Sit up and pay attention: why you need ALM now
Some people think of IT management as routine, boring maintenance. Not so, my friends, not so.
SAP knows that strong application lifecycle management (ALM) is absolutely critical to the functioning of any business, much like the organs are to the body. When your company’s applications are running smoothly, your business can conquer new markets, innovate, and grow.
But when IT systems experience problems, the entire business suffers. Downtime, outages, lost data – the list goes on and on. Problems during implemention or upgrades can cost your company thousands, if not millions, in downtime and lost productivity.
That’s where ALM comes into play. When you have a targeted, effective ALM strategy, you not only mitigate risk to your business, you provide the rock solid foundation and peace of mind that your company needs to invest in innovation and expand its market reach.
Given the importance of ALM to SAP customers, we wrote a new whitepaper on SAP’s approach to ALM in the TechEd North America edition of SAPInsider. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn more about SAP’s ALM strategy , and which SAP products play key roles in it. To read the article, click on this link:
We are excited to publish this whitepaper just before SAP’s TechEd Las Vegas event http://www.sapteched.com/12/usa/home.htm , running from Oct. 15-19 at the Venetian in Las Vegas. As the premier event for SAP technology professionals in North America, we are excited to host a number of sessions featuring ALM products, along with our featured customers and industry partners.

See you in Las Vegas!
