What is a Test Factory Model and how can we gain the maximum value from it for SAP applications?

Let me start with why do we need a test factory. With the ever-growing need for resources and rising costs in the running of enterprise applications (such as SAP and Oracle applications), testing of enterprise applications has become fairly complex and is a major contributor to burgeoning IT costs. Test Factory is a unique concept and model that allows us to address this problem.

 

If an organization plans to implement the Test Factory model, it can turn to vendors who have the expertise to test enterprise applications in a more efficiently-governed and cost-effective manner. At the same time, this model allows the day-to-day operations of the organization to be run effectively, peacefully and uninterrupted.
