John said there is a commitment to support SAP Hana in a proactive monitoring fashion.  In SP4 there is some monitoring – see this blog for details.  SP5 will provide full integration of SLT and Data Services

Figure 5 shows management dashboards, which are Xcelsius based.  With Enterprise Support the pre delivered management dashboards are available. You do not need a separate BusinessObjects license for these dashboards.  If you want to develop your own dashboards you will need a license

Figure 5 shows the additional dashboards provided

Figure 6 shows “Interactive Continuous Improvement”.  John said this will allow you a deep dive into technical data in your landscape.

As adding more uses, or changes, continuous improvement will show you the impacts of these changes

On the business process side, additional items planned are benchmarking, trend, age and enhanced filter functionality to “slice and dice”

  • Hello Tammy,

    Very nice preview, i'm working on it now and the delta from 4 to 5 is impressive, i've had to relaunch the solman_setup because some configuration were gone right after the update.

    But monitoring in general is awesome as usual 😉

    I'm working on hana as well, and it's not so intuitive to plug solman on it.

    But the global thing is very good.
