Now that we have built up the new Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) presence on SDN clearly visible as top level entity in the left hand navigation it is time to ramp down the old NetWeaver capabilities-based navigation.
That does not mean that all the content goes away. We reviewed the existing top level navigation pages and carefully integrated them into the new navigation. To make life easier for you here is a summary of the old pages and where you can find them in the new hierarchy:
NetWeaver Capabilities-> Lifecycle Management-> Landscape Design
This page is identical to Application Lifecycle Management->Technical Enablement->Landscape Design meaning the page moved in its entirety to the new navigation.
NetWeaver Capabilities-> Lifecycle Management-> Application Management
To be honest this category was always a mix of rather different topics. Some was centered around SLD and Solution Manager while you could find topics such as eCATT. Please refer to the Technical Enablement section where the ALM processes are listed and choose the one you are interested in.
NetWeaver Capabilities-> Lifecycle Management-> Operations
The old “Operations page” contained a lot of useful aliases. We safeguarded them under “Related Areas” on the overview ALM process page for Technical Operations
Reporting (Performance Reporting in BW)
Administration (Not authorized to view the specified document 8318)
Output Management (Not authorized to view the specified document 7799)
Performance Analysis and Measurements (http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/performance-analysis)
Work Centers in SAP Solution Manager (Work Centers in SAP Solution Manager)
NetWeaver Capabilities->Lifecycle Management->Software Logistics
As with “Operations” we kept the aliases for Software Logistics and added them to the “Related Areas” on the ALM process page for “Initial Setup” such as
Technical Implementation (Technical Implementation )
Installation (Installation )
Technical Configuration (Technical Configuration)
System Copy (System Copy and Migration)
The alias Software Maintenance (Software Support and Maintenance)
was moved to “Related Areas on Maintenance Management”.
I hope you are not completely confused now. Just think ALM and you will find the resources in a straight forward fashion.
If we forget something important please don’t hesitate to comment. The physical content is still available fortuantely.
