Process chains via Solution manager vs Process chains via BW ?


We are currently using BW 7.3 system and use process chains for all dataload activities. We have been suggested to use solution manager for monitoring our process chain activities.

I have searched the forum but didn't find any article about pros and cons of using solution manager for monitoring Process chains. I am looking for information where using solution manager would be advantageous for monitoring PCs and also looking for downfalls if any. Are there any activities which we cannot do using sol manager which is possible only in BW?

    Hello Akshara,

    Only process chain monitoring is possible through solution manager, all other activities (scheduling the chain, fixing errors etc,) will still happen in BW system. Solution manager just provides a consolidated view/console to monitor jobs in all your connected systems (ECC, BW, CRM etc.).

    You will have to look at the release notes and road map of SAP Solution manager to look at what plans SAP has for Solution manager and if it fits your expectations.
