In this first half of a two-part series, learn how to begin the setup of SAP Solution Manager Adapter for SAP Quality Center by HP. See how you can prepare and meet the requirements for connecting the two systems.
Key Concept
Preparing for the integration between SAP Solution Manager and SAP Quality Center by HP requires you to install SAP Solution Manager Adapter ST-QCA 100: Add-On, activate SAP Quality Center enhancements in SAP Solution Manager, and install HP Enterprise Integration module for SAP applications 2.50.

Together, SAP Solution Manager and the SAP Quality Center by HP cover the complete testing process from requirements gathering to test case definitions and reporting. By integrating the two, you can seamlessly transfer requirements from your Business Blueprint — including specifications, business test requirements, and test objects (e.g., transactions, implementation guide activities, or custom programs) — to be tested in SAP Quality Center with a click of a button.

Quality assurance teams and quality managers use the information transferred to SAP Quality Center to create test plans and centrally manage test cases. Once the test cases are complete in the SAP Quality Center, they can transfer the test results back to the SAP Solution Manager project. The project now contains all the necessary information and test results that your company’s project managers need. Project managers have better control over testing processes and an improved ability to reuse critical information to support future application management projects, such as upgrades or continuous business-improvement projects.
