Key Concept

SAP Solution Manager, enhancement package 1, offers new functionality, strengthens collaboration with SAP, and improves the organization and transparency of SAP service delivery. It was released with SAP Solution Manager 7.0 support package stack 18. It contains the new SAP Engagement and Service Delivery Work Center structuring collaboration by Issues, Top Issues, and management of tasks.

The SAP Engagement and Service Delivery Work Center in SAP Solution Manager, enhancement package 1, provides SAP and its customers with a central support platform that stores management information and technical support data. It gives customers the opportunity to use the key elements of SAP Engagement and Service Delivery to manage, track, and control SAP Services, Top Issues, Issues, tasks, and self-services.

All measures and communication can now be done in the business context of a customer’s application. Companies get a new perspective on formerly isolated and technical IT actions and services and can adjust them to fit their specific business needs.
