Dear Solution Manager and SAP HANA Folks out there,
I’m happy to hear that the lecture ITM110 “How does SAP Solution Manager support SAP HANA” got selected as “Lecture of the week”. In this blog I want to give you some insights into the content of this session.
The major goal of this session is to give the audience a broad overview and understanding about the SAP Solution Manager features that provide dedicated features for SAP HANA – both, for existing customers (that are already familiar with SAP Solution Manager) but also new customers (that haven’t heard about SAP Solution Manager yet).
Not everything is new!
The good message is: Not everything has changed! If you are familiar with typical features of SAP Solution Manager such as the Monitoring and Alerting functionalities or the Change Control Management portfolio, you can easily adopt and transfer this knowledge towards managing an SAP HANA solution. Of course, there might be some differences hear and there – however, this is nothing special compared to other system or technologies you might manage already today.
Dedicated HANA related functions
The sessions starts with a general introduction to SAP Solution Manager, the concepts behind and how this fits into the SAP HANA story. After that we talk about how to setup a connection between your SAP Solution Manager system and your SAP HANA system, before we dive into the several functional areas, such as:
- How to monitor SAP HANA via SAP Solution Manager?
- How to do Root Cause Analysis with SAP Solution Manager?
- How can I extend my Change Control Management functions towards HANA?
General SAP Solution Manager features
At the end, we will quickly go through some general topics and features in SAP Solution Manager that might not be different for HANA compared to other technologies but still provide value add and benefits to manage SAP HANA, as the goal from SAP Solution Manager is to support the entire application lifecycle.
If you haven’t been able to attend this session at one of the SAP TechEd events last year, you can watch the online replay via SAP TechEd Live:
I hope you enjoy(ed) the session and it will help you to understand how you can leverage the potential and functionalities that SAP Solution Manager provides also for your HANA systems.
