Benefits of Application Life-cycle Management (ALM)

This series of posts has been an attempt to help customers improve their understanding of SAP’s effort in reducing total cost of ownership and risk by providing an integrated approach to ALM. The monthly EGI schedule is a good way to plan on getting your team engaged in learning the specific functionality of Solution Manager by attending free Expert Guided Instruction.

What are the benefits of doing this?

  • Improved business process visibility and transparency (single source of the truth)
  • Become a pro-active partner to the business
  • Leverage ITIL best practices for IT Service Management
  • CIO/Business dashboard reporting and Continuous Improvement framework
  • Reduce total cost of ownership

Identifying business benefit is the first step on the road to improving your Support capability and reducing cost. Once benefits and issues have been identified you can then begin planning a roadmap for adoption.
