SAP Solution Manager as a Test Tool:
S/4HANA Project Success
Whenever a company migrates to SAP S/4HANA, test management presents numerous challenges and pitfalls. Thanks to SAP Solution Manager and competent support from XEPTUM, Hager Group mastered this complex task on time and to the best quality.
Hager Group is a leading supplier of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, commercial and industrial buildings – from energy distribution and cable management through to intelligent building control and security technology. Founded in 1955, with its head office in Blieskastel, Saarland, the company now employs 12,900 people at 20 locations worldwide and has customers in more than 100 countries all over the world.
Why Are Testing Activities so Important in S/4HANA Projects?
As an important digitalization milestone, Hager Group wanted to replace the aging SAP ERP Central Component system (SAP ECC) and convert it into a modern S/4HANA platform by adopting a brownfield approach. The migration project, which lasted almost three years, made it absolutely necessary to plan and conduct the accompanying test phases as this was the only way to ensure that the complex transformation project and all business processes implemented would function effectively.
Why Did Hager Group Choose SAP Solution Manager?
Thanks to its numerous powerful features, Hager Group chose SAP Solution Manager (SolMan) to manage its wide range of testing activities. In addition, they chose XEPTUM as their project partner because of the IT consulting firm's ability to also demonstrate a high level of process and functional expertise for this special use of SolMan.
