Seeing now how Signavio works, I see a big limitation in Solution Manager's Solution Documentation. What is the approach SAP is taking to eventually stop improvements in SolMan's SolDoc for the companies to move to Signavio? I mean, are they both planned to live in parallel, receiving SolMan a little enhancement here a little enhancement there, but never scheduled to reach the capabilities of Signavio? or will SAP slowly and steadily move companies to use Signavio instead of the limited SolDoc, which only advantage I see today is that due to the branch concept, deployment of new BPs only happens as developments are promoted to Production. In other words, the releasing of final BPs is a different concept in SolMan compared to the governance in Signavio. Is there going to be a single solution at the end of the road, for all?
in general, both tools will continue work based on SAPs maintenance strategy (2027 for SAP Solution Manager 7.2) and co-exist in their area. Please keep in mind that Solution Manager is not only about Solution Documentation. Moreover, it’s about the application lifecycle management (ALM) in the phases of discover, prepare, design, build, test, deploy and operate. Especially in design phase it makes sense to use the power of both tools. Therefore SAP Signavio reworked the integration into SAP Solution Manager 7.2 which will give customer opportunity to make use the best of both world.
