Solution Manager Maintenance:

A Reminder that Solman 7.0 or below maintenance expires at the end of 2013. There is no extended maintenance available so it is a good idea to start planning for an upgrade to 7.1 now to ensure continued maintenance support. Please note with the release of SP09/10 in Q4 many of the main EGI’s are not being run.

  • Solman 7.0 Mainstream Maintenance ends Q4 2013 (7.1 will be supported for 6 years)
  • Support Pack 9/10 is scheduled for release in Sep/Oct (see Solution Manager Roadmap).
    • Integration of eProjects
    • Solution Documentation – process step variants

      Thanks Luis, trying to raise awareness of the ALM space as process is the key to adoption rather than tools. Wish I could post in both!
