New page for Application Lifecycle Management
Hi ALM Community!
With the new topic page for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) in SAP Community we have not only a new design but also have completely restructured the expert content. Why did we change it? Key information is now structured by ALM products: SAP Cloud ALM, SAP Solution Manager and SAP Focused Run.With this change, we hope to make the most important resources such as SAP Support Portal, SAP Help Portal pages, demo systems and road maps more easily accessible to the communiy. Check out the ALM topic page yourself or keep reading for more information on what’s new and a community hack.
Tags, Latest Blogs and Questions
Main ALM tags now have their own category on the topic page to help you get started in SAP Community and keep you up to date on all things ALM. You can access the managed community tags directly from the main tags section and follow to get notified once a new blog post or question is published. The new design features a new tab called Community Content. This is where you can find all of the latest questions and blogs available for the main ALM tags:
- SAP Solution Manager
- SAP Cloud ALM
- SAP Focused Run
- Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager
- Focused Insights for SAP Solution Manager
SAP Community Hack – Save time and typing effort using prefilled SAP managed tags
From the header area of the topic page, there are two links that will prompt you to pages where you can ask a question or write a blog post. However, if you use the links with the same title at the bottom of the header you will find that they are both topig-page-specific!
This means using them can save you time and effort searching for the right tag since page-related tags are already prefilled. Simply adjust the tags to your needs by removing those that do not match your respective question or blog post. This hack also applies to other topic pages on SAP Community.
Featuring: Latest ALM News
The Featured Content section is reserved for the most current topics of all ALM products. For example, this week new support packages were released for SAP Solution Manager 7.2 as well as Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager and Focused Insights for SAP Solution Manager. As a result, I included the blog posts covering highlights of these new releases and will update this section with new information as it becomes available. Other featured content may include training announcements, technical articles or product information. Whenever you are looking for the latest trending ALM topics, this is the section to keep an eye on. If you have not already done so, bookmark the ALM topic page now for your next check-in with the community.

Hi Tonja! Many thanks to you and your team for creating the new ALM page and this blog post. Special thanks for the Community Content tab with a clear structure and easy-to-use filter options which is really helpful.
This will be one of my favourite SAP ALM pages 😉
Just one question: Is there a reason not to mention SAP Community Wiki pages in the Topic Resources tab like https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SM/Getting+Started+WIKI+for+SAP+Solution+Manager and https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SM/Focused+Insights which I visit quite often?
Hi Marco, thanks for your kind words and the valuable feedback! We're trying to keep the page structure clear. That's why there are currently only few selected links on the page to keep it simple. For example, we link to SAP Support Portal pages where you can find a wide range of knowledge resources and further links.
Great to know you're a frequent visitor of the Wiki pages, will consider this for the next page update!
