SAP Uses Visual WebGui
Gizmox announces that software development company SAP saved more than $720,000 in development costs of its web-based global test management system using Visual WebGui's rapid application development framework. SAP's NetWeaver UI Test Development team delivered their VWG-based web application in just 9 months using only 2 developers, cutting SAP's expenditures on development time and personnel costs by more than 50% from the team's original 5 person, 18 month allocation.
Charged with creating a global, centralized test management application needed to manage testing resources and test plans being developed around the world, SAP's NetWeaver UI Test Development team was instructed to deliver a high quality solution fast. After toying with ASP.NET, the development team became dissatisfied with the quality and breadth of its controls. SAP considered the use of 3rd party web controls, but the price and complexities involved with implementation became too costly. But after evaluating the advantages of developing with Visual WebGui, SAP adopted the framework. The completed VWG-based application called SNAP (SAP NetWeaver Test Automation Project) delivers a great operational and cost-saving value to SAP. The web-based solution serves more than 500 users worldwide and has earned rave reviews from SAP executives as a highly responsive and usable system. Today, the application's ongoing maintenance and new releases are handled by an even smaller team than the original 2 developers.
