The application specific monitoring is an application-aware monitoring platform that has many hooks into various types of SAP systems, including the SAP cloud systems. One of the biggest improvements from 7.1 to 7.2 Solution Manager surprisingly isn’t the Technical Monitoring capabilities, but it’s actually the UX that supports it. There are application specific dashboards now that are powerful in the SAP Fiori UX, meaning you can launch them on any device. Not only can you view these all singularly, you can actually view them in almost any combination of metrics on Solution Manager dashboards. Focused Insights provides a wide range of data and anything you cannot find you’re able to create using Dashboard builder. Due to the usage of Fiori, it’s become easier to train your users, adapt your new tools and monitor and adapt to changing system conditions.

With the ability to reuse templates, the functionality is a major improvement for both your SAP project management and day-to-day operations. Since you can build them once and deploy them over and over again, you will be saving time and control costs on repeated processes. In turn it also helps to standardize deployments. This will also deter unnecessary duplications and you won’t have to recreate role assignments for each new deployment. The 7.2 Solution Manager template support truly helps companies to adapt to a modern approach to ERP management.

The transparency of SAP Solution Manager 7.2 takes some love on the back end, Users will need a strong technical partner, like CoreALM to make sure all the metrics and reporting are being collected properly. As us how we can help.
