SAP Basis as a job title
Migration of SAP DB systems (between different databases)
The main benefit of the implementation of the above recommendations lies in the creation and documentation of the innovative power of the SAP basis. Through consistent research and testing, the SAP basis is enabled to assume its role as an innovation driver. It also creates an attractive and exciting working environment for employees. By being involved in projects in a timely manner, project success will be promoted and will contribute to company success in the medium and long term. One possible consequence of the constant overuse of the employees is the reorientation of the employees and the associated loss of knowledge. This can also lead to the complete basic activity being carried out by external partners, to which a dependency relationship then arises.
The basic SAP Basis operation includes the operational readiness of the SAP system, management of system changeability, configuration and administration of system profiles, analysis of system failures, operation and monitoring of technical interfaces, scheduling and monitoring of SAP standard jobs, and much more. The optional services as an extension include activities whose implementation and frequency depends on the existing system environment and which can be optionally booked (client copies, implementation of client transports and homogeneous/heterogeneous system copies, etc.). These include performing release upgrades, installing enhancement packages, adapting new printer types, device drivers or character sets, and much more.
Migration to the Cloud Platforms
The past ten years have primarily revolutionized the infrastructure and database layer. The fascinating thing is that there have been hardly any changes to the SAP installation program SAPinst during this time.
Another major topic is the migration of SAP systems, both locally from one data center to another and from one operating system to another or from one database type to another. As a rule, the SWPM tool is used here again.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
When you develop these applications, you should think about securing them early.
If you already have the SP05 installed, there is a separate "Guided Procedure" for configuring the UPL in SOLMAN_SETUP.
