Q&A: You ask, we answer

Q: We will start in August our first SAP cloud project (besides SAP sf) starting with SAP IBP. Do we have advantages using SAP cloud ALM for it? If yes, should we start with SAP Cloud ALM upfront or after the IBP project?

A: SAP Cloud ALM does not support the implementation of SAP IBP yet. We currently support operations of SAP IBP. You can see the list of supported solutions here: https://help.sap.com/docs/CloudALM/08879d094f3b4de3ac67832f4a56a6de/3ebab44c25da4cc1997bad08cc00991c.html.
