Not just SAP. Key challenge in all ERP/CRM systems is the test data creation. Not just that you need to maintain it and ensure that your script can handle all kind of data expected in the business process. Not just programming & loadrunner skills but you would need solid knowledge on various ERP modules, manual testing basics, overall ERP testing process, support process etc. It is recommended to involve a functional consultant to assist you during this phase. But it is also expected that an ERP performance tester will understand the "solution design" from a business/technical perspective and can design his test scripts with adequate test data variance. If you think you can record twice and diff to achieve all the scripting objectives, you would be left in a no man land trying to figure out why your scripts are failing. Also, don't expect a business user to provide you the test scenarios. It is expected that you will "select(&recommend)" the key scenarios from the solution design and write test scripts without expecting any business user to assist you. This is expected from the vendor based on the organization's history and their success in implementing ERP systems for several clients as a partner or SI.
