Application Lifecycle Management has been evolving in this ever changing IT landscape and is more so relevant in the Business of IT today. The typical challenges of IT have always been on how much to Capex into the Digital Transformation (obviously ensuring all current buzz words of AI and ML and Mobility and Cloud: creating the portfolio of change) whilst ensuring optimization and reduction of Opex around operations. While there are myriad tool-sets to take care of various aspects and elements of Build and Operate in IT; there is just One SAP Solution Manager taking care of Build, Simplify and Operate as an Integrated tool-set with its Single Source of Truth: Building Smart on time, within budget and Running Simple while keeping the lights on and reducing TCO.
