In order to ensure the necessary expertise both in the direction of application and application-related IT departments as well as in the direction of infrastructure units, the SAP basis should be divided into an infrastructure-related SAP basis and an application-orientated SAP basis. The infrastructure-based SAP basis acts as a contact level and point of contact for IT departments such as virtualisation, storage management and databases. The application-orientated SAP basis serves as the contact and coordination level for application-related topics. BUILDING OVERARCHING EXPERT TEAMS WITH SAP basis INVOLVEMENT To reduce organisational friction points as well as to optimally handle selected topics, it is recommended to set up expert teams with the participation of the SAP basis. These teams of experts can be virtually organised and therefore of temporary duration and consist of participants from all relevant IT disciplines or business areas. If the topic of the virtual group of experts is the focus of the SAP basis, the SAP basis will take over the management and control of the expert team.
To establish the new and changed roles in one's own company, it is necessary to create incentives. This applies in particular to specialised roles. Incentives could include, for example, the offer to attend selected SME congresses, the setting of a career path, training and monetary incentives. The new roles also provide increased visibility and participation in company decisions.
In principle, exceptionally good knowledge of computer science is essential. In addition, SAP administrators must of course be particularly well versed in this specialist area and be able to deal confidently with all issues relating to SAP solutions. Since they often also work in international companies, it is an advantage if they have a very good command of written and spoken English.
The SAP Basis team handles the entire administration of an SAP system. As a company, you have to decide whether you want to leave the support of your system within your company or place the "Basis" in the hands of an SAP expert.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
This can be done, among other things, by increasing the previous resources or/ and by measures of standardisation & automation as well as "cloudability", outsourcing & outtasking.
Note that the use of the security check feature for custom code separation is licensed and incurs additional costs.
