Support for Basis Projects
The SAP Identity Management System (IdM) enables centralised user and permission management in a heterogeneous system landscape. By using an IdMSsystem, manual processes can be replaced by automated workflows that are mapped and administered centrally. Examples of scenarios: 1) User and Authorisation Management 2) ESS/MSS for the management of personnel data 3) Audit and monitoring for the verification of compliance with legal regulations What should be taken into account, however, if you want to introduce an Identity Management System? In this contribution, I would like to highlight fundamental points that need to be clarified before the introduction.
THE SAP basis AS AN OPPORTUNITY ALMOST EVERY INNOVATION IN THE COMPANY HAS A TECHNICAL FOOTPRINT IN THE BACKEND, WHICH MOSTLY REPRESENTS AN SAP SYSTEM. HERE, THE SAP basis CAN HELP CREATE AN ADDED VALUE FOR THE COMPANY. EARLY INVOLVEMENT IN THE PROJECT IS ESSENTIAL.

In general, SAP operations and all associated activities need to be further professionalised. This includes the documentation of key and mission critical processes and their verification for timeliness and validity. It is also necessary to record and describe the performance of the base by IT service management, as well as techniques such as a RACI matrix to identify and document the responsibilities of the SAP basis.
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.
However, the tasks also include strategic and planning aspects. For example, administrators define requirements and standards, select and control upgrades or enhancements, implement monitoring processes, and take care of necessary backups and emergency management.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
It provides the necessary data to all other applications.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
This requires careful planning and anticipation of long-term trends.
