Happy anniversary, SAP Cloud ALM!

It’s just about a year ago that SAP Cloud ALM saw the light of day on May 29, 2020. The new member of the SAP application lifecycle management portfolio started as completely new product. At the beginning, it offered foundational activities in implementing intelligent enterprise scenarios on SAP S/4HANA Cloud essentials. And SAP Cloud ALM initially included operations support for a modest number of SAP cloud services. 

SAP Cloud ALM has already received many birthday wishes. Watch some of them in these videos by clicking on the photos:

The increase of supported solutions is another great achievement. Starting as a service for SAP S/4HANA Cloud only, SAP Cloud ALM  supports 19 different solutions already today. This includes all versions of SAP S/4HANA and other cloud services like SAP Ariba, SAP FieldGlass, and SAP SuccessFactors. Even on-premise solutions are supported now, like SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA on premise. SAP Cloud ALM is capable of supporting hybrid environments. The goal is to support all components of the intelligent enterprise suite.

And for sure: SAP Cloud ALM will keep on growing. See the product roadmap for planned enhancements.
