Comparing Figaf IRT with SAP PIT

SAP has recently published SAP PIT, which is a testing tool for SAP PI/PO. Costumers have asked me about the difference between SAP PIT and Figaf IRT. Does it actually matter which tool you use? The answer is: Yes, it does matter. In this blog post, I will give you an overview to help you to understand the differences.

The Figaf tool is a lot faster to use for creating and running test cases on. It also have a lot better integration with a DevOps/Continues Delivery process so you can deliver your integrations lot faster.

This is based on the 7.5 SP15. SAP has a roadmap to improve the tool but I do not know it.

The Figaf tool we are adding options to also work with creating Documentation of your scenarios, your changes and the test your are running. It also has a component that allows you to monitor the system for anomalies and report custom errors to users. Next release will also feature integration with CTS+ enabling you to run test and configuration on the objects that are changed. So it is much more than just a test suite.
