In my role as a product manager for SAP Solution Manager, it’s my job to update SAP’s customers, partners, and colleagues on what new innovations are planned for the platform. At SAP TechEd 2013 last October, I presented a lecture covering the roadmap for SAP Solution Manager, revealing the latest features. As part of the Two Value Releases per Year strategy, SAP Solution Manager was enhanced in both the “Build SAP Like a Factory” as well as “Run SAP Like a Factory” approaches. Integration with IT portfolio and project management helps customers plan and coordinate their releases and tasks, from project planning to implementation into production. A new central transport system infrastructure provides safe and flexible innovations to change management, and technical operations improvements extend and unify business process and technical monitoring. The recording of my SAP TechEd presentation is available below:
Since SAP TechEd last year, support package stack 11 has been released, which provides the new Scope and Effort Analyzer. This exciting functionality enables customers to adjust and test only what matters when managing innovation projects, providing change and custom code modification impact analysis while automatically generating a preliminary business blueprint prior to physical deployment. Detailed information is available at the new site: http://service.sap.com/sea .
In addition, a new version of SAP Solution Manager is currently in development which will enhance business innovation and value realization though graphical process design, model companies and pre-configuration while supporting hybrid SAP cloud solutions and SAP Business Suite on HANA. This new collaborative process design approach will streamline business and IT interactions, allowing both the IT users and Lines of Business to enjoy faster business innovation through a simple, intuitive and flexible process design application.

Best of all, this week I received notice that I will present the latest roadmap content in person at SAP d-code in Las Vegas, and hope you can join me to learn even more details about what’s planned for SAP Solution Manager.
