So-called Access Control Lists (ACL) offer a good possibility to secure your gateway in order to exclude unwanted external accesses to the database of the application server. With the help of the ACL files reginfo and secinfo an access control can be implemented, in which allowed as well as forbidden communication partners can be defined. The reginfo file controls the registration of external programs on the gateway, which means that rules can be defined that allow or prohibit programs. With the help of the file secinfo you can define which users are allowed to start an external program. To be able to use these files, you must set the parameters gw/reg_info and gw/sec_info (transaction RZ11). For more information, refer to SAP Note 1408081.
The consistent implementation of the role concept enables a manageable complexity of the tasks per employee. At the same time, through the respective SMEs, the concept creates expertise in specific topics and enables communication on an equal footing with upstream or downstream IT departments as well as with external service providers. The establishment of technology architects also ensures that the overall picture is not left out of sight in the context of the SAP product portfolio. Deficits can also be addressed on issues such as policies and security. Overall, the role concept provides guidance for the employees and their career planning as well as guidance regarding the range of tasks and contacts for IT departments and business areas.
Update of the SAP system to newer versions
Before SAP HANA was released, there was no SAP database - you had to install SAP ERP (or the application you were using) on a third-party database, such as Oracle or SQL Server. SAP developed the HANA database to fully leverage the power of SAP's next-generation S/4 software.
Different events can be used to change to the new or changed role concept. Among other things, the introduction of new technologies can be used to establish, for example, the characteristics of the SME or technology architect. But also fluctuation or new hires are suitable for the conversion and establishment of the new roles. In principle, it is recommended that the new rollers be introduced and implemented successively parallel to the existing operating model.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Make sure that there is enough space, especially in the subdirectories trans/EPS/in and trans/data.
The higher the degree of standardisation of operational and maintenance tasks, the more effective the technical operation and maintenance can be.
