SAP Solution Manager supports the centralized control of all types of changes that become necessary during the lifecycle of solutions. To orchestrate these changes, SAP offers Application Lifecycle Management.
Accelerating innovation while reducing risk and TCO requires a holistic application lifecycle management approach. Managing an SAP-centric solution effectively presupposes a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge about the solution itself. The main focus will be on activities that are required to set live business driven changes, i.e. the implementation or improvement of business processes in an SAP-centric solution. Application lifecycle management comprises four major areas as outlines below to orchestrate the entire solution end-to-end.
- Incident, Problem and Request Management
- Portfolio and Project Management
- Solution Documentation and Implementation
- Change, Release and Test Management
