Configuration and operation of SAP Solution Manager
What are the requirements and benefits of a modern identity management system (IDM) in the GRContext and what should be taken into account in application processes? Modern companies need to be able to effectively control their employees' access and system permissions to ensure optimal corporate control and monitoring. This need can also be inferred from legal requirements. IDM is the user and permission management within an organisation. These systems are an essential part of the internal control system. This includes the continuous monitoring and allocation of access possibilities as well as the systematic securing of functional separation (SoD - Segregation of Duties) in the IT systems. This is primarily intended to better manage relevant business and financial risks and to prevent criminal acts. The management of user and permission structures must ensure that, when the roles and responsibilities change, the privileges of the employees concerned in the systems are adjusted. Failure to do so will result in a multi-department employee having extensive privileges that can be critical in combination. Trust is good, control is better In order to avoid employees being entitled beyond your area of competence, user data and permissions must be continuously adjusted to the current requirements. It therefore makes sense to regularly carry out a recertification process in which the role owner and the manager sign off in compliance with the four-eye principle that the employee is entitled to the current privileges or may have to be deprived of rights from previous activities. Provisioning as a central function of the IDM Provisioning components form a central function of IDM systems, which provide users with individual access rights for the required IT resources according to their task.
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.

Daily monitoring and maintenance of your systems. Together with you, we create a catalog of measures to ensure the optimal operation of your SAP landscape.
Today, "SAP Basis" often does not mean (only) the software architecture. Instead, the term is not infrequently a task description. This refers to the basic administration of the system: installation and configuration, resource management, maintenance and monitoring of a company's SAP setups. This can include user management, patch management and system monitoring. Backup policy, rights management and daily maintenance tasks are also responsibilities of Basis admins.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
Because hybrid landscapes are seen as the operating model of the future, it is necessary to develop monitoring strategies for this.
