Technical and non-technical skills
There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: TP_INTERFACE_FAILURE: Unable to call tp interface. TP_FAILURE: The tp programme could not be run. For more information, see the SLOG or ALOG log file. COMMAND_FILE_IMPORT_FAILURE: Unable to import the Object List to one or more Support Packages. The protocol of the Commandfile import contains the cause of the error. OBJECTS_LOCKED_?

The decision to outsource a task or service should be taken not only in terms of cost, but also by assessing the competitive differentiation and strategic importance. Characteristics for describing the costs are the specificity of the task and the embossing by unit cost degression, i.e. decreasing costs with increasing number of tasks or performance. Of strategic importance are, in particular, those tasks and services which are difficult to imitate by competing companies. Figure 4 compares the strategic importance and cost advantages in order to arrive at fundamentally valid statements regarding the usefulness of outsourcing for certain IT tasks and services. In addition to this, as already discussed by Recommendation [A2], it is then worthwhile to establish a catalogue of criteria for evaluating and looking in detail at certain characteristics of the application or services. An exemplary catalogue of criteria can be found in chapter 9.6 of the Master thesis. Figure 4: IT Outsourcing Decision Matrix THE DECISION TO OUTSOURCE A TASK OR PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE MADE NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF COSTS BUT ALSO BY ASSESSING COMPETITION DIFFERENTIATION AND STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE.
SAP Basis Introduction and R3 Architecture Overview (in English)
The basic operation of SAP Basis includes the operational readiness of the SAP system, management of system changeability, configuration and administration of system profiles, analysis of system failures, operation and monitoring of technical interfaces, scheduling and monitoring of SAP standard jobs, and much more. The optional services as an extension include activities whose execution and frequency depends on the existing system environment and which can be optionally booked (client copies, execution of client transports and homogeneous/heterogeneous system copies, etc.). These include performing release upgrades, installing enhancement packages, adapting new printer types, device drivers or character sets, and much more.
It is of great importance to keep the knowledge of SAP Basis experts in the company transparent. One possibility is of course to "look over the shoulder" or to ask the expert directly. However, this is very time-consuming and puts a strain on the expert himself.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
Due to the long history, the increased availability requirements often do not match the actual protection measures, so that security risks often arise at this point.
All stories!? "Great stories!" think now.
