Analysis and elimination of technical problems in the SAP Basis environment under the platforms ORACLE and Windows
Ten years ago, SAP HANA was little more than a promise that made SAP CEO Hasso Plattner's eyes light up. It's hard to imagine that all SAP customers will have completely replaced their Oracle and Microsoft databases in just ten years.
SAP Basis consultants are experts in consulting. The job of an SAP Basis consultant has many areas of responsibility such as:
Support Packages from the SAPNet - Load Web Frontend or Collection CDs
A role concept according to best practice protects you from potential attacks within your SAP landscape. However, to protect your system from unauthorized access via the network, the SAP Gateway must be configured correctly. It enables the use of external programs via interfaces or the call of ABAP programs and serves as a technical component of the application server, which manages the communication of all RFC-based functions.
SAP's client concept enables a SAP system to be split into several logical sub-systems - clients. These subsystems can be used independently and in isolation as separate systems. But how should non-client transactions be treated? How can you prevent one client from accessing the other and why should you want to prevent that? In this blog post, I will answer these questions and discuss some negative examples. Why is it important to consider independent transactions separately? Imagine that every one of your employees is allowed to create or change a client in the production system, or worse, both. Creating and modifying a client in the production system is authorised and documented - you wonder what could possibly go wrong? The risk in this case is a loss of integrity of system and data, loss of confidentiality: With each new client, Superuser SAP* lives up to its comprehensive, cross-client rights and the assigned standard password.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
In such a catalogue there is usually a set of apps and services which is relevant for a specific user group.
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.
Technical and organisational measures and processes must then ensure that the desired level of safety is implemented.
