SAP Basis Management
The SAP basis requires a separation layer to upstream and downstream IT departments, which is clearly defined. In the direction of the infrastructure, for example, this can be the upper edge of the operating system. This distinction must also be drawn in the direction of application development. Here there are various services offered today by the SAP basis, which are more closely related to application, such as control of background processing, transport or also the automation of certain activities. In principle, it is necessary to examine which tasks can continue to be carried out in the SAP basis due to the requirements and which can be given in expert units.
INTRODUCTION A growing number of SAP-based departments are facing major changes and challenges within the SAP product portfolio as well as in their own task environment. These result from influences of digitalisation, digital transformation, new technologies such as cloud computing or big data, but also developments such as customer experience or the Internet of Things. In order to overcome the challenges and to transform the existing SAP basis, recommendations for action are grouped in seven thematic areas. These topics cover the areas of skills and roles (cloud and supplier management, strengthening of the technology architect, focus on project work), marketing and self-understanding (creation of a service catalogue, regular exchange with the CIO, renaming of the SAP basis), new technologies and innovation (test and innovation lab, proactive & regular training), organisation in change (development of the two subject areas close to structure and application-orientated , virtual teams of experts), standardisation and automation (automation of routine tasks, outtasking of rare tasks), "cloudability", outsourcing & outtasking (assessment of usefulness for the cloud, use of appropriate service forms) and IT roadmap (influence of own IT roadmap). By reflecting on the thematic areas, methods and possibilities for implementing the recommendations are presented.

SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
Only one transaction code can be entered here, otherwise a single role would always be searched, which includes all transactions searched for and is assigned to the respective user. However, since the transactions can also be assigned to the user via different roles, this would not be useful. If you use the above Input variants are also only considered transactions that have been maintained in the role menu. If it is not certain whether the transaction was entered in the menu or in the S_TCODE privilege object of the role, up to four transactions can also be checked by searching through the S_TCODE permission object. Important is the attention and appropriate use of the AND/OR relationship. After the query is executed, the roles that contain the requested transaction and are associated with the user are now displayed. If you use the search through the S_TCODE permission object, the following result page appears. When looking at the result, in addition to limiting the number of transactions that can be entered, another drawback of this variant becomes apparent: Although both associated roles are displayed, at first glance it is not possible to see which transaction is contained in which role. To do this, the roles would have to be considered individually. If more transactions with user assignment are to be identified at the same time and the role assignment is to be seen directly, the use of the transaction SE16N is recommended.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
Remove weak password hashes from the system: Only updating the profile parameter does not provide you with the necessary security.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
