  SAP Testing Consultant- a Career choice Skill Set  To become a SAP tester you need following skill sets .   Testing knowledge .   Functional knowledge of the module being tested. Typical WorkDay  On any typical work day you will be busy understanding requirement documents , creating test cases , executing test cases , reporting and re-testing bugs , attending review meetings and other team  building activities. Career Progression  Your career progression as a software tester (QA Analyst) in typical CMMI level 5 company will look like following but will vary from company to company QA Analyst  (  Fresher  ) => Sr. QA Analyst  ( 2-3 year experience )=> QA Team Coordinator  ( 5-6 year experience > => Test Manager  ( 8-11 experience ) => Senior Test Manage r ( 14+ experience ) How SAP Testing is more lucrative than other testing projects ?  While testing any AUT , 1.   You acquire deep functional knowledge of   the AUT. Without sufficient knowledge of AUT its difficult to test 2.   Hone your testing skills  As with any IT company , you move from one project to another in due course of time. All the hardwork you did to understand the functionality of AUT is obsolete in the new project. This is typically true if you are switching projects across domains say telecom to healthcare. In case of SAP, the functional knowledge you acquire is portable and can be used in other  projects. Suppose you are switching jobs. In your old company you were testing billing software for Vodafone. What is the likely hood that the same project is available in your new company ?  Next to Zero.  Now consider this case. You are switching from SAP Testing project to another SAP Testing  project in new company. You instantly recognize the GUI , Transaction codes, vanilla business workflows which is a huge advantage. You will need to learn the customizations made by the client but still you need a deep knowledge of the software.  The biggest advantage as SAP Tester is that due to the deep functional knowledge you acquire, you can easily become a SAP Functional Consultant ! SAP Consultants are in huge demand & they are almost always on short supply and command premium salaries. What is meant by SAP implementation? Consider this scenario. Company A offers 12 annual leaves. Company B offers 20 annual leaves. Salary must be deducted for any employee who uses 13 th  or 21 st  annual leave for Company A & B respectively. This information must be configured into the SAP system which is nothing but SAP implementation and configuration.   The SAP vanilla version is powerful but not much useful until it’s customized and configured as  per the business policies, legal stipulations, & technical requirements of a company. This process is called SAP implementation. It could typically take a few months to even years. What is SAP customization? SAP by far has the highest collection of Business Process. But sometimes your internal company  processed many not be accurately mapped using the readily available SAP business transactions. In such cases custom code is created using ABAP.  It involves code changing to create functionality that is not available through configuration . This is nothing but customizations. SAP customization can also be done to generate custom reports, programs, or enhancements. What is maintenance of SAP software? Once the SAP system is configured, customized, deployed and made live  –   any changes made to the SAP system is termed as Maintenance. This could include       New Feature addition to the SAP System    Bug Fixes    SAP Kernel Updates     Support Pack & Stack Updates     OSS note implementation  SAP End to End lifecycle and corresponding Testing Phases There are multitude of methodology that can used for SAP implementation    ASAP Implementation ( For initial implementation of SAP systems , and porting from legacy systems)     Maintainence Lifecycle    Upgrade LifeCycle    Custom Development LifeCycle Whatever the lifecycle you may be working, there are three main testing phases you will be involved in 1) Test Preparation 2) Test execution phase 3) Test Evaluation phase      Test preparation phase 1.   Identification of business process to be tested 2.   Manual and automated test case development 3.   Creation of test suites and review 4.   Set up of test system 5.   Creation of test data    Test execution phase 1.   Test execution either manually or using test tools 2.   Test status reporting and defect handling    Test evaluation phase 1.   Detailed assessment of all test plans 2.   Defect Analysis 3.   Documentation of the testing process Types of Testing Applicable to SAP applications   For SAP applications the common testing performed are: 1.   Unit Testing : This part of testing is mostly taken care by the developers based on their defined unit testing rules as per the organizations. This is sometimes done by the skilful white box testers. The test is done in the development box. This is the testing of interfaces, conversions, enhancement, reports, work flows and forms(RICEWF) developed primarily with ABAP code. Testing of development object includes testing for  security authorization, ,data transfer rules, reconciliations and batch scheduling jobs. BW (Business Warehouse) testing is also  part of the development tests. 2.   Integration Testing : It is the testing of combined components of a SAP application to determine if they function together correctly. It is typically done in the QA environment and uses realistic test data. 3.   Regression Testing : Regression testing is done to ensure that the new changes implemented do not adversely affect the existing working code. SAP R/3 is a tightly integrated system. A single stack update, OSS note, transport, configuration changes, new development interfaces can have cascading and severe effect. Regression Testing is usually executed using automation tool by the testing team. 4.   Performance Testing : It is testing SAP applications to ensure that they will perform well under expected workload. Performance testing encompasses load , volume & stress testing to determine system bottlenecks. The aim of this testing is to enhance robustness of SAP applications and helps deploy systems that can sustain high load forecast, with zero post
