Implementation of the configuration in the system
Introduction & Best Practices
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.
The core of SAP Basis is the application layer with one or more application servers and a message server. The message server is used for communication between the application servers and transmits jobs between them. The application layer communicates with the database layer on the one hand and the presentation layer on the other. The applications on the application server request the required data from the database, process it and prepare it for the user, who displays it in his Graphical User Interface (GUI) via the presentation layer. Conversely, the application server passes information that the user enters via the GUI on to the database.
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.
SAP Basis consulting can start with general consulting on SAP deployment and installation and configuration. In addition, the SAP consulting can transition to an external takeover of updates and upgrades of SAP components or even the complete takeover of the administration of the SAP system.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
In order to ensure the stability of the systems and to reduce the risk through proprietary developments, release and patch management must be implemented.
The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.
