Archiving of workflows
Application layer (application server and message server)
We can say that Basis is the operating system for SAP applications and ABAP. Basis provides services such as communication with the operating system, database communication, memory management, application data collection at runtime, web requests, business data exchange, etc.
Over time, the tasks associated with the base became more complex and time-consuming, so that only the consultants could handle them. A need arose to hire a person to deal only with Basis matters.
Migration of SAP systems to HANA DB
SAP Basis is also known as module BC or application Basis. In this context, SAP Basis refers to all transactions, programs and objects that control the functions of the overall system. This includes, among other things, user and authorization management as well as the configuration of interfaces via RFC.
Therefore, there can also be critical permissions, profiles, and roles that do not fit in the naming scheme defined by SAP. Manual identification of critical SAP permissions is difficult overall. However, tools are available that automatically check for critical permissions. In this case, the critical SAP permissions are usually predefined by special verification software. If the critical permissions, profiles, and roles are identified, they should be adjusted according to the permission planning. The system will then be checked to see if the desired system behaviour has been achieved or if malfunctions occur. This adjustment process may be complex in the event of major changes and should not be carried out on the production system.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
For large system landscapes, this procedure is very complex.
The master's thesis identified and examined in detail influencing factors such as technological trends and the SAP product strategy as well as the company-specific conditions.
