  4. 4. Application Life-Cycle ManagementThe Strategic Value With Application Life-Cycle Management, customers implement high-quality solutions faster and operate them at lower cost Accelerated Innovation Superior Quality Operation at lower cost•  Value discovery and realization •  of SAP solutions, customer •  Standardize, unify, and•  Innovation without upgrade enhancements and partner automate operations•  Near-zero downtime deployments •  Manage complexity •  in terms of functionality, •  Manage SLAs performance, availability and securityALM is best defined as “a holistic and integrated ITIL-based approach for application lifecyclemanagement (ALM) by providing processes, tools, services, and an organizational model to manage SAPand non-SAP applications throughout their entire lifecycle”. In short, ALM is a software lifecycleframework for our customers to accelerate innovation and operate their SAP solutions at lower costs andwith less risk.©  2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 4
