IT Outsourcing: Infosys- Software Testing

Service Capabilities Applications covered by this service include SAP, Oracle applications, Siebel and PeopleSoft HCM. Of those offerings, the SAP testing one is the most in demand. This is due to the fact that SAP has a larger client installed base. Within ERP testing, IVS is finding that Oracle Apps and SAP have their own challenges:

• Oracle has a series of different packaged applications that have their own architecture, programming language and integration tools. Testing them therefore requires taking into account this heterogeneity of applications by having segmented offerings. In the future, Oracle with its Fusion initiative will make its applications overall more consistent and easier to test. IVS targets for this offering the manufacturing sector and retail; to a lesser extent, telecom media & entertainment, energy & utilities and pharmaceuticals.

IP and Tools IVS is investing into testing automation and developing test cases around core functionality and business processes. With this, Infosys intends to increase the level of asset re-use across clients. Restrictions will apply however as many clients still customize their business processes and screens: the level of re-use will therefore depend on how much customization clients will have done in their systems. This ERP-specific test repository is complemented by

• Pre-packaged business models: i.e. standard business processes • An automation framework for developing test scripts for customizations • Test Automation Accelerator with prebuilt components for components such as screens and reports. Test repositories include:

• SAP: FI, CO, MM, SD, LE, PP:

− Order-to-cash: 22 business processes and 72 test cases − Procure-to-pay: 15 business processes and 70 test cases − For order-to-cash and procure-to-pay, Infosys claims 100% coverage of the SAP business processes

• SAP IS Retail: merchandise management; SCM; store and multichannel; enterprise management and support: 238 test scenarios and 625 test cases. Infosys claims 24 out of 40 critical business processes are covered

• SAP IS Utilities: services management; customer services; SD: reusable test scenarios covering 70% of all functional areas
