Implement S/4 HANA using Solution Manager 7.2 in the Dimension Data Cloud Services for SAP® Software Platform and manage your digital strategy
Article written by Vaughn Booyens, SS4S
With the eagerly anticipated release of Solution Manager 7.2 only a few months away in Quarter 3 of 2016, the wait is almost over. Turnout at the April Solution Manager AFSUG Group in South AFRICA and the presentations at SAPPHIRE last week indicated that the hype over the imminent release is tangible – so says Vaughn Booyens, Solution Manager SME for Britehouse. Being an early adopter of Solution Manager 7.2, Britehouse has successfully deployed Solution Manager 7.2 internally onto the Britehouse certified Dimension Data Cloud Services for SAP® Software Platform environment, where the use of Solution Manager forms an integral part of the Dimension Data Cloud Services Software Platform.
Moving forward Solution Manager 7.2 will be a critical component in deploying S4 HANA. Solution Manager will maximise the value of Support Engagement as 7.2 is designed for implementing the SAP S4 HANA suite and this will deliver the best support during the complete value lifecycle.
As trusted advisors to some of the country's largest and most experienced SAP Solution Manager customers, Britehouse recommends the preparation of a roadmap with the skilled Solution Manager Team to provide you with your personalized roadmap or upgrade path on Solution Manager over the next 12 months.
Furthermore, Solution Manager 7.2 provides you with unprecedented transparency into the readiness of your new digital solution. Britehouse is an early adopter of the new Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager, which manages requirements and software development in large, agile and innovative projects based on the SAP S4 HANA suite.
Britehouse provides a host of Solution Manager optimization services to customers in conjunction with SAP. The traditional approach of implementing time consuming Solution Manager projects has become outdated. Britehouse is now focused on delivering real business value and return on investment through the use of Solution Manager 7.2. At Britehouse we pride ourselves on the principle that our post-project work incorporates the management of your SAP system with an integrated/shared COE model through our main COE and BCC (Business Control Centre) in Pretoria.
Britehouse's main aim through the use of Solution Manager 7.2 is to improve your end-to-end business processes, achieve simplification in your environment, improve SAP system performance, increase user productivity through the use of Fiori front ends and reduce complexity in transactions. In order for any business to see real ROI on their SAP system, the transition from Projects to Support is one of the key aspects for success. Through the use of Solution Manager 7.2 and the new Solution documentation functionality of business processes we ensure a continuous single source of truth which will enable defect tracking, Change Request Management and automated testing seamlessly.
