SAP is the backbone on which many organizations run their business. To maintain a competitive edge, companies seek to add innovative software capabilities on top of these existing systems to meet customer needs. It is critical that the IT organization increases the velocity of the company’s Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to match this growing need.

The complexity of SAP environments and the conventional SDLC used when these systems were likely put in place does not lend itself to supporting the pace in which new, differentiating application functionality must be delivered.

  • How SAP is commonly deployed and changed for application development and testing within the enterprise
  • Describe the SDLC challenges of SAP environments
  • How Skytap can transform and modernize the way organizations develop and test SAP applications.
