Top 10+ Best SAP Testing Tools

Review of the best SAP automation testing tools:

Being a QA tester of any software application/component means a tester with some common basic skills of testing. Either its web testing, product testing or SAP testing.

All the application basic testing skills are same, with the same concept and perception of providing a bug-free application.

So,  SAP tester is not someone with too many additional skills, but one with good knowledge of SAP projects.

The positive thing with a SAP QA person is that the functional knowledge during the study of SAP project acquired in a company can be utilized in SAP project in another company.

While a normal QA can hardly get a similar project in different companies. And they need to start with a requirement study from scratch.
