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.

Will Blockchain's Economy and Administration Revolutionise? What is a blockchain? A blockchain is a complete and unchanging transaction history of all transactions of a decentralised community that everyone who is part of it agrees to. The word blockchain first fell in connection with Bitcoin as a decentralised network for payments in the digital currency of the same name. The blockchain describes an underlying technology in which all transactions are publicly and unchangeably recorded. This transaction history is updated periodically. Each participant in the decentralised community accepts it as a reality, stores it on their computer, and can thus ensure at any time that no one can duplicate expenditure, as this would lead to a conflict in the transaction history elsewhere. A peculiarity of blockchain technology is that it has solved the "Double Spending Problem". Double-spending means something that can be doubled, and by 2008, only one central institution was considered to be sustainable. Double Spending can best be understood using the example of an image on a mobile phone. When I upload it to Facebook, I made a copy of it and I can upload it to Instagram, for example. So I used my picture "double". This effect made it impossible to establish a trustworthy, decentralised digital currency by 2008.
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.
As an SAP Basis administrator, you are faced with the challenge of balancing acute daily business and recurring routine tasks. As the complexity of the systems and the interdependencies tend to increase, the challenges are great and the requirements are growing. Daily and at the same time business-critical routine tasks are SAP job control and regular data backups. Automating these tasks can free up time for the day-to-day business of maintenance, servicing, support and troubleshooting. Clear monitoring and alerting in the event of an error help to maintain operational reliability and meet corporate compliance requirements.
