SAP Solution Manager 7.2
SAP Solution Manager helps you maintain all enterprise applications – even non-SAP software – while supporting business innovation. Ultimately, you can shorten time to value for new projects, control costs, and optimize compliance.
SAP HANA as a database of choice in the SAP landscape is seen by many as inevitable. For the early adopters, the impact has been experienced, whether good or bad is not the point. SAP HANA has matured and it will become a standard for the SAP customer base. How long this will take is always open for debate.
In order to accelerate the process, SAP has made a very generous decision to allow all Enterprise customers to implement their SSM 7.2 on a HANA platform, without any additional HANA licence or maintenance fees, irrespective of the current database being used. SSM 7.2 customers are not forced to use HANA, however, the option is available.
SAP S4HANA and SAP HANA
SAP HANA has become the de facto standard for in-memory databases.
From an SAP Solution Manager perspective, this means that the new SAP Solution Manager release needs to provide support for managing SAP HANA during its complete lifecycle. In addition, customers demanded that SAP Solution Manager itself needs to be made available on SAP HANA. Here, the expectation is that SAP HANA will improve the performance of SAP Solution Manager.
Based on customer feedback, SAP decided to completely overhaul the implementation part of SAP Solution Manager. The goal of this endeavor was to provide a comprehensive design and build environment that allows customers to efficiently implement SAP’s new ERP flagship solution: SAP S/4HANA.

Deploying SSM on HANA gives customers several benefits, including the chance to become familiar with HANA in the SSM landscape before committing it to the rest of the SAP landscape and the subsequent licensing commitments. The HANA based SSM provides very fast text search times across the ITSM tickets and the document repository. And finally, for SAP HANA only landscape, SSM can now be fully aligned to the HANA strategy.
