Support Packages from SAPNet - Web Frontend or Collection CDs are available in a compressed format. Note that you must unpack the support packages before processing. Download the support packages from the SAPNet - Web Frontend or mount the appropriate CD. Log in with the following user: Operating system users UNIX
adm AS/400 OFR Windows NT adm Go to the following subdirectory in your system: Operating system UNIX and AS/400 usr/sap/trans/tmp Windows NT :\usr\sap\TRANS\TMP Unzip the archive containing the support packages with the following command: Operating system command UNIX CAR -xvf / / / _CAR AS/400 CAR '-xvf /QOPT/ / / _CAR' Windows NT CAR -xvf :\ \ CHIVE>.CAR Put the unpacked support packages in the EPS inbox of your transport directory: Operating system EPS-Inbox of the transport directory UNIX /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in AS/400 /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in Windows NT :\usr\sap\trans\EPS\in Now bring the support packages into your system with Support Package Upload. You will see a list of uploaded support packages that are now known with all their attributes in the SAP system and can be handled in the right way by the SAP Patch Manager.

The decision to outsource a task or service should be taken not only in terms of cost, but also by assessing the competitive differentiation and strategic importance. Characteristics for describing the costs are the specificity of the task and the embossing by unit cost degression, i.e. decreasing costs with increasing number of tasks or performance. Of strategic importance are, in particular, those tasks and services which are difficult to imitate by competing companies. Figure 4 compares the strategic importance and cost advantages in order to arrive at fundamentally valid statements regarding the usefulness of outsourcing for certain IT tasks and services. In addition to this, as already discussed by Recommendation [A2], it is then worthwhile to establish a catalogue of criteria for evaluating and looking in detail at certain characteristics of the application or services. An exemplary catalogue of criteria can be found in chapter 9.6 of the Master thesis. Figure 4: IT Outsourcing Decision Matrix THE DECISION TO OUTSOURCE A TASK OR PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE MADE NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF COSTS BUT ALSO BY ASSESSING COMPETITION DIFFERENTIATION AND STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE.

EDI enables companies to exchange business data such as purchase orders or invoices electronically. This data exchange is known as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). What steps are needed to exchange data between two systems? In this post, I'd like to show you how to configure your SAP system so that an order, after it has been released, is sent electronically to your supplier. Data exchange between two systems requires a valid RFC connection to the receiver system and a transactional RFC IDoc port.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
Many companies are struggling with the introduction and use of secinfo and reginfo files to secure SAP RFC gateways. We have developed a generator that supports the creation of the files. This blog post lists two SAP best practices for creating the secinfo and reginfo files to enhance the security of your SAP gateway and how the generator helps you do this. secinfo and reginfo Request generator Option 1: Restrictive procedure In the case of the restrictive solution approach, only in-system programmes are allowed. Therefore, external programmes cannot be used. However, since this is desired, the access control lists must be gradually expanded to include each programme required. Although this procedure is very restrictive, which speaks for safety, it has the very great disadvantage that, in the creation phase, links which are actually desired are always blocked. In addition, the permanent manual activation of individual connections represents a continuous effort. For large system landscapes, this procedure is very complex. Option 2: Logging-based approach An alternative to the restrictive procedure is the logging-based approach. To do this, all connections must be allowed first by the secinfo file containing the content USER=* HOST=* TP=* and the reginfo file contains the content TP=*. During the activation of all connections, a recording of all external programme calls and system registrations is made with the gateway logging. The generated log files can then be evaluated and the access control lists created. However, there is also a great deal of work involved here. Especially with large system landscapes, many external programmes are registered and executed, which can result in very large log files. Revising them and creating access control lists can be an unmanageable task. However, this process does not block any intentional connections during the compilation phase, which ensures the system will run non-disruptively.

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.
Since roles are classified differently in each company, you are completely free to decide which roles you want to consider critical.
