We use it to do end-to-end testing for the business. After development has occurred and once we're into verifying that no regression has been broken, it's at that stage of testing that we deploy it.

We get user stories from the DevOps teams, in conjunction with a recording they make with another Worksoft tool. Then we will investigate if it has already been automated and, if not, to automate the process which has been delivered to us. This is all set up in a Citrix environment. We have SAP being used at the moment and we still have the old SAP ECC up and running. I'm not sure which part of this is cloud-based, but the Certify solution is installed on Citrix.

The company is using it across our IT landscape on different projects. We use it to test web applications, SAP mainly. Right now, we're doing a big conversion project. The one that I am working on is a big conversion from an old mainframe system over to SAP. Thus, we are using it to automate all the UAT test cases. We have also used it in other areas of the company for ServiceNow upgrades and general web design stuff.

Our primary use case is test automation. We have an SRP solution called One1ERP on an ERP platform. We started the automation in Worksoft Certify, getting more than a thousand test cases automated. Nowadays, we also have automation for a web application in our HR area, so all our HR processes on the platform, Pega. This started to be automated since November last year. We have 40 test cases automated on this application in one year.

We use Worksoft Certify for testing and non-testing. * Under the testing umbrella, we use it for regression testing, disaster recovery, validations, and system refresh testing. This has been our main focus. * Recently, we have started getting more requests for more RPA-light type of work, which is not testing. It is using the same skills, process knowledge, and tool sets to do work that would replace manual repetitive tasks with automation. We use Worksoft Certify for some basic ServiceNow functionality or Workday releases, weekly and quarterly releases. For SAP Hybris and ECC, we are also using it for our internal security protocol testing. So, we test Office 365 and Windows 10 compatibility. We test some Excel functionality and file sharing, as part of our security protocols. The most in-depth end-to-end testing that we have is in SAP. We have done a lot of manual testing. We still do a lot of manual testing for our projects. We've eliminated a significant amount of manual testing with our system refresh, automation, and for technical upgrades where changes are known. However, for projects with new enhancements and functionality, we are having a slower time penetrating into them. With regression testing, we have completely replaced it with automation. Now, we are trying to shift as much as we can to start automating processes earlier in the project lifecycle, but it has still been a bit of a challenge. This is one of our stretch goals for this next year. The non-testing area is where we have had the most growth over the last six months.

The primary use case is for SAP applications. We do some end-to-end testing of applications. We created a checking and boarding process for a flying scenario, which was innovative. For the back-end systems, we use it to do financial valuations. We also have a SAP HCM module and SAP FI module where we are actively using Worksoft for our current automation.

Our organization is building a platform which supports a client across SAP end-to-end. As part of it, we have reconfigured go-to market solutions across industries and functions. Now, specifically for SAP, we use Worksoft to test these reconfigured solutions, as these are very critical. As there are newer versions of SAP and we are building our solutions, we need to ensure our solutions can do regression testing. The second important aspect is these are real visible assest which we take to the client. So, not only having preconfigured systems, but being able to test it where clients have Worksoft, it gives us an edge.

The primary use case would be for automating SAP. We did attempt to automate some non-SAP processes, but had mixed results. We do have some areas which are already using it for RPA-like use cases. We use this solution mostly for end-to-end testing of SAP.

We used Worksoft Certify with SAP ECC and Fiori applications in the beginning. We extended that to the ServiceNow application. We have up to 15 modules in ServiceNow with 750 test cases. Our regression testing suite is around a 1000 processes.

We have been working on test automation for SAP-based platform for the last 15 years and leveraging Worksoft for SAP test automation in last 10 years. We have some fantastic use cases on how we can leverage Worksoft in large SAP transformation programs, especially for major global rollouts. If you look at some of the industries, like retail and logistics, we can see a lot of consolidation. When there is consolidation, we need to merge two SAP landscapes to a single landscape instance. It is a very complex transformation program. The testing is labor-intensive work in such a large scale IT landscape program. Worksoft has played a key role in delivering these complex integration programs on time, because we automated the core processes using Worksoft Certify. This helped us to automate the testing scenarios in new companies being integrated. At the same time, we test the existing company codes on the existing landscape to ensure that business as usual is not impacted. If you look at the industry trend, the next six or seven years will be SAP S/4HANA migrations and adoptions of SAP cloud applications, whether it is SAP SuccessFactors, Ariba, or Fieldglass. We strongly believe that WorkSoft can play a pivotal role in delivering large-scale SAP S4 HANA programs since Worksoft can support the implementation of SAP cloud applications. We have delivered a couple of major SAP S/4HANA programs by leveraging Worksoft Certify. One of the key things that we have done is introduce test automation on day one in system integration testing (SIT). We don't want to wait until the program is over, then start the automation development. We start the automation right from the build phase, then we are able to deliver test automation on day one to the SIT.

The primary use case is more on SAP for automating all our manual business work, as well as doing regression testing. We do end-to-end regression testing on SAP. The product has worked very well with SAP.

Our eCommerce platform is Hybris. We run end-to-end tests where we place orders in Hybris, then we validate the order in ECC. Additionally, when an order is placed on Hybris, our QA environment has a lot of things which the SAP analysts have to prepare to get an order ready, so it doesn't clutter up the system, such as creating deliveries. Worksoft can do this for us as well. Hybris is out most modern application. Our point of sale system is web-based, and it is in web form. We are on Azure. One of the things that we've been able to do is use Jenkins to put our Azure machines on business hours. We tell them to turn it off at 5 PM, then we tell them to turn it on at 7 AM. This has saved us about 62 percent of computer operations.

We're using it to move manual tests over to automated tests to use on major programs and projects going on within the company. We are also moving to Dell EMC Embedded Boxes for an agile approach from a waterfall approach, and part of our new addition for 2019 after merging with a new company. Our role now is to automate as much as we can for usability. We're doing mostly end-to-end testing scenarios. We use it on SAP and ServiceNow web services, along with SRM, CRM, and various applications.

We bought the product in 2014, but did not have the right structure in place to use it properly. It wasn't until 2017 that we started to receive good value out of the product. Automation is now part of our strategy. We use this solution for end-to-end testing of our packaged and SaaS applications. It is very much a part of our key strategy. We have it running end-to-end updates all the time. We do web UI testing of SAP and ServiceNow. This was difficult in the beginning, as we had a homegrown product, and we had to do the proper object naming. With SAP, Worksoft does the object naming for us. This improved our website from 2014 until now. This is part of their process improvement.

We automated a big end-to-end process: Hybrid to SAP to Manhattan, then back to SAP. We have web UI automation testing. Hybrid is a type of web UI testing. We have SaaS automation testing, along with CRM testing. We also have Manhattan, which is a third-party application.

It is not for the entire automation process. It is mainly for anything which needs to be automated. Instead of just replacing human work, which it is doing now. It also includes robotic process automation for when we are replacing centralize manual work. Our clients use Worksoft Certify for end-to-end testing of packaged applications and web UI testing of modern applications. I have been using BPP and Execution Manager for more than seven years. I sell the product to different clients.

We use Worksoft Certify to test our SAP System. We have a global instance of SAP, which we started implementing in 2012, and we are still in the process of implementing. We have rolled out SAP to about 80 percent of our manufacturing and distribution. Right now, the remaining projects are a small distribution center and sales offices. We have ongoing projects, and three times a year, we release a new version of SAP. We rolled out SAP to a new geography, and we also added new features for our business users. Thus, as part of those projects, we use Certify to do regression testing of our existing business processes, and we also use it in the project to test new functionality. When we are rolling out in a new country, we do a configuration for that new country. We use the automation test to test the business processes and prices of that new country. It is sort of semi-automated. Our business analysts generate sales orders from the new country, and we will run them through the shipping orders to cash, the shipping steps, and the concrete steps. Then, we get a set of documents to review. The business analysts review those documents to make sure the order is processed correctly. So, it's not fully automated, but it does help cut down on testing a lot when we roll out to new countries. For regression testing, that is fully automated. We have tests where the software checks the results and either returns a pass or fail. These are run as a regression suite anytime we push a change to production. We do use it for the end-to-end testing of packaged applications, primarily SAP. We do have some plugin applications that we use it to test, which are part of the business process. We use Salesforce for CRM, and we have a custom built eBusiness application. While we don't do extensive testing of those applications using Certify, when the business processes touch one of those applications, we do cover those application with another certified test.

Initially it was to automate our SAP ECC regression suite, but we have moved into web applications at this point. Our SAP has interfaces with web applications, such as a quoting system, and dealer and vendor portals. Some are applications that we use internally and some our customers and dealers access for a variety of reasons, such as placing an order, checking status of an order, or filing a warranty claim. We have now moved on to starting the automation in these systems because our SAP Suite is probably now 90 percent automated. When you're dealing with an external system, e.g., warehouse management, it is owned by the outsourced vendor. We don't have access to their test systems, so we can only automate up until we do our hand off to them. We automate our test up to the point we interface with their system. They complete the test in their system, then send us back a file. We pick up the test from there. It is a little manual, but that is what you have to do with systems in which you can’t access. We have a couple web applications and a dealer portal. There are certain functions that we can't automate for a variety of reasons, it doesn't make sense, or they are so simple that it's just as quick to do them manually. We started using the product in late July 2016. We are using version 10, but will start beta testing a version of 11 soon.

Worksoft Certify is being used to run automated weekly regression tests across some of our primary SAP systems in line with our Change and Release management strategy. These tests run every weekend without fail. The results are reviewed on every Monday morning to check for failures and to analyse if any failures are associated with the changes scheduled to be transported to the production environment that week. Failures (if any) are fixed and the tests re-run before transporting the associated changes into the Production environment. We also utilize it for projects that need extensive business-user testing and functional testing. There can be testing requirements which come at short notice which can take three to four weeks of manual testing effort. By using Certify, we have been able to bring timescales down to a few hours of automated testing effort. Our final goal is to utilise this for 'Unify', our new global solution which is currently being deployed, which will deliver common processes and systems to all sites and sectors, replacing all our existing legacy systems which will demand extensive regression testing.

We are using Worksoft Certify to enable our stakeholders to do test automation on the UI level. We use it for end-to-end testing of packaged applications. We are part of the internal IT department within our company. Most of the time we are using it on our own products. The products and systems that we get are usually preconfigured and prepackaged and we do additional testing, not just for the functionality for the coding that we add to the product, but also on the prepackaged solutions. We use it for all kinds of applications. Our focus is the web area, including web-UI testing of modern applications. We have two tools in place: our own internal corporate test automation tool, and Worksoft Certify. The latter is a complementary tool, especially in the web area where there are some white spots for our corporate tool which it cannot cover. That was the main reason why we brought in another tool. And for that, it fits perfectly.

We have developed some end-to-end regression testing scenarios that we've found pretty valuable, so we have created a bunch of processes in Certify, linked them together, and we use them every week - sometimes more than once a week - in regression testing.
