USING STANDARDISATION AS A BASIS FOR OUTSOURCING
SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of programs in the SAP system. It acts like an operating system for R/3 and subsequent releases including S/4HANA. Each operating system provides an environment in which programs can run, such as MS Office on Microsoft Windows.
Of course, the SAP consultant remains in the foreground as a person and is the figurehead for our services. However, where it makes sense, they are supported by customized tools.
Change and release management
In every company with an SAP system, there is someone who is responsible for the SAP Basis. This person ensures the trouble-free operation of the SAP system. He or she accompanies maintenance work and intervenes in special situations, such as poor performance. Even for companies that hand over the operation of Basis to an external service provider, there are often still tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.
In the authorization environment, in addition to assigning authorizations to SAP users, there are a number of important SAP Basis settings that you should check regularly to ensure that your SAP system is fully protected, both internally and externally. For example, particularly in the context of an audit, it is important to ensure that changes to the SAP system always remain traceable. In this blog, I would like to show you how you can best implement this and what to look out for.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
The SAP Standard offers different approaches for gate protection.
Basis administrators handle routine maintenance, operations, and upgrades, and play an important role in planning and executing migrations and other large-scale projects.
