One question we get is, everything that Jira has a lot, can we have that in Solution Manager as well?

Yes, and more. The problem with Jira, if you are building from scratch, it is code based to manage it. With SAP, we have transport and different developments that we do. There is nothing in Jira from a project level, Jira feel and look – but all SAP. No licensing costs.

We’re currently helping a company with a global rollout of SAP with a client for 200 different locations. Our team came in later than usual for this project, but, we can really jump in at any phase. We came in, took user stories and put them into SolMan. From Project Management to work streams, then provided additional tools – ex, Scrum boards. Ask us about our SAP Focused Build projects.

If you would like any more information, please let us know how we can be of service to you. Request a meeting with us here.
