What is "SAP Basis" and what are the tasks of "SAP Basis administrators"?
Troubleshooting and fault elimination
A Conflict Resolution Transport (CRT) is used only for add-ons, such as IS-IS or IS-OIL. It is used to eliminate conflicts that may arise between the different support packages and an add-on. Note that a CRT that applies to an add-on release also resolves all conflicts with previous releases of that add-on. In addition, a CRT may include other corrections for the corresponding add-on. A CRT can therefore always be a special add-on support package. Settings for SPAM With Additional Settings, you can access a dialogue box where you can specify general settings for the SAP Patch Manager (SPAM). These settings affect the behaviour of downloading and loading support packages of the different types equally. SPAM updates are an exception; certain settings are specified for these. You can toggle the following properties on and off: Transmission Monitor If you enable the Transmission Monitor, you can monitor the download of the support packages from the SAPNet - R/3 frontend with a graphical monitor. Otherwise, you will only get a progress bar. Scenario Choosing the scenario determines which actions should be performed while the Support Packages are being played in. The default scenario is used to fully deploy support packages; All steps are performed. The test scenario allows you to determine whether a modification match is required or whether conflicts occur that should be resolved before the support packages are loaded. The test scenario does not import data and objects into your SAP system. There is no test scenario for SPAM updates. The choice is ignored when a SPAM update is introduced. Rebuild data files You can specify whether the data files from the EPS packages will be reunzipped each time you try to play. In principle, this is the case.
The role of the SME describes an expert in a particular field, such as SME databases or SME-SAP-HANA, in the context of SAP products and is gaining in importance due to new technologies and thematic areas. The role of the SME thus corresponds to an expert role in the technology environment. It has a good network within the IT departments and, if necessary, to other business units within the company. In order to carry out its activities, it is necessary to have already acquired practical experience in the operation of its thematic focus. Expert tools are also used to fulfil his task. Through the exact definition of disciplines, the SME assumes the informally many tasks of the traditional SAP basis administrator and also new disciplines in the course of new technologies. In addition to the existing features, there will be in the future such as SME-Cloud, SME-SAP-HANA/Databases, SME-Supplier-Management, SME-Security, SME-Compliance, SME-Landscape-Virtualisation-Management (SME-Landscape-Virtualisation-Management) and SMESolution-Manager. SME-Cloud is in contact with the global cloud manager (if it exists in the company). In addition, an expression SME-Security is in contact or reported to the global corporate security sector. An expression SME-Supplier-Relationship-Management or Supplier-Management is orientated both internally (coordination with other departments) and externally (coordination and communication with suppliers). The SME cloud is a special feature of SME Supplier Management.
CHANGE TO A NEW ROLE APPROACH
A degree in computer science is usually a prerequisite and is now almost compulsory. Those who have been trained as IT specialists can take advantage of further training to become SAP Basis Administrators and thus position themselves particularly well on the job market. However, quite a few companies also offer to train employees to make them fit to work as SAP Basis Administrators.
SAP Basis ensures smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is a kind of operating system of the R/3 system or SAP ERP. It includes three layers: database, application and presentation. In addition, Basis includes many SAP middleware programs and administration tools. With Basis SAP applications can be used compatible and independent of operating system and database and can be enriched with the necessary data.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
SAP HANA (SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an SAP platform based on in-memory technology.
