Recently, Matthias Haendly described in IT Management by SAP the evolution of the well-known Application Lifecycle Management into the more holistic concept of IT Management, which goes beyond change management, service management, testing and IT operations. To contribute to your company's or organization's success, you need to run your IT like a business, which means maximizing its responsiveness and driving value and innovation while at the same time controlling and optimizing cost and ensuring business continuity. This includes for instance seamless performance monitoring of business-critical IT applications and processes, as well as process automation, project planning and resource allocation, to name just a few. Together with its partner ecosystem, SAP provides a powerful suite of solutions, services and best practices to accomplish these needs end-to-end.
This is why we recently enhanced the renowned ALM Quarterly Newsletter and transformed it into the IT Management Newsletter. The first edition was issued end of November 2011, and since then, the subscription numbers are steadily growing. The second edition is coming out very soon, more precisely on 6 March.
