SAP is focusing its future ERP developments on S/4HANA and motivating its customers to complete the move to S/4HANA by 2025. This change can not be compared to a normal SAP upgrade. S/4HANA contains several important technological and functional changes: new HANA database technology, new dynamic user interface with SAP Fiori, new implementation approach ACTIVATE, etc. In addition, S/4HANA is not a standalone application. It should be the digital heart of a company with numerous integrations and interfaces.

While meeting the technical and functional challenges of such migration, organizations need to protect the continuity of mission-critical business processes. With the introduction of S/4HANA, the subject of test automation gains a new status: it becomes a "must have". Without extensive test automation, it is not possible to handle the increased frequency of updates and ensure the quality of business processes.

Hear from Sogeti’s testing specialists on how to meet these challenges and participate in the panel discussion featuring several of our international experts as they debate how SAP Business Assurance and a wise usage of test tooling can contribute to the success of SAP migration initiatives while protecting your organizations vital assets.
