SAP Performance and Load Testing Automation

Performance Testing SAP Platform is Business Critical

SAP ERP, SuccessFactors, Concur, Hybris or Ariba are some of the many business critical SAP applications used widely in Enterprise organizations.

Day-to-day business operations depend on these applications to performance reliably. Rigorous testing is required to identify any performance bottlenecks applications present under heavy load and to gain insight into application performance trends over time. Otherwise, performance degradation can slow business to a crawl.

NeoLoad, the leading performance testing platform, automates and accelerates performance testing to let testers deliver quality assurance for all SAP applications.

The Typical Use Cases for Performance and Load Testing SAP Applications

To maintain their competitive edge, Enterprises are modernizing their SAP environments by upgrading to the latest versions, customizing their current SAP implementation and migrating to the cloud. These changes place pressure on performance testing teams to ensure that the user experience meets expectations and performs reliability.

Typical use cases include:

  1. Deploy a new SAP application or customize a current implementation.
    In this use case, comprehensive testing should be executed in a pre-production environment to ensure the new software will provide a good user experience under realistic load conditions, before opening the service to real users.
  2. Upgrade to a new release.
    Although software is heavily tested in SAP Labs, deploying a new release in an Enterprise environment presents different variables and conditions. Performance testing that simulates the production environment prior to deployment is required.
  3. Migrate to the cloud or to SAP HANA.
    Modern cloud-based infrastructures or HANA technology provide huge benefits to an Enterprise. But these migrations are complex and require load and performance testing at all layers to mitigate performance bottlenecks.

NeoLoad: Validating SAP Application Performance

Using NeoLoad is critical for detecting and mitigating performance under heavy load for a wide range of SAP applications.

With NeoLoad:

  • Simulate realistic load testing for SAP applications to validate SAP application performance and pinpoint any performance bottlenecks or weaknesses.
  • Reduce the costs and headaches associated with performance testing complex or hybrid applications.
  • Mitigate the risk of poor user experience.

NeoLoad: Performance Testing Excellence for All SAP Applications

Load and performance testing tools’ ability to simulate the specific use case of SAP applications is an essential prerequisite for testing and monitoring SAP applications. Performance testing tools must adapt to SAP platform updates to expedite testing. Teams managing SAP environments can benefit from NeoLoad’s faster testing cycles, ease of use, and automation advantage.

Test entire Enterprise business flows.
With NeoLoad, test every critical business process individually and the entire connected business process of your enterprise. NeoLoad realistically simulates user load for a variety of SAP applications such as SAP ERP, SuccessFactors, Concur, Hybris or Ariba over a variety of user interfaces such as SAP GUI, Fiori or NetWeaver. NeoLoad adapts to test any standard or custom process.

Automate tests.
One of the main difficulties with load and performance testing is the time and effort it takes for teams to design and analyze tests. NeoLoad enables performance test automation and smart analysis, dramatically decreasing the time required to validate SAP applications’ performance.

Scale tests.
NeoLoad’s unique load testing technology enables testers to scale load and limit the cost of the load testing infrastructure, and run tests under real load conditions.
