SAP Solution Manager
SAP’s support backbone is the central infrastructure located at SAP to provide technical support to customers. The support backbone consists of several different systems for different purposes – for example, it provides the SAP Support Portal infrastructure, the Maintenance Planner, SAP EarlyWatch Alert Reports, and many more.
SAP’s Support Backbone has been updated. The legacy infrastructure remains in place only to allow a safe transition for customers.
The clock is ticking: will you be ready?

Upgrade with intelligence. The hidden costs of delaying too long are not ones you want to calculate.
