A new SAP system is created...
Migration of SAP OS systems (between different operating systems)
Instead of letting the power consumer determine each parameter individually, the SAP basis can now create meaningful bundles, such as the power server with a lot of processor power, memory and disk space, and the light server in a simpler setup. Each bundle has its own price, which requires preparation and consideration. The principle of consistently aligning IT services with repeatable standards is thus directly linked to the standardisation of processes and technical specifications. Standardised products can only be offered if process processes are standardised. Likewise, these can only be offered as simple and comprehensible product bundles if technical standards are established.
The SAP basis is often perceived as a brake within projects or when introducing new technologies. This is partly due to the late consultation of the SAP basis on the issues of technical feasibility as well as the integration of new technologies and applications into the existing system landscape. By implementing the recommendations, the SAP basis is repositioning itself in parts within the IT organisation. The SAP basis has a clearly defined self-understanding (inward-looking perception) as well as a clear positioning and a defined task area within the IT organisation (outward-facing perception), as shown in Figure 5. By integrating the SAP basis into the development of the IT strategy, the digitisation strategy and a clear communication with the CIO, the SAP basis has the opportunity to deal with technologies and topics at an early stage. As a result, the SAP basis is prepared for requests from business units or other IT departments and has the opportunity to approach them proactively. The SAP basis is supported by an IT service and IT product catalogue, which describes the scope of the SAP basis. For internal communication and communication with external service providers, as well as other suppliers, outsourcing partners or outsourcing partners and cloud service providers, there are up-to-date and meaningful documentation and process descriptions. For the control, measurement and monitoring of external partners, Service Level Agreements and meaningful key figures are also available.
SCOT SAPconnect - Administration
SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of programs in the SAP system. It acts like an operating system for R/3 and subsequent releases including S/4HANA. Every operating system provides an environment in which programs can run, such as MS Office on Microsoft Windows. In the same way, the SAP Basis system with the NetWeaver and HANA platforms provides an environment in which SAP programs can run. In this context, the NetWeaver platform itself relies on server operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
Job scheduling: your system needs to run various automatic background jobs that consume resources. Your administrator must carefully schedule these tasks when user demand is low so they don't impact performance.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
Parameters include processor count, memory, disk space, operating system, and run-time environment.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.
The person responsible for SAP Basis needed to have not only knowledge related to SAP systems, but also broad skills about operating systems (Windows and Linux), databases (e.g. Oracle, MaxDB, HANA Database) and network services.
