SAP Solution Manager 7.1 represents one of the biggest upgrades to Solution Manager since its inception. With it came many new features, not the least of which are those that help you monitor and take advantage of changes in your projects and solutions throughout the life of your SAP solution. Explore the new features for helping you share changes across projects and solutions more easily.
Key Concept
With wider acceptance of the use of global templates and the increasing ability to manage and track localizations, taking advantage of process improvements regardless of their source becomes critical. SAP Solution Manager 7.1 has greatly improved the compare and adjust capabilities in both depth and breadth.

If you’ve taken the plunge (or are planning to upgrade) to Solution Manager 7.1, then you need to know how to manage your global templates, implementations, and solutions in 7.1.

I’ll explore how Solution Manager 7.1 has enhanced the transaction SA_PROJECT_UPGRADE and compare and adjust capabilities. The focus of the article is on those features that support the roll-in of process enhancements made in a solution during ongoing support, or in implementations in which enhancements made during localization are advantageous to other groups in the enterprise.
