Service virtualization and testing (SVT) solutions like Int4 IFTT (Certified ABAP add-on for SAP Solution Manager – SAP Solman) provide SAP developers and SAP functional consultants with ways to quickly simulate the interfaces/APIs of any 3rd party, non-SAP systems as well as B2B/EDI partners. Simulating those external systems allows to quickly run test scenarios during the development (DEV) and integration (SIT) phases of the project. This allows your SAP S/4HANA projects to be delivered and tested on time and within budget.

What are the 3 main problems during SAP S/4HANA transformation projects which can be solved by SVT solutions like Int4 IFTT?
- Decouple – 3rd party systems and EDI partners either don’t exist or are very difficult to reach. This means that testing some of the most crucial SAP business processes depending on those (Order to Cash, Purchase to Pay, or Logistics) will be very complex and time-consuming. That can lead to project budget increases and lower customer satisfaction.
- Eliminate delays – manual creation of mockups is either very time-consuming (transaction WE19) and cannot be reused or does not work at all (in case of outbound IDOC messages, ABAP proxy messages). Working in a decoupled SAP environment is not possible without proper service virtualization.
- Stay in control – the time to create and maintain non-existing, before the SAP S/4HANA project, 3rd party non-SAP systems cause one issue – all SAP developers and Functional consultants need to wait to have their business processes tested.
