Based on a jointly defined ALM strategy, we holistically implement your company’s Application Lifecycle Management. This enables you to implement your SAP solutions quickly and operate them cost-effectively.
We analyze your current situation for the areas of implementation, operation and optimization of your SAP solution landscape according to ITIL®. Based on this, we derive recommendations on which processes, tools or organizational changes should be implemented with a planning horizon of six to twelve months.
When defining your ALM strategy, we jointly focus on the following aspects:
- Maturity of current ALM processes: Which processes should be optimized or newly introduced?
- What potential for improvement exists and how great is the actual benefit of these measures?
- What is the best way to technically implement your ALM strategy?
The Solution Documentation in SAP Solution Manager and Focused Build is not only the single source of truth for the documentation of your SAP solutions. It is the starting point for the definition of requirements, for example, an important element for the planning of waves and sprints, or the basis for the structure of your test management.
Benefit from our experience in building the perfect solution documentation for you: Very pragmatically, e.g. in a module-oriented approach or highly sophisticated with branch concept, sites, scopes and own customer attributes.
Find out which successful approaches our customers practice under very different conditions.

New requirements demand agile implementation of changes to your SAP solutions. Release Management enables the timely implementation of new requirements for your business processes with an acceptable risk for your existing SAP applications.
Take advantage of our know-how and the functionalities for systematic release management in SAP Solution Manager, Focused Build or SAP Cloud ALM.
- Definition of the release types and development of the release calendar
- Analysis and recommendation for the system landscape, if necessary separation of implementation and maintenance landscape
- Concept for technical implementation
- Derivation of guidelines and procedural instructions for operational Release Management
The success factors for Release Management are early consideration of the technical implementation and active discussion of the changes with business departments, project managers and SAP administrators.
Change Request Management
Change Request Management (ChaRM) in SAP Solution Manager documents all changes over the entire lifecycle of your applications in an audit-proof manner – from the creation of a change request and workflow-supported approval to implementation and going live.
Thanks to its close integration with SAP Transport Management, this is where SAP Solution Manager plays out its main advantage over other solutions. Transport requests are created centrally and automatically distributed to the SAP systems. Take advantage of our practical experience for a smooth implementation or optimization of your Change Request Management processes.
