    Hi Arun ,

    Asset Mgmt is indeed one of the ITIL supported processes of Solman as mentioned in the above link.

    Laptops can be created as CIs (Configuration Items) in ITIM and all the requirements you mentioned can be met.

    If you don't need automated discovery, you can use just Solman ITSM, creating individual Laptops as Ibase Components

    To signify ownership - We can assign business partners to Ibase components for ownership)

    To signify retired or in use - Use either text notations or hierarchy ("Retired Laptops"/"In Use Laptops") to classify them

    I recommend you to check the below blog which talks about certified processes in Solman for ITIL.

    Hi Arun,

    To create asset manually, you can create it as an Ibase component in t-code IB52.

    How you classify it depends on your requirement.

    By a thoughtful use of naming convention and hierarchy you should be able to map pretty much your asset base as Ibase components.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the answer and its very helpful.

    I have few questions regarding integrating SAP Solman with SAP ITIM

    1) Do i need to install Add on(RTCISM100) in Solman to integrate with SAP ITIM..? or Solman sap ITIM configuration in Solman_setup is enough.

    2) There is no monitoring template available for SAP IT IM Monitoring.

    3) Do we need to buy any License from sap for sap ITIM integration with solman?

    Thanks

    Hi Arun ,

    I am not aware of any such report.

    I am sure you can make such a report yourself through custom development.

    Regards,

    Shaswat
