Microfocus UFT and LoadRunner are doing this for a long time. The new player is Tricentis but I didn't saw it working yet.

Tricentis and SAP have announced a strategic technology partnership that has the Tricentis products now part of the SAP pricebook. 

More importantly though, Tricentis Tosca is being used by SAP to test their own releases. Tosca will replace the SAP Component-Based Test Automation engine and the Tricentis LiveCompare product is replacing the SAP Change Impact Analysis tooling in SolMan. 

Tricentis developers are being co-located with the SAP development team so the Tricentis products will keep pace with SAP releases. The press release is at

In my experience with SAP Core Banking implementation, the best tool to automate without pain and with a strength of agility and support, have been the Microfocus ALM tools (UFT One, UFT One Mobile, LoadRunner, Quality Control Manager) this tool since it emerged in Mercury, and then when it was acquires by HP, advanced too much in functionality and now with Microfocues it is the best tool for all testing life cicle.

Micro Focus delivers a wide portfolio of ADM products that include support for the most common SAP platforms, and helps organizations to manage and execute their SAP transformations at speed and quality. Customers who choose the Micro Focus portfolio know that they are drawing on a long and close partnership between SAP and Micro Focus, which has been focused from the start on ensuring customer success and satisfaction throughout complex SAP transformations.

Organizations manage their back office systems with tools such as
ALM, but as they modernize the front office, they are moving to ALM
Octane to manage the lifecycle of the mobile interfaces, cloud, and
web systems that access them. The front office and the back office are
connected through their data flow, and hence, the lifecycle management
systems must be aligned, through synchronization between ALM
Octane and ALM. Test, defect, and other artefacts can be synchronized
transparently, with both systems being kept updated in real-time. While
there may be different teams working on the front and back end development,
they can collaborate and ensure that nothing is missed.

1. SOLMAN FOCUSED BUild ( Test Management ) - Focused build knowledge is required to utilise it effectively. 

2. ALM( Test Management ) - Easy to Integrate with SOLMAN and SAP test automations tools like Tricentis TOSCA & Worksoft

3. Tricentis qTest( Test Management )- Easy to learn and use for test management.Can manage Agile and traditional models effectively.

3. Tricentis TOSCA( Test Automation)- Easy to learn and can integrated with SOLMAN Focused build , ALM & qTest effectively for test management.

What can be done to reduce the chances of software failing?

Common causes for software failure are: 1. Poor requirements definition 2. Poor programming skills in the given environment 3. No interest in or knowledge of the wider software environment causing problems in the integration 4. Not enough resources or time for development resulting in poor software quality 5. Tests do not cover changes in software What can be done to reduce the chances of software failing? Ad 1.: Define acceptance criteria together with the requirements and use these within test cases Ad 1. & 5.: Write use cases with the requirements definition as the basis for test case creations Ad 1.: Write down together with business users a risk-weighted (frequency of use x potential damage) process landscape and link new requirements to this process and its risk. Preferable recheck/rework the risk weighting for the individual requirements. Use this for test planning resp. prioritizing in test case creation and execution as well then in test reporting. Ad 2. & 3.: Proper team management and specific training programs incl. learning from experienced colleagues in the given environment Ad 4.: Proper project and/or backlog management Ad 5.: Analyze what functions are used in production, what is changed with the developments, and what are covered with test runs. Cover identified gaps between developments and test coverage with additional test cases.

This is a good question.  Ideally, if you can find a person that is very well experienced in the Industry/product domain and is experienced automating it yields better results. For example, a tester who has a lot of experience with SAP will be much more successful testing SAP than someone who is an excellent/experienced tester without much SAP experience.
