Tasks and activities
In the past, when we deployed SAP environments, we first had to work out a detailed sizing and architecture and pass it on to the procurement team, which then ordered the systems and installed them in the data center. From there, it went on to the network team, the storage team, the operating system team, and the database team. So it was not uncommon for three to six months to pass between the architecture design and the installation of a new SAP system.
In addition to proactive monitoring to prevent possible errors or even complete system failures, our SAP Basis team also implements clearly defined authorization concepts. So that unauthorized persons cannot access important data and your employees are protected from unintentional violations.
A role concept according to best practice protects you from potential attacks within your SAP landscape. However, to protect your system from unauthorized access via the network, the SAP Gateway must be configured correctly. It enables the use of external programs via interfaces or the call of ABAP programs and serves as a technical component of the application server, which manages the communication of all RFC-based functions.
When I began my career administering SAP ERP on Oracle in the early 1990s, running a database required far more knowledge. An Oracle administration expert with a decade of experience understood perhaps only about 5% of what the database required.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP base.
In addition to the range of tasks covered by the SAP basis, it is also necessary to specify for which tasks and topics the SAP basis is not responsible.
