SAP Solution Manager End of Maintenance

The upcoming end of maintenance for SAP Solution Manager is a reality that no SAP customer can ignore. But does the thought of now having to deal with the implementation of the new SAP Cloud ALM terrify you? On top of that, you also have to deal with the high operating costs for the old Solution Manager.

Instead of preparing for a lengthy implementation project with countless consultant days, use the occasion to look for a better alternative.

SAP Solution Manager – a look back

SAP Solution Manager worked well for us, but as it got older, its weaknesses became more and more noticeable. These include lengthy implementation, high maintenance, limited usability, and limited integration options.

The maintenance for SAP Solution Manager ends in 2027. You could, in a best-case scenario, extend maintenance to 2030, but only if you pay an additional Extended Maintenance fee.

SAP Cloud ALM is claimed to be an alternative solution. Although the solution has been available for some time now, it does not provide an appropriate replacement for SolMan, as it has a less comprehensive feature set. In particular, SAP teams that rely on change and request management (ChaRM) feel let down. Cloud ALM is currently most suitable for companies that exclusively use cloud solutions from SAP.

It’s time to say goodbye to SolMan and consider a new solution.
