These are 10 technology trends every SAP Basis consultant needs to know about
Back up and restore data
In order for the stored business logic of an application to be executed correctly, the executing user must also have the necessary permission objects in the flow logic of the OData services in his role. If Authority Checks are performed here, e.g. to query or change data on the backend server, the corresponding role must be authorised. These permissions are expressed in a role by permission objects, as in any ABAP report. If you follow these steps, your Launchpad users should have the Fiori permissions necessary to launch the launchpad, view all relevant tiles, and run the specific apps with their business logic.
Hybrid clouds have long been the norm, even if this development has come about rather by accident. Most companies have chosen different cloud software offerings and integrated them accordingly, be it Workday for HCM, SalesForce for CRM, Marketo for marketing automation, Coupa for SRM or Vendavo for pricing. Many have also chosen SAP variants of these solutions with SuccessFactors, Cloud for Customer, Marketing Cloud, Ariba and CPQ.
USE OF SECURE NETWORK COMMUNICATION
The presentation layer is used to visualize the applications and data for the user. The presentation is done with the help of a graphical user interface (GUI). Furthermore, the presentation view consists of several modules, which are also summarized as SAP GUI. SAP Fiori is the presentation layer of the next generation and is therefore particularly user-friendly.
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.
Instead of letting the power consumer determine each parameter individually, the SAP basis can now create meaningful bundles, such as the power server with a lot of processor power, memory and disk space, and the light server in a simpler setup. Each bundle has its own price, which requires preparation and consideration. The principle of consistently aligning IT services with repeatable standards is thus directly linked to the standardisation of processes and technical specifications. Standardised products can only be offered if process processes are standardised. Likewise, these can only be offered as simple and comprehensible product bundles if technical standards are established.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
Therefore, the customising/workbench developments must be transported to the appropriate system.
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.
However, especially with large SAP landscapes, there are strict regulations regarding the permissions of technical RFC users.
