How Salt River Project Implements SAP EHP8 and SAP HANA While  Reducing Testing


SRP Case Study fix-1To start off the New Year, we’d like to share with you the latest customer story where one of our customers decreased testing cycles and increased quality using our software, LiveCompare.

Salt River Project (SRP), one of the largest public and power utility companies in the nation, uses LiveCompare to upgrade to SAP Enhancement Pack 8 and migrate to SAP HANA®. SRP was looking for a solution to automate their testing strategy and to ensure that changes would not break in production.

Using LiveCompare, SRP achieved valuable results to support business innovation:

  • LiveCompare helped SRP reduce system integration testing by 25% when comparing their EHP7 project.
  • LiveCompare reduced user acceptance testing by 50% when comparing their EHP7 project.

Other benefits include:

  • Quicker detection of defects
  • Decreased testing timeframes
  • Decreased risk
  • Decreased time spent on unplanned work
  • Increased trust in software releases
  • Improved quality of released customized software

“LiveCompare provides detailed information on what we need to test. Without this analysis, the team at SRP may miss important changes, putting the business at risk” –Suzanne Casey, Team Lead Enterprise Systems Quality Assurance


How Does LiveCompare Help?


LiveCompare provides the SRP team with complete visibility on the most-at-risk objects to test when introducing change to their SAP system. The LiveCompare analysis shows SRP what they need to test and why, instead of using the “test everything approach.”


LiveCompare integrates with Micro Focus HP ALM to identify any gaps in the test scripts and from there, SRP can be sure that the tests they have built cover exactly what will change.


LiveCompare helps SRP audit their test processes to ensure that the appropriate transports have been moved to production.


“By using LiveCompare as part of our SAP HANA® and EHP8 projects, we’ve been able to detect defects quicker and improve quality. We’ve significantly decreased our testing timeframes and time spent on unplanned work. We can be sure we are providing quality software releases.” –Suzanne Casey, Team Lead Enterprise Systems Quality Assurance
