It’s All About your Data

RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA provides pre-built, automated testing for most modules and T-codes available from SAP, including FI, CO, SD, MM, PP, PS, SCM, HCM, and much more.  Accessed through the cloud, RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA provides out-of-the-box automated tests that can be quickly customized to your unique environment using our cFactory™ Machine Learning toolset.  As the only Data-Centric testing solution for SAP, RainierAEV™ will mine the data from your application database using our InfoCompiler™ technology, encrypting it in-flight to protect PII and sensitive data.  RainierAEV™ uses Business Intelligence

(BI) technology to analyze this data, and will provide you with specific, optimized recommendations on what combinations of your data need to be tested.  You can run tests on command or schedule them to execute fully autonomously using RainierAEV™’s Outlook-like Calendar.  When tests run, you get direct links to auto-generated reports, or you can login to your dashboard and click on your recent runs.  Your dashboard will take you straight to interactive reports that hide unnecessary information, while showing you all of the detail needed to assist with root cause analysis for any identified issues.

Because north of 80% of all SAP production issues are the result of bad or dirty production data[1], RainierAEV™ incorporates Production Analytics™ to find and help cure these problems.  As the first and only Data-Centric testing solution for SAP, the Production Analytics™ module within RainierAEV™ will analyze what your mix of T-codes looks like in production, based upon the data actually flowing through those transactions.  RainierAEV™ will then automatically turn those transactions into tests, allowing you to not only validate your processes, but more importantly to validate that all of your production data works with your specific setups, configurations and customizations.  You will find more problems before they ever get to Production, reducing your support costs, increasing user engagement, and significantly improving the ROI from your SAP investments.

Rounding out the platform, RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA does not stop with the analysis and testing of your transactional and master data, configurations and customizations.  Complete Integrations testing is also covered, which includes the ability to test both upstream and downstream applications to SAP for comprehensive End-to-End validation.  Security authorizations, both positive and negative, are validated on multiple levels.  You will be able to make sure that your complete, cross-application business processes run as they should, for the right people, for all of your different data types and combinations.

User Authorizations, SoD & Regulatory

RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA integrates your User Authorizations into testing, giving you the ability to validate both positive and negative security access.  Areas of concern are automatically highlighted and precisely documented, allowing you to quickly focus and rectify problem assignments.

Checks for Separation of Duties (SoD) violations are automatically performed on a cadence that you choose, specifically identifying problems and why they are problems, allowing you to quickly implement remediations with full Forensic tracking support.

The RainierAEV™’s ReportHub™ provides both out-of-the-box reports and support for customized reporting to help you quickly and cost-effectively meet regulatory compliance needs.

Interactive, Customizable Reporting

The RainierAEV™ ReportHub™ provides a range of out-of-the-box, interactive visual reporting that hides unnecessary information while highlighting relevant, important results.  This capability allows you to focus in on issues requiring your attention faster and more seamlessly, significantly reducing management time and avoiding oversight of important issues.

RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA also allows you to easily customize existing reports, or create new reports from scratch, using industry-standard reporting tools.  No need to learn a proprietary reporting language or tools to get exactly the reports that you, your management, audit team and regulatory compliance officers require.

Change Management Validation

Whether you are new to SAP or have been using S/4HANA for years, changes to your environment are an on-going reality. RainierAEV™ for SAP S/4HANA allows you to easily capture these changes, such as from patches, support packages or new customizations, and then comprehensively test for impacts by analyzing the effects upon your application data and changes to its processing. Based upon this deep inspection, RainierAEV™ specifically identifies tests that need to be run, ones that do not need to be run, and then auto-creates autonomous tests to thoroughly validate the impacts. Unlike other solutions that focus just on object changes via transports, RainierAEV™ analyzes to the individual transactional data level by field, ensuring accurate and complete testing coverage for the change. Gone are the days of ‘surprises’ caused by unintended interactions or side effects that only occur with specific sets or combinations of master data, allowing you to implement changes confidently and without impact to your production environment.

Deep Data Search

Because RainierAEV™ tracks and manages all application and testing data down to the individual field level, you can query the system to see exactly what sets of data have been tested, how they were tested, when they were tested, and the precise results.  This can significantly help in performing root cause analysis, letting you spend less time researching problems while simultaneously increasing SAP system availability
