Do you have any ideas how we could improve the management of lifecycle aspects of your apps running on SAP Cloud Platform or how to ease applying DevOps principles? Maybe you are missing that specific software logistics or DevOps feature that would make your life so much easier on SAP Cloud Platform. Then, the SAP Continuous Influence session for SAP Cloud Platform – Platform Foundation is the right place for you!


What topics are covered?

The Lifecycle Management category covers all aspects around the lifecycle of your apps running on SAP Cloud Platform, such as:

  • Deployment (including the deployment infrastructure and the multitarget application approach)

  • Change/transport management (including SAP Cloud Platform Transport Management service, integration of transport management into Change Request Management [ChaRM]/Quality Gate Management [QGM] of SAP Solution Manager for hybrid change management, and the interplay of Continuous Integration with transport management)

  • Observability (covering the topics of monitoring/logging, SAP Cloud Platform Alert Notification, ops automation with SAP Cloud Platform Automation Pilot, and hybrid supportability)

Besides the lifecycle management topics outlined above, the SAP Cloud Platform – Platform Foundation channel also covers the categories multi-cloud, security services, and Continuous Integration & Delivery (CI/CD) – just select the right category when submitting your idea!

How can I participate?

Directly access the session on SAP Cloud Platform – Platform Foundation by logging on with your S-user here:

Browse through existing improvement requests submitted by other customers and vote for any request you wish to support – or, if your requirement should not already be covered elsewhere, submit new ideas in the category 'Lifecycle Management' (or in any of the other categories 'Multi-Cloud', 'Security Services' and 'Continuous Integration & Delivery' of this influence session).

Any improvement request that reached the voting threshold will be reviewed my me and my colleagues from development during the next review cycle. Afterwards, you will get informed on the outcome via blog post on the session’s homepage. More information about how the process works in detail, the selection criteria, and timelines is given directly on the Web site.

Take this great opportunity to influence our lifecycle management, software logistics, and DevOps processes on SAP Cloud Platform! We are looking forward to your feedback!
