It stands for SAP’s commitment to provide support for all type of SAP server technologies based on ABAP, Java, .net and C as well as SAP client technologies such as Browser, SAPGUI or Office. Holistic support procedures and tools provide the necessary insight into workload, exception and change analysis of all SAP technologies and applications. End-to-End Trace records the activity of a single user browser to disk. Furthermore, the diagnostic hubs of SAP Solution Manager for workload, exceptions, logs, traces, changes and client diagnostics are designed in an open manner so that 3rd parties for which a customer asks SAP to take over support responsibility can be included in Diagnostics
