Recordings from Webinar Series


The IT world of SAP customers has grown much more challenging. Instead of one single SAP R/3 system, there are now multiple systems, integrated by the flow of business processes involving different SAP Suite products and middleware, including mobility. Data and process consistency is not provided by one integrated database design but by means of messaging, data, and UI unification.
It has become much more challenging to keep track of the entire, integrated system landscape. If there is an incident or a problem, it is more difficult to judge the relevance of certain activities.

This situation has made it essential that SAP customers and SAP Support can rely on a central source of current information on the customer solution and system landscape.

Supportability is the capability to monitor the SAP Mobile Platform to find errors or exceptions, trace or debug to identify the errors, and provide hardware and/or software solutions to resolve the issue or error.

Once a system or application is running in a production mode, it becomes important to make sure that it stays running efficiently. The day to day operation, configuration, monitoring can be found under the Life Cycle Management topic (see tabs). Once you identify an anomaly in the system you can make use of the resources below to help, identify, trace and resolve the issue.

SAP's Solution Manager is the central, integrated end-to-end orchestration platform to accelerate innovation, manage the application lifecycle and run SAP centric solutions like a factory. The current release of SAP Solution Manager is SAP Solution Manager 7.1.

Solution Manager started support of SUP/SMP with release of 2.1, and added significant capabilities with the introduction of SMP 2.2. Moving on.

Details on supported scenarios and in-depth resources can be found on the Solution Manager Manager section (see tab).
