System Landscape Directory (SLD)

The System Landscape Directory (SLD) of SAP NetWeaver is the central source of system landscape information relevant for the management of your software life-cycle. By providing a directory comprising information about all installable software available from SAP and automatically updated data about systems already installed in a landscape, you get the foundation for tool support to plan software life-cycle tasks in your system landscape.

For general information about tools used for landscape management, see Landscape Management Tools and Landscape Descriptions.
