Using NeoLoad for Performance Testing SAP Applications

Performance Testing is Business-Critical

Enterprise companies have come to rely on SAP applications like ECC, CRM, and S/4 HANA as business-critical in the areas of ERP/Digital Core, Analytics, and Business Intelligence. To maintain their competitive edge, Enterprises are modernizing their SAP environments by upgrading to the latest versions of S/4 HANA and Fiori 2.0.

These changes place pressure on performance testing teams to ensure that users always get a great application experience.

Because SAP applications are central to daily business operations, they must be rigorously tested to spot performance bottlenecks when applications come under heavy load and to gain insight into application performance trends over time. Otherwise, performance degradation can slow your business to a crawl.
