The SAP Patch Manager (SPAM) is the online correction support (OCS) customer site. The SPAM transaction gives you the ability to easily and efficiently import support packages provided by SAP into your system. Depending on the system used or the configuration of your system, you must insert different types of Support Packages [page 8]. You will receive support packages in SAPNet - Web Frontend, in SAPNet - R/3 Frontend or on Collection CDs. Since SPAM runs within the SAP system, you do not need to know the operating system to handle the transaction. In the language usage of SAP, the term patch has been replaced by the term support package. Note that you can only work with this transaction in SAP GUI for Java and SAP GUI for Windows.
SAP lockout issues: Call the SM12 transaction and make sure that there are no programmes named RDDIMPDP. For more information, see Note 11677. ADDON_CONFLICTS_? This step checks to see if there are conflicts between objects in the queue and add-ons installed. If there are such conflicts, SPAM will cancel and prompt you to play the appropriate Conflict Resolution Transports (CRTs).

Also in the course of a conversion to S/4HANA, the data is migrated from the original database type to an SAP HANA database. This is also done with the tool "SUM" (Software Update Manager) via the so-called "DMO" (Database Migration Option).
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
Since they often also work in international companies, it is an advantage if they have a very good command of written and spoken English.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
