SAP Administration I
Administrators often need to replicate part or all of a database, for example, to create a system backup or test an upgrade before putting it into production. In the past, this was surprisingly difficult to do with most databases. With HANA, replication works instantly and offers richer features and better control than previous databases.
The SAP basis requires a separation layer to upstream and downstream IT departments, which is clearly defined. In the direction of the infrastructure, for example, this can be the upper edge of the operating system. This distinction must also be drawn in the direction of application development. Here there are various services offered today by the SAP basis, which are more closely related to application, such as control of background processing, transport or also the automation of certain activities. In principle, it is necessary to examine which tasks can continue to be carried out in the SAP basis due to the requirements and which can be given in expert units.

For more information about the lowest support package level for SAP ABA and SAP Basis to install an SAP Basis Plug-In, see the SAP Service Marketplace. For more information about the lowest support package level for the corresponding SAP R/3 plug-in, see the SAP Service Marketplace. This level depends on the release of SAP R/3 or SAP R/3 Enterprise.
Projects: Your SAP Basis administrator plays a key role in planning and executing system upgrades and migrations. He is also responsible for transport management and tests software updates to ensure they are compatible with the landscape. In addition, he must ensure that they are installed in the correct order.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept.
Mentioning the SUM tool leads us to another part of SAP Basis: system updates and upgrades.
