Solution Manager 7.2 Roadmap Webcast Part 2 – Cloud HANA Question Answer

Part 1 is Solution Manager 7.2 Roadmap Webcast Summary Part 1

The usual legal disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.

Cloud Adoption


Figure 1: Source: SAP

When systems are on a Private Cloud such SAP HEC there is no real difference for SolMan

For a Public Cloud – such as SuccessFactors, Ariba , the plan is to allow SolMan to provide services for public

LMDB  will have new interface


Figure 2: Source: SAP

Public cloud performance monitoring  will be in Solman and will be in 7.2

It is also included on SolMan 7.1 SP12

Figure 3 shows how to register cloud service with a guided procedure

Figure 4 shows interface and connection monitoring that is “In the pipeline”

All customers who have a valid support contract can use Solman on HANA without additional licenses

This will come with transition support, standards, and more


Figure 6: Source: SAP

Figure 6 is not part of 7.2 but a strategic message for the future

SolMan will have a “Fiori like experience”

Notice too that the reports will come from HANA Live, not BI/BW

Install, register, do an upgrade will be improved with maintenance planner shown in Figure 7


Figure 8: Source: SAP

Figure 8 shows there is a ramp-up for maintenance planner today

SAP is looking for ramp-up customers

Maintenance optimizer will be gone in 7.2

Figure 9 shows there is no new CRM release in 7.2; only an enhancement package

Figure 11, was already previously announced

Question & Answer

Q: Java stack for SolMan – 7.1 – some functionality is removed from Java stack – going forward could we have Solman without the Java stack

A: 7.2 will not be possible and Java is still required

Q: Business process design – 7.1 – Advanced Business Process Blueprinting – how will it work in 7.2?

A: First customer came back with feedback with lots of feedback and checked architecture and decided to rethink process modeling which is why coming out of new environment

Advanced blueprint will not work on 7.2; only a few customers are using it

Q: What is the planned support for current 3rd Party Tools: HPQC, Redwood CPS, Wily, Productivity Pak?

A: Will continue to support interfaces in 7.1; will not have interface support during ramp-up – there are changes coming  – architecture is changing, want it stable before offer interfaces

Q: What happens if upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 and have open projects with transports?

A: Current feedback – will have to close project; they are revisiting with development organization – customers are unhappy – customers want to continue to work after the upgrade

Q: Will a planner Excel sheet be available, allow them to find risk and timelines?

A: Not at this point but plan to offer the system – need to upgrade and see what the situation is


Hopefully we’ll learn more details at SAP Insider’s Basis  SAP Administration 2015
