EarlyWatch Alerts are a key piece of functionality for SAP Solution Manager users. Providing notifications about issues that could become more problematic if not addressed, EarlyWatch Alerts provide some risk management and piece of mind.
Of course, as with any alert, it can become overkill. Think of your Google Alerts -- if you sign up for a Google Alert for "SAP," not only do you get duplicate news releases and blog posts, along with plenty of information you might not care about, you also get notifications about techniques for making maple syrup from sap experts -- clearly not something you're interested in.
EarlyWatch Alerts can function in the same way, resulting in countless emails. You want to know about critical problems -- but only in the systems for which you have access, or for which you are responsible.
