iAS – Latest Generation Automation Tools
NEXTEP has been helping our customers find ways to save time and money by truly automating SAP testing for the past few years. However, until now, the option of choice involved moving away from the industry leader, HP’s QTP (QuickTest Professional) and the Quality Center Suite, which most companies have adopted as their standard. Today, NEXTEP is excited to have been chosen to introduce Ibikus’ iAS, the Latest Generation Automation Tools to North America. Ibikus is an HP Partner! iAS compliments HP’s QTP so that you can leverage your Quality Center investment and gain greater productivity. Literally the best of both worlds! There is no compelling reason today to choose an Automated Testing platform from a company other than HP, since iAS provides the simplicity that you’ve been wanting… yet within the QTP framework!
All clients and services companies are aware of the complexities, technical dependencies and substantial cost that typically limit the scope and reliability of ERP testing automation. Simply put, prior to the arrival of iAS project budgets generally could not support comprehensive testing automation required to deliver end–to-end Business Process Testing which is the ultimate goal of any application testing program. With the release of the iAS testing acceleration tools the promise of test automation can finally be realized.
IAS VALUE PROPOSITION
– Making Possible 100% BPT Automation Coverage
– Decreasing Automation Complexity
– Significantly Decreasing Automation Costs
– Eliminating Labor Costs For Repetitive Tasks
– Accelerating Time To Go-Live
Automatically Generate Automation Scripts & Components
iAS’ Primary function is to automatically generate immediately executable automation code. iAS eliminates repetitive and labor consuming tasks associated with the development and parameterization of automation script. The iAS scripting engine automatically generates fully parameterized testing automation scripts that are used to construct business process testing component.

Sophisticated Technology Developed For Ease Of Use
ibikus Automation Solutions’ iAS offering is a sophisticated automation technology platform which, regardless of the stage of your project, delivers a significantly accelerated time to go-live through innovative use of cutting edge automation and scripting technologies as well as a deep understanding of the practice of quality management for software applications. iAS is architected and developed with the primary goal being usability. iAS is installed in a matter of hours, requires no setup or build-up of complex libraries and most importantly requires no intensive training to achieve user proficiency. Ibikus delivers training on iAS in one 8 hour hands-on session. The most important pre-qualification required is a good understanding of the underlying business processes to be tested.
iAS is tightly integrated to HP QC to leverage HP’s robust script management and execution capability. This integration allows current users of the HP suite of testing tools to significantly extend the capabilities of their investment without requiring additional training and without introducing a new layer of complexity into the testing program. All iAS scripts are fully compatible with and editable using QTP allowing users complete flexibility to insert test scenario logic or calculations directly into the iAS script. iAS requires no special setup, automatically connects to HP QC and upon installation immediately makes possible:
􀁹 Automated Script Generation & Parameterization
􀁹 Automated Maintenance
􀁹 Full repeatability and reusability across projects
Reduce Testing Cost by Over 60%
Reduce Schedule by Over 80%
Easily Measurable Value
iAS delivers measurable ROI in the first cycle. Total automation script development and maintenance effort with iAS is less than the first cycle setup effort of other solutions. The testing schedule gains achieved with iAS translate directly into a significant acceleration in the time to go-live.
Cross Platform Support
Testing solutions are often required to perform across platform boundaries. iAS is uniquely positioned to make possible true cross-application business process testing. Whether the requirement spans SAP and Siebel or SAP and a custom developed application, iAS standards based scripts means enables cross-application execution runs. Our expertise in testing automation not only spans all the major solution vendors but also allows us to incorporate custom application environments into an end-to-end BPT program.
