Management
Which Test Automation Tools Integrate with Impact?
LiveCompare integrates with many different test tools such as Azure DevOps, Micro Focus ALM, Tricentis Tosca, Worksoft Certify, and even Excel. These integrations automate the discovery of hits and gaps, help you prioritize tests and maintain the health of your automation assets.
What Results Does Impact Produce?
The Impact app dashboard gives you all the important information in a series of easy to use charts.
- Used, Impacted and Most-at-risk objects to test
- Test hits and gaps
- Breakdown of impact by application area
See below for one of our customers results integrating with HP ALM. Notice how the impact app points out the most-at-risk transactions to test.
