Target customers of SAP Cloud ALM are cloud-only, cloud first, and cloud-centric customers of SAP. They typically have no SAP Solution Manager and no (or very little) SAP applications deployed on premise. All other SAP customers may use it as well if they have a valid SAP Enterprise Support maintenance agreement. Even though SAP Cloud ALM starts with the focus on SaaS offerings of SAP, it will also cover on-premise applications in the future. This is the foundation for proper ALM of hybrid solutions.
