In mid-September of 2011, the SAP Solution Manager 7.1 was released at TechEd in Las Vegas, Nevada. This latest version offered a significant amount of improvements over the earlier version of the SAP Solution Manager.
However, as the earlier version the SAP Solution Manager did not garner many users, getting new customers to look at the benefits of SAP Solution Manager 7.0 and 7.1 has been somewhat challenging.
This situation occurs despite the tremendous cost saving advantages that the new SAP Solution Manager Versions offer.
“Solution Manager 7.0 and 7.1 feature a number of improvements that can result in tangible cost savings. However, many [customers] still think about the 3.0 release when it comes to Solution Manager,” says Anja-Christina Bruehling, the Vice President of Global Partner Management and Training in SAP's Active Global Support division.
Some of the helpful improvements include:
A Web-based user interface for incident and management
A perceptive user interface for the Tester work list in the Test Management section.
New end-to-end monitoring functionality that comes complete with out-of-the-box monitoring templates for both non-SAP and SAP systems
Special monitoring applications that are also available for applications that include SAP NetWeaver BW, SAP NetWeaver Process Integration, and SAP BusinessObjects.
These varied features provide a number of benefits to companies – including business and IT process transparency. Overall then, the SAP Solution Manager 7.1 offers a tremendous amount of benefits for both small and larger businesses alike.
