I am pleased to announce that the new solution “SAP Solution Manager 7.2 and SAP S/4HANA – Build and Design in your S/4HANA Planning Phase” is now available.
This appliance is based on the previously-released SAP Solution Manager 7.2 solution for testing 7.1 solution documentation content activation, but includes the installation of SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SP02, SAP HANA 11, and the installation of Best Practice content for SAP S/4HANA. A a sample project plan has been downloaded from the Roadmap Viewer and imported into the Project Management area, and the solution documentation content activation process has been fully completed.
Once you create your instance, you can review the provided SAP S/4HANA Best Practice business process documentation in the new SAP Solution Manager 7.2 Process Management capability, as well as examine the sample project plan for an SAP S/4HANA implementation. You can even create an SAP S/4HANA instance in SAP CAL and connect it as a managed system.
As you know, SAP Solution Manager 7.2 is the most complete lifecycle management solution for SAP and non-SAP software. It allows you to continuously protect your investments, leverage innovation, and achieve value from your SAP solutions. It features a Web-based solution documentation, SAP Fiori-based SAP Solution Manager Launchpad, ready-made deployment best practices, integrated Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) graphical modeling; and enhanced project and release management capabilities.
The goal is to provide a comprehensive design and build environment that allows you to even more efficiently manage your existing ERP solutions and implement the next generation business suite from SAP: SAP S/4HANA.
As SAP Solution Manager 7.2 is still in Early Adopter Care status, this Free Trial has a 90-day duration, and cannot yet be extended via SAP CAL subscription. When SAP Solution Manager 7.2 enters General Availability, extension via subscription will be possible.
