SAP Solution Manager: Tools for Integrated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

Today, IT-supported processes are just as commonplace in medium-sized companies as they are in global corporations. Innovative software solutions facilitate collaboration in sales, production, customer service, finance and human resources management. In order to avoid getting sand in the gears, companies must continuously monitor and further develop their system landscape. This includes central monitoring, consistent documentation and reliable test management and change request management (ChaRM).


SAP Solution Manager gives you the tools you need to establish central Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). ALM-specific processes and functions in SAP Solution Manager support the entire life cycle of each application (development and realization, implementation and go-live, operation, maintenance and after-life support, test management and change request management).

SAP Solution Manager: Your business benefits at a glance

Facilitate IT administration

Applying patches, installing new software solutions, upgrading systems – the administration of company-wide application landscapes is a mammoth task. Consistent, centralized monitoring helps to control applications efficiently and counteract technical problems.

Optimise operational procedures

As digitalization progresses, company-wide IT landscapes are becoming increasingly complex. SAP ITService Management (ITSM) helps to plan, control, and optimize systems to fit. This shortens processing times, streamlines IT operations and improves collaboration.

Prevent incidents

A perfectly functioning IT is a fundamental success factor for every company. In many places, however, systematic test management is still hard to find. Automated test routines and tests help to avoid system failures and optimize processes.

Reduce friction losses

If you want to keep complex SAP landscapes under control, automated monitoring is a must. Only if evaluations are bundled centrally and clearly arranged and responsibilities are clearly recognizable can process faults be promptly remedied.

Accelerate system adaptations

Eliminating performance losses, system malfunctions and failures costs IT departments a lot of time and money: change requests must be checked, errors identified, corrections must be made. A central SAP Change Request Management (ChaRM) simplifies planning and monitoring and increases maintenance and project efficiency.
