What will be the SAP Basis trends in the next few years?
For existing solutions, it is necessary to assess to what extent the solution is customised. A modification is the more serious the more time-consuming the maintenance is, including testing, e.g. in the case of upgrades. The fewer customer specifications are available, the more suitable a system or application is for external operation by a service form to be chosen.
Every SAP Basis system must be controlled and managed by an administrator. The person responsible ensures smooth operation of the system. This can be an internal administrator, or can be handed over to external service providers.
Error analysis and correction in the databases and the SAP system
Whenever you find a red traffic light on the Roles tab in the user master in SU01 - or a yellow traffic light on the Users tab in PFCG, you can usually solve the problem with a simple user synchronization. The fact that such a user adjustment is necessary can have several reasons. Among others: after a role transport to / when assigning users to roles via PFCG after restricting the validity of roles to users when roles are assigned indirectly via organizational management. Users usually notice the problem of a user comparison that has not been carried out quite quickly: Authorizations are missing, although at first glance they are available in the assigned authorization roles. This is because a user is assigned the correct authorization role - but the profile associated with the role is not up to date.
Many companies that use or would like to use an SAP Basis system seek advice from external service providers or completely outsource the administration of the system. SAP Basis Consulting is a technical consulting service that covers many tasks and sub-areas related to SAP Basis. Providers include BasisTeam IT Service & Consulting AG, Phoron, Mindsquare and many others.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of the SAP Basis system and thus for R/3 and SAP ERP, for example.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
All methods combined can provide even greater safety.
