SAP Basis is structured in the form of a three-layer model and consists of the following components:
The comprehensive analysis provides the pattern and roadmap for the next steps. This also includes the right sizing, the selection of the monitoring concept and the appropriate deployment model, i.e. on-premise, cloud or hybrid cloud. Only with this planning can you ultimately achieve the desired goal - with transparent costs.
PROJECT HISTORIES: THE SAP basis OF TOMORROW An entry in the Forum Infrastructure and Operations within the DSAGNet drew attention to the problem of the SAP basis as described above. This led to a lively discussion, which attracted a lot of interest from the members of the DSAM. Building on the interest and need for action of the member companies, a project was initiated by the DSAG as well as by the SAP, which should deal with the future of the SAP basis. Several companies were invited to participate and their willingness to participate actively was questioned in a DSAG survey. The first project meeting took place within the framework of the DSAG Annual Congress in Bremen in 2015. As a result, regular events took place at the SAP office in Freiberg am Neckar and St Leon-Rot, with the participation of up to 15 companies. In the project "the SAP basis of Tomorrow", current questions of the companies as well as the question of the SAP basis of the future were discussed and worked out with regard to the IT landscape, processes and organisational structure. A master's thesis was initiated to document and prepare the results as well as to examine the topic in scientific terms in parallel with the project. This was made at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt as part of the Master's programme in Information Systems with Prof. Dr. Karl Liebschnitel and submitted for evaluation at the end of March 2016.

This step is of fundamental importance for the SAP basis. It concerns both the inward-looking perception described in the marketing & self-understanding recommendation and the outward-looking perception in the form of a mission and vision.
The Expert Team Lead leads a group of specialists, e.g. a group of SMEs or a specific technical area such as a group of operators. For example, this role can lead and steer a virtual group of experts with the participation of other IT departments on the topic of print management. The role serves as the interface and contact of the SAP basis to other specialist areas such as memory management or operating systems. In cooperation with other IT departments, the Technical Team Lead leads expert groups. These expert groups are usually virtually organised and their existence limited in time. The role of the Technical Lead functions as (partial) project leader for topics and projects of particular importance to the SAP basis. He takes care of all the activities involved in project management and control.
