Data & system migrations
Creation of final documentation and handover
There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: TP_INTERFACE_FAILURE: Unable to call tp interface. TP_FAILURE: The tp programme could not be run. For more information, see the SLOG or ALOG log file. COMMAND_FILE_IMPORT_FAILURE: Unable to import the Object List to one or more Support Packages. The protocol of the Commandfile import contains the cause of the error. OBJECTS_LOCKED_? This step checks to see if there are any objects left in unreleased jobs that will be overwritten during the commit.
The digitization of businesses and the emergence of new technologies mean that admins have to adapt to constantly changing conditions. Currently, the following trends (which are becoming more and more evident in the market) can be mentioned:

Before the project starts, it must be clear which systems are to be connected to the IdM and which services the system is to provide. This requires close collaboration between the department and IT, as later adaptations or additional systems will extend the implementation and exceed the budget. Analysing existing data To successfully implement an Identity Management System, high quality data is essential. Users' root data must be verified, updated, or maintained. Automation with incomplete or even incorrect data is otherwise not conceivable. Rethinking the Permission Concept With the introduction of an Identity Management System and a workflow for permission granting, the existing roles should be scrutinised once again. You should ask yourself whether the user knows what role he chooses from the current catalogue and whether it is sufficient for his task. Set Role-Owner Not only the user needs to know which role to choose. There must also be a person in charge of the role who adapts or adapts the role as required or acts as a point of contact when required.
An SAP HANA system lives on applications. When you develop these applications, you should think about securing them early. Using HTTPS instead of HTTP is one of the basics. In addition, you ensure secure authentication and implement a Secure Software Development Lifecycle to ensure backup in your own developments. In your applications, you better start to check them for risks early on and run this backup process regularly. You can analyse and restrict access to source code later. Create a risk register and address security vulnerabilities in a risk-based manner. The later you discover a risk, the more expensive the fix will be. Further information on SAP Security in addition to the article can be found here. Do you have any further questions or suggestions concerning this topic? Would you like us to go further on the subject? I look forward to your feedback!
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
ABAP is therefore the tool of the trade for SAP developers.
A subsequent hypercare phase is at least as understandable as the continuous optimization of your SAP systems, for example through performance analyses.
