To automate testing of interfaces and processes, NTT DATA Business solutions adopted the Int4 solution, Int4 Shield. In collaboration with Int4, the SAP platinum partner aims to offer a stable, and cost-effective migration to SAP® Integration Suite. SAP customers around the world are currently using SAP Process Orchestration software for their integration needs. Further development and maintenance for this software are due to be discontinued in 2027, by which time companies will need to migrate to SAP Integration Suite, a key solution of SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP). According to Thorsten Düvelmeyer, SAP Consultant Enterprise Integration & Cloud Architect at NTT DATA Business Solutions, businesses can reap benefits from making the change early: “SAP Integration Suite is the future-proof approach of integration platform as a service (PaaS), which can be utilized to comprehensively map and control the digital transformation.”
Michal Krawczyk, Co-CEO of Int4 AG, added: “We are proud to have partnered up with NTT DATA Business Solutions, one of the leading SAP global system integration experts. With our collaboration, processes can be sped up through our automated testing and service virtualization solutions and SAP BTP customers can experience an uninterrupted transformation journey.”
SAP offers migration assessment, capability and best practices to support the move to SAP Integration Suite. Int4 offers Int4 Shield, a solution for automated testing when migrating to SAP Integration Suite. As manual interface testing ties up important resources, NTT DATA Business Solutions will be using the automated solution Int4 Shield during the migration process. This solution enables SAP developers and consultants to test the interfaces between SAP systems and third-party applications with convenient ease. Regression tests in non-productive systems are possible as well. If the associated simulations already take place in early project phases, developers will no longer have to wait for their business processes to be tested as used to be the case.
“As one of the leading consultants for SAP’s integration software solutions, we were looking for a partner that could assist us in providing effective and high-quality support to our customers,” said Thorsten Düvelmeyer. “I know Int4 AG already from past projects and was sure that we would create an ideal symbiosis, enabling us to provide our customers with the best possible support in terms of quality and project duration.” There are plans to expand the partnership between NTT DATA Business Solutions and Int4 over time, for instance in order to allow automated testing of the entire migration to SAP S/4HANA®. The first concrete planning details are to be presented in the fall of 2023.
