Testing SuccessFactors and the HR processes it supports along with areas such as Payroll are particularly challenging due to the scale and complexity of the underlying data and the limitless combinations of functionality shared across SAP ECC, SuccessFactors and other HR applications and payroll systems. Factoring in on premise and cloud options, no two businesses are the same.
While testing itself may be relatively straight forward, the complexity lies in establishing the data model, rather than building the tests themselves. The frequency and type of testing being conducted demand a genuinely repeatable testing method, which may include variables that alter performance. Even automated testing is challenged by the complexity of data as it is not efficient or practical to re-establish data every time testing needs to occur. Further complexity is added as there are frequently multiple systems where business activities take place and therefore the technical landscape supporting your business needs to be in perfect synchronization for testing such as SAP ECC, SuccessFactors or another 3rd party application like PeopleSoft.
Fast and effective testing is not about how quickly or cheaply your test team can build or run through test scripts, but whether they understand the peripheral challenges, such as:
- Establishing organizational structures and HR master data across all involved platforms like supporting test scenarios with ECC and SuccessFactors
- Building end-to-end tests which in real life take a long duration to complete such as Hire to Retire
- Validating workflows like time & expense submission and approvals
- Process Payroll and assess results for Weekly, Monthly and other payroll variants such as Permanent vs. Temporary workers
Speed and quality come from identifying and creating the best testing model, supporting your data, business processes and technical landscape.
