Support for adjustments and changes to the systems
SAP Basis consists of three layers: a database layer, an application layer and a presentation layer. The database layer manages all the data of the SAP system in a database located on the database server and administered by a database management system (DBMS). The database supplies the connected SAP applications with the required data, data tables or system control tables. It also receives and stores new information generated by the user.
Customers with such a case regularly contact us. Creating a Permission Concept from the ground up is often a time-consuming task. Furthermore, the know-how, which aspects should be dealt with in an authorisation concept and how the corresponding processes can look practical and at the same time audit-proof is often lacking. Our solution: tool-based generation of an individual, written authorisation concept In this situation, we have recommended to our customers the tool-based generation of a written authorisation concept directly from the SAP system. We use the XAMS Security Architect tool, with which we have had good experiences. This includes a template for a revision-proof and comprehensible, written authorisation concept. It includes established best practices for role and entitlement management. The template covers all relevant areas in a permission concept. The included text of the authorisation concept is completely customisable, so that the concept can be tailored to your situation without creating a permission concept from scratch. Dynamically update the written authorisation concept One of the biggest challenges after the development of an authorisation concept is to keep it up to date in the long term and to measure the sustainable implementation in the system. This is achieved by integrating live data such as configuration settings and defined rules directly from the connected system. For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept. The following screenshot shows an example of what the appearance in the concept document might look like. Automatically check and monitor compliance with the concept To check compliance with the concept, the XAMS Security Architect includes extensive inspection tools. These cover the rules formulated in the concept and are suitable for measuring the extent to which the reality in the system meets the requirements formulated in the concept.

As we know, BASIS is a set of tools. This tool has the following different functionalities.
The results of the tests can be documented so that the development can be considered over a period of time. This way, you will be aware of the revision and of the relevant issues before the examination.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
The conscious processing and consideration of error situations in job chains - also at step level - can help to reduce manual effort.
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.
The SAP Basis & Technology department deals intensively with SAP technologies and their application.
