Panaya's platform releases testing "bottlenecks" for ERP agility
BANGALORE, India and PALO ALTO, CA, May 5, 2016 /CNW/ - Panaya, an Infosys company, announces the addition of over 200 new clients since being acquired by Infosys in March 2015. Panaya's next generation SaaS platform Quality Suite (PCQ) enables faster changes and continuous improvement of ERP systems, releasing testing bottlenecks that hinder ERP agility, supporting the organizations' digital transformation.
Doron Gerstel, Panaya's CEO, says, "Panaya's growth goes hand-in-hand with organizations' growing challenge to keep up with the pace of business while ensuring certainty and quality of their ERP. The need for ERP agility magnifies the complexity of ERP in times of digital transformation."
Panaya's next generation SaaS platform quality suite (PCQ) is using analytics and crowd-wisdom engines based on interrogation of over 30,000 ERP landscapes. The platform is constantly "learning" the ERP vendor code as well as the organization's code, which allows for faster changes and continuous improvement of ERP systems. Since testing and specifically UAT becomes the new bottleneck for ERP agility, PCQ also includes the ability to manage the testing process and collaborate effectively between IT and business stakeholders along the release process. This accelerates testing process, increases automation potential and ensures client organizations test and fix only what is necessary yet miss nothing. With Panaya, organizations reach ERP agility faster - with zero time to change, zero risk, and zero defects. The result is increased rate of change with minimal risk and defects.
"The move to ERP agility also means that we need to look differently at how we handle UAT since it is becoming the new bottleneck of digital transformation," said Sebastian Hebert, Technical Director, Shiseido. "Panaya is like a light in the darkness. We all of a sudden have the visibility of what we need to test and the confidence that we can share this with the business users. We know the impact precisely, something we never knew in the past."
