Monitoring of the SAP system landscape through regular system checks according to defined schedules and workflows
What does an SAP administrator need to be able to do?
The integration of the SAP basis enables solutions to be introduced faster and better integrated into the existing system landscape. This is partly because the solutions are already known in advance and the necessary knowledge exists or is already planned. This will make it easier to implement the roadmap. It should also be noted that a clear strategy on digitisation and also on cloud products in general, as well as their possible uses, sets out a framework for action that all parties can follow. The participants thus know where the company wants to develop or orientate itself, what is possible and what is not possible or permitted. Thus, both companies and the parties have a valid point of reference at all times. This also leads to an increased acceptance within the SAP basis and a more practical implementation for the SAP basis, as the mentioned expertise is already present in the strategy. As a result, this makes it easier and cheaper to ensure operation in a manageable system landscape.
Critical business processes require a secure, efficient and stable operation of an SAP system landscape. High demands on the management as well as the operation of the underlying SAP NetWeaver platform require competent support in all tasks of planning, support and updating of the SAP Basis. The increase in installed components as well as systems integrated via interfaces expands these needs. Only with professional care and maintenance of its components can SAP NetWeaver bring its advantages as an integrative platform to bear.
Definition of general system parameters
Over time, the tasks associated with the base became more complex and time-consuming, so that only the consultants could handle them. A need arose to hire a person to deal only with Basis matters.
In the SAP Basis area, it is necessary to make temporary changes to the security settings of clients and systems in the course of system updates. You can use the system changeability variable to specify whether changeability of cross-client data, such as programs or menus, and cross-client customizing is allowed.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
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.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
