The SAP Test Acceleration and Optimization™ (SAP TAO ™) software streamlines the creation and maintenance of ERP business process testing. It helps Quality Analyst specialists to break down application into components. Assemble test cases through a simple interface using drag and drop components in Quality Center. Test script can be parameterized for flexible reuse. Maintained easily and inexpensively, even when screens, flows, or service packs change.

Features of SAP TAO ™ 1.0 version released in 2007:

Inspect: Captures the data in a screen or transaction and determines its validity. It enables you to create and maintain a list of transactions and screens.

Import/Export: Primarily runs in background mode to export and import data from the SAP Test Acceleration and Optimization™ client to the SAP Quality Center.

Consolidator: Gathers all the objects and data in an SAP Quality Center test script and creates a single component.

Connect: Connection settings for SAP and Quality Center

Enhancements in SAP TAO ™ 2.0 versions released in 2009:

PFA (Process flow Analyzer): It records user interactions and the sequence of screens to execute a business process, in the SAP TAO ™ repository. It automates inspection and creation of the test components and a parameterized draft transition test case. It automatically creates the data table spreadsheet with the DT columns and values used during the recording process.

Repository: The SAP Test Acceleration and Optimization™ repository is a part of the SAP Solution Manger system and is used to store:
User interaction and sequence of the screens in a business process.
Information specific to SAP Test Acceleration and Optimization™ that cannot be retrieved by other tools.

Change Analyzer: It helps you to analyze the impact of changes due to upgrades, SAP patches or Custom development on a test, components or consolidated component.
