    Hey,

    Welcome to solution manager forum

    SAP Solution manager

    The SAP Solution Manager supports you throughout the entire lifecycle of your solutions, from the Business Blueprint thru configuration to production operation. It provides central access to tools methods and preconfigured content, that you can use during the evaluation, implementation, and productive operation of your systems.

    with SOLUTIONMANAGER manager you can reduce the system administrator's effort to maintain users in the R/3 environment. SOLUTIONMANAGER allows you to maintain the users centrally in one system. The information is then automatically distributed to the dependent systems.

    Hi,

    Whew, its a big question. But as you are a FICO consultant, Let me tell you something about project management, testing, e-learning management functionality of SOLMAN.

    You would have heared about ASAP methodology. SOLMAN has many such roadmaps as predefined content within it, which you can use to streamline the project management process. First you define scope, milestones, project members,the logical components on which the project is going to be carried out.

    You can make use of the existing Business Process Repository and define your own business process in Solution Manager and document your processes.

    Once you finish with business process definition and documenting, you proceed to configuring for the process that you have defined. This configuration is done in your R/3 or SCM or any of your systems but through Solution Manager. Solution Manager takes care that you don't go out of scope.

    Once you have configured, you do testing for the nodes that you have defined as processes in business blueprint (An example can be Invoice Verification Process, tested and the results stored centrally)

    Once your project implementation is done. You can upload your training material which can be used for e-learning, some simple configurations need to be done for this.

    Still a lot of features there.

    Hope i was clear and it helps.

    Feel free to revert back.

      In my experience SLM is a toolbox for running a SAP installation. There is the projectmanagement based on ASAP that Raguman_C has outlined above. It incorporates roll-outs based on templates and both manual and automated test tools as well as a testmanagement platform. In addition you get the tools to monitor your SAP installation (and non SAP components to a lesser extent), tools for the administrative management of your installation tuneing and EWAs, a complete service desk, and a tool to manage documentation and e-learning. Let it be said that some elements have their weak points, but all in all i consider SLM to a wellrounded toolbox for running and keeping your installation up-to-date.

      There are many good products that can do all the various jobs as well or even better but to my knowledge not one that can manage all aspects and SLM does that well.

      Kindly

      Martin
