System Operation & Availability
Transaction code description
The integration of the SAP basis enables solutions to be introduced faster and better integrated into the existing system landscape. This is partly because the solutions are already known in advance and the necessary knowledge exists or is already planned. This will make it easier to implement the roadmap. It should also be noted that a clear strategy on digitisation and also on cloud products in general, as well as their possible uses, sets out a framework for action that all parties can follow. The participants thus know where the company wants to develop or orientate itself, what is possible and what is not possible or permitted. Thus, both companies and the parties have a valid point of reference at all times. This also leads to an increased acceptance within the SAP basis and a more practical implementation for the SAP basis, as the mentioned expertise is already present in the strategy. As a result, this makes it easier and cheaper to ensure operation in a manageable system landscape.
Therefore, there can also be critical permissions, profiles, and roles that do not fit in the naming scheme defined by SAP. Manual identification of critical SAP permissions is difficult overall. However, tools are available that automatically check for critical permissions. In this case, the critical SAP permissions are usually predefined by special verification software. If the critical permissions, profiles, and roles are identified, they should be adjusted according to the permission planning. The system will then be checked to see if the desired system behaviour has been achieved or if malfunctions occur. This adjustment process may be complex in the event of major changes and should not be carried out on the production system.
In the context of the SAP basis, the deployment of an SAP application server for any SAP system can be used as an example. Parameters include processor count, memory, disk space, operating system, and run-time environment.
Each SAP Basis system must be controlled and managed by an administrator. This person is responsible for the smooth operation of the system. This can be an internal administrator or it can be handed over to external service providers.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
This flows into our consulting as a further plus point and creates not only smooth functionality but also cost efficiency of your individual system landscape.
Another task of this position is also to follow new market trends and propose compliant solutions with them.
