How relevant is SAP Basis?
SAP System Management
Today, "SAP Basis" often does not mean (only) the software architecture. Instead, the term is not infrequently a task description. This refers to the basic administration of the system: installation and configuration, resource management, maintenance and monitoring of a company's SAP setups. This can include user management, patch management and system monitoring. Backup policy, rights management and daily maintenance tasks are also responsibilities of Basis admins.
In the context of the SAP basis, the deployment of an SAP application server for any SAP system can be used as an example. Parameters include processor count, memory, disk space, operating system, and run-time environment.

Through a sound expertise in the SAP technology environment, it is recommended to bring the know-how of the SAP basis into the IT strategy and IT roadmap. For this, the responsibility lies primarily with the CIO as the carrier and responsible of the IT strategy and the IT organisation. Likewise, the SAP basis should serve as a sparring partner for individuals and boards (such as enterprise architects) that significantly influence the strategy.
As a member of the SAP Basis specialist team, your responsibilities will include the design, operation, administration, support and installation of an extensive SAP system landscape with over 50 systems for 17 universities and 2 institutions in Lower Saxony. Furthermore, you will monitor the SAP system landscape as well as its interfaces to external systems and carry out measures within the scope of software lifecycle management (e.g. note maintenance, support stacks, release upgrades) and change management (e.g. hardware migration, transport system and documentation). As part of the SAP Basis team, you will be the contact person for organizational and technical questions of the universities and in 3rd-level support for user inquiries.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
