Configuration as well as maintenance and backup
In order to drive innovation in the company, it is necessary to establish a team or a few experts whose recognised role is to promote research projects and PoCs, to continuously train themselves in this regard, to develop innovation proposals and to bring them into the committees. They are therefore largely excluded from operational operations. CONSTRUCTION OF A TEST LABORATORY In addition to resources, it is also necessary to create the framework conditions for the implementation of the research and pilot projects. To this end, it is recommended to set up a test laboratory with as few restrictions as possible on company standards. These are often so massive that a quick and effective implementation of pilot projects is severely hindered or completely prevented.
You would like to know more about what is happening on your SAP systems - then I recommend that you take a closer look at the Solution Manager Usage Procedure Logging (UPL) functionality. What code is often executed? Which database tables are accessed regularly? What unused developments exist? - The UPL provides answers to these questions. You can implement the functionality into your existing SAP landscape without additional licence costs and with moderate effort. What information does the UPL provide? Usage Procedure Logging is used to log and record user behaviour data roughly comparable to the ST03N workload statistics. UPL is able to record the call and execution of the following ABAP objects: Reports Functional Blocks Classes Methods Subroutines SQL Calls In addition, UPL is able to detect dynamic programme calls and generate transparency about the modifications used. All usage data is recorded in detail and automated and, if desired, made available centrally in the SAP Solution Manager. Benefits 1) Hardly measurable Performance Impact 2) Central collection of data of all systems in the SAP Solution Manager's BW 3) No complex setup 4) Once activated, the collector and extractor jobs run regularly and without further manual activities Possible usage scenario If you have Solution Manager 7.2 in use, you can use UPL within the framework of "Custom Code Lifecycle Management" (in German: management of customer developments). After one activation of the BW content and some standard jobs, you select one or more systems for which you want to activate UPL. If you already have the SP05 installed, there is a separate "Guided Procedure" for configuring the UPL in SOLMAN_SETUP.
In order to explain the relationship between TREX and SAP Solution Manager, I would like to ask you a question first. Can you remember when you last used the search help (F4) in SAP, what you were looking for and above all what the search string looked like? Now, the entitlement admin might have looked like this. Any role for a new key-user in the HCM area, but how exactly was that called? Would you Google the same way? - Not much. The Enterprise Search in Solution Manager 7.2 In the SAP Solution Manager, the SAP Enterprise Search provides a comprehensive full-text search. With only one keyword, you can search centrally for all types of documents in the ITSM and ChaRM, such as incidents or changes, via the Fiori Launchpad. If you have added attachments, they will also be searched for the keyword. At a technical level, a special BOL query object is passed to the Enterprise Search, which passes the HANA database and performs a search. What if you don't use the Solution Manager on SAP HANA? Enterprise Search with TREX 7.1 SAP offers the possibility to use Solution Manager 7.2 on another database (AnyDB), for example DB2 or Oracle. In order to use Enterprise Search (also embedded search) in this case, you need the TREX admin tool. This stands for Text Receival and Information Extraction, which basically describes the functionality of the software. The TREXEngine takes the search text in the form of the Query object and provides an intelligent search of keywords and long texts in previously classified documents. Installation and Usage Tips Run the TREX configuration after the basic configuration of the Solution Manager. In SOLMAN_SETUP you will find the Embedded Search scenario, which is the guide for the configuration. In the Process Management scenario, configure the embedded search using the description. Here the object connectors are created and the indexing jobs are started. Both are required to use the solution documentation in conjunction with other components. If you are installing UNIX, make sure that the shared libraries are up-to-date or that they are initially available.
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.
For more information about the lowest support package level for SAP ABA and SAP Basis to install an SAP Basis plug-in, see basis-plug-in → SAP Plug-In → SAP Basis Plug-In → Releases on the SAP Service Marketplace. For more information about the lowest support package level for the corresponding SAP R/3 Plug-In, see basis-plug- in → SAP Plug-In → SAP R/3 Plug-In → SAP R/3 Plug-In Releases on the SAP Service Marketplace. This level depends on the release of SAP R/3 or SAP R/3 Enterprise.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
