Thank you to everyone who organised this incredible summit, especially in light of the hardships brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. We at TTC are extremely proud to have been a sponsor for this event as it was extremely well received within the community; it was an honor taking part in this event, and we look forward to attending the next one in person to help offer more guidance when it comes to SAP Testing. TTC offers SAP Testing Services by leveraging tools such as Tricentis LiveCompare, which uses Impact Analysis and has been proven to cut the test scope by 85%.
