3070788 - Test Management for Integrated Business Planning


You want to learn more about SAP Activate for Integrated Business Planning, i.e. test management.



Test management ensures a structures test process, providing test case authoring, versioning, provisioning as well as manual and automatic test procedure execution. Testing can be done on multiple levels - from very focused low-level tests that exercise a single unit without the rest of the system, to high level tests that exercise the whole system from an end-user point of view. Low level tests typically do not require much set up making them fast to execute. It is not possible however, to cover all requirements using only low-level tests - for instance testing whether or not all components communicate correctly. In addition, integration with a third-party service is almost impossible without high level tests. High level tests require more time to execute. In order to make testing efficient, we need to test on multiple levels.

Unit Testing: software testing method by which individual units of source code, sets of one or more computer program modules together with associated control data, usage procedures, and operating procedures, are tested to determine whether they are fit for use.

Integration testing: individual software modules are combined and tested as a group. In some context, integration testing might be taken as part of functional testing and thus it's black-box but in most cases, it should be referred to as a white-box testing.

Functional testing: black-box which bases its test cases on the specifications of the software component under test.
