This acceleration is accomplished by virtue of automating the creation of test components for only a few specific transactions related to SAP.

First only the draft scenarios are created which are meant for single transactions, and then these are put together in a scenario test case. The SAP Test Acceleration and Optimization also assist with the maintenance of components and test cases by merging them into SAP Solution Manager’s Business Process Change Analyzer.
SAP TAO works hand in hand with Quick Test Professional (QTP) and Quality centre (QC), in which QTP works as the execution engine and all the test scenarios are created and driven from QC through the different business components.
