Introduction & Best Practices
RESOLUTION OF SILO EDUCATION AND/OR SEPARATION OF SAP AND NON-SAP SPLITS
We are transparent and open. It is not part of our philosophy to make ourselves irreplaceable with you. In our eyes, this is a matter of course for a long-term partnership.
The application layer is the core of an R/3 SAP Basis system. This layer communicates in both directions, to the presentation layer and to the database layer. The application programs on the application servers request the required data from the database layer, process it, prepare it for the user and pass it on to the presentation layer. Data that the user enters in the SAP GUI is passed on to the database via the application servers.
Support of SAP modules
Instead of data maintenance and application development, SAP Basis is more about providing and maintaining the software environment on which the data resides and is processed. Therefore, SAP Basis is an important core of any SAP infrastructure and is required in both previous versions such as R/3, as well as current versions such as S/4HANA 2021.
Within this step, a pricing strategy is chosen. The strategy chosen must be based on the value for money. The selection shall also be justified. The price of the service will continue to be determined, as will formal decisions on clearing models and discounts. This step is less important for the SAP basis. While it is necessary to set a price for the IT products to be defined in terms of appreciation and offsetting, it does not require an elaborate pricing system. STEP 8: MARKET COMMUNICATION The step of market communication describes the way in which the respective service is advertised and how it is to be communicated with customers in this regard. It's about the communication tools that are planned, which describe the place of communication, the communication tools that describe what to advertise, and the content. These are usually derived from the target group to be applied for. For the SAP basis, the content is an essential feature of the market communication. That is, depending on the target group, information must be created and communicated. STEP 9: INTERNAL COMMUNICATION Internal communication describes how the above-mentioned aspects can also be successfully communicated internally, i.e. in the direction of one's employees.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Due to the large number of different constellations of database and SAP software, the job of an SAP Basis administrator is very diverse.
To do this, the roles would have to be considered individually.
