John said you can manage releases with the new IT Portfolio and Project Management Integration with SAP Solution Manager.

In the past, this was not integrated with other life cycle processes and tools.

To support this strategy to execute major/minor releases, SAP has direct integration with cProjects in SolMan

From cProjects in SolMan project you have direct access to SOLAR* transactions

Your PMO organizations can manage 1 to many projects using cProjects.    You can manage staffing, tasks, and assignments

With SP10, CBTA has been enhanced per Figure 4.

The user interfaces are listed on Figure 4.  SAP has enabled custom function creation to create automated test scripts,  an improved wizards to step through set up, and an improved process flow analyzer to validate steps as you create test automation scripts.

John said this is a tool to investigate.
