Decommissioning/uninstallation of SAP systems and their databases
Security management, system audits, hardening and monitoring
The lifecycle of an SAP system begins with the installation of the database platform. This is installed by an SAP Basis administrator and can consist of one of the following databases: HANA, Sybase, DB2, Oracle, MSSQL and MaxDB.
In practice, it is quite possible that the target specifications defined in the security concept do not match the current actual status. Therefore, especially with regard to SAP security, it must always be checked whether the necessary SAP basic settings also correspond to the minimum level. Although a manual check is possible, it is very time-consuming because the necessary regularizations have to be read, interpreted and technically implemented. The Security Architect - part of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) software solution developed by Xiting - offers you the possibility to precisely examine the current status of the SAP Basis settings with the help of the integrated check mode, whereby it is also possible to check several systems via RFC, starting from a central system. The scope of the check of system settings and system security includes not only the SAP Basis settings presented here, but also other SAP Basis settings. The scope of the check mode can be extended by self-defined check IDs.

In many companies, the SAP system is the linchpin of everyday business. To ensure that the system is available at all times, an SAP Basis team ensures its smooth operation.
But when it comes to the intricacies of large SAP environments, Ansible quickly reaches its limits. If you want to use Ansible to implement simple automations - starting and stopping SAP environments, for example - you have to put up with a lot of manual effort and complicated scripts.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.
A positive aspect of standardisation and automation is the increase in the quality of tasks, since manual errors can be almost excluded.
