Within this step, a pricing strategy is chosen. The strategy chosen must be based on the value for money. The selection shall also be justified. The price of the service will continue to be determined, as will formal decisions on clearing models and discounts. This step is less important for the SAP basis. While it is necessary to set a price for the IT products to be defined in terms of appreciation and offsetting, it does not require an elaborate pricing system. STEP 8: MARKET COMMUNICATION The step of market communication describes the way in which the respective service is advertised and how it is to be communicated with customers in this regard. It's about the communication tools that are planned, which describe the place of communication, the communication tools that describe what to advertise, and the content. These are usually derived from the target group to be applied for. For the SAP basis, the content is an essential feature of the market communication. That is, depending on the target group, information must be created and communicated. STEP 9: INTERNAL COMMUNICATION Internal communication describes how the above-mentioned aspects can also be successfully communicated internally, i.e. in the direction of one's employees.
In order to cope with the digital transformation in general, but also to cope with the changing demands on the SAP basis and its scope of responsibility, it is necessary to revise existing roles and define and establish new roles. These include the roles of the technology architect, new features of the Subject Matter Expert (SME), and the role of the Expert Team Lead in leading a group of experts. Further information can be found in chapter 7.1 and 9.3 of the Master's thesis.

Another way to secure your gateway using the SAP standard is to encrypt communication using Secure Network Communication (SNC). In the case of unprotected data communication paths between different client and server components of the SAP system that use the SAP protocol RFC or DIAG, the data exchange takes place in plain text and there is a risk that this can be read. With the help of SNC, you can create end-to-end encryption (E2EE), which can be used to secure communication between two components, such as between the application server and SAP GUI. In addition, SNC encryption provides the basis for using SAP Single Sign-On (SSO) as a security solution, which significantly reduces the internal effort of password management.
The SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of the programmes in the SAP system. It acts as an operating system for R/3 and subsequent releases including S/4HANA. Each operating system provides an environment in which programmes can run, such as MS Office on Microsoft Windows. Likewise, the SAP base system with the NetWeaver and HANA platform offers an environment in which the SAP programmes can run. In this context, the NetWeaver platform itself relies on server operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
In the Security Auditlog, you can use various filters to determine which users are logged on which client and which information.
This includes the continuous monitoring and allocation of access possibilities as well as the systematic securing of functional separation (SoD - Segregation of Duties) in the IT systems.
