ALPHARETTA, Ga., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As more companies upgrade from Oracle R11i to R12, a disturbing trend of expensive mistakes is emerging, making it clear that quality testing is a key requirement that can be the difference between successful, on-time implementations and disastrous rework. Rolta's comprehensive Testing Services bring peace of mind and predictable expense to companies seeking to modernize their current Oracle systems.

Rolta, a global Oracle Platinum Partner, has performed countless successful R12 upgrades, and recommends that companies plan to incorporate a comprehensive testing phase to the project plan, whether done in-house or outsourced.  But with dozens of applications to manage across multiple business units, stretched IT organizations are increasingly seeking outsourced application testing assistance.

"Upgrading to a new software release can bring significant challenges," said Dale Costantino, executive vice president of Outsourcing and Managed Services at Rolta. "With an R12 upgrade, it's critically important to deploy the right skills to create solid test plans and to conduct the testing in a systematic and comprehensive manner."

In addition to supporting companies through the R12 upgrade, Rolta offers testing services for every phase of the Software Testing Life Cycle, with special expertise and domain orientation focusing on Financial Services, Manufacturing, Retail, Oil & Gas, Utilities and Healthcare. Services include automated and interactive Functional Testing, System Testing, and Performance Engineering to address any business process changes, not only for EBS application testing, but also for ERP, CRM and other applications on multiple technology platforms.

"Rolta has leveraged its extensive experience gathered over several testing projects on various applications and numerous platforms to establish a best-practice based testing template and protocol.  This set of standardized capabilities and tools helps to reduce the customer's risk and costs of software maintenance," Costantino said. "Companies benefit not only from Rolta's extensive testing expertise, but also from the documentation created that provides valuable insights for in-house teams." 

For example, in an R12 upgrade test project, Rolta creates a playbook of test scripts that contains documentation of all required technical activities, patches, scripts, etc., to create a useable instance, as well as all pre and post upgrade functional activities, including data preparation and set-ups for both existing and new modules. Using test scripts from prior implementations or upgrade activities as baseline scripts, Rolta updates scripts for new functionality introduced in R12 as well as for business process changes. The test team also solicits end-user input to develop and enumerate the script scenarios and make sure all customizations are addressed and thoroughly tested.
