Define Tasks and Systems
Restore systems + DB
Job scheduling: your system needs to run various automatic background jobs that consume resources. Your administrator must carefully schedule these tasks when user demand is low so they don't impact performance.

Companies face a major challenge. The world is not going digital, but it is already. The age of digitisation and the related technological changes, as well as the demands of customers, bring new opportunities and new challenges for companies. In addition, the product strategy is changing, including that of SAP. In order to achieve the associated goals of the company and to implement them as effectively and efficiently as possible, the SAP basis must contribute to the design of an IT roadmap and to the design of the digitisation and also cloud strategy. A detailed review of the IT Roadmap recommendation is carried out within the master thesis in chapter 7.9.
Flexible response to peak loads
Either temporary programme calls are blocked that are actually desired or enormously large gateway logs must be analysed. If, due to the heavy workload, one were to decide to forgo the use of the access control lists permanently, this would be a major security vulnerability. The unprotected system does not have any limitations on the external services that may register, and there are no rules for running programmes. One possible consequence would be, for example, the registration of an external system on which malicious programmes exist. At the moment when foreign programmes are running on your system without any control, you can expect that great damage will be done. For example, it ranges from an unnoticed reading of purchase and sales figures, a diversion of funds, to a paralysis or manipulation of the entire system. In addition, this scenario is also possible for poorly maintained access control lists. Our solution: secinfo and reginfo Generator for SAP RFC Gateway To solve the problem, we have developed a generator that can automatically create secinfo and reginfo files based on gateway logs. The basic idea is based on the logging-based approach. It performs the task of time-consuming analysis of log files and also ensures maximum reliability through automation. Nevertheless, the entries of the generated files should be checked by one person. Since the log files used as input are sensitive data, of course none of the inserted data leave your system. More information about the generator can be found here.

The higher the degree of standardisation of operational and maintenance tasks, the more effective the technical operation and maintenance can be. At the same time, this simplifies outsourcing and, if necessary, the use of a cloud solution. CHOOSING AN APPROPRIATE SERVICE FORM Regardless of the chosen service form, as well as outsourcing and outtasking, the overall responsibility for the availability and performance of the IT-supported applications remains with the company. This still means internal coordination of maintenance windows or release booths, which remains in place. Similarly, the services provided by the external partner must be regularly monitored and their quality checked. Therefore, the chosen IT strategy must be chosen from this point of view with the lowest risk. If the technical operation is not sufficiently assessed in the decision, there is a significant business risk.

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.

Ten years ago, SAP HANA was little more than a promise that made SAP CEO Hasso Plattner's eyes light up.

The operator is now responsible for ensuring smooth and safe operation in the SAP environment.
