In order for your SAP system landscape to function permanently, it requires error-free installation and regular support. You can rely on these services:
Because hybrid landscapes are seen as the operating model of the future, it is necessary to develop monitoring strategies for this. What is important is an end-to-end view based on the process and not just an individual view of the systems, services or components involved. This supports the requirement of a company-wide interface function of the SAP basis.
SAP Basis is structured as a classic three-tier model. It contains the following components: Database layer (relational database management system) / Application layer (application server and message server) / Presentation layer (graphical user interface).
SAP Basis Operation manages the IT underlying the SAP system. In addition, the operation ensures the maintenance and availability of business processes. Various tools can be used for this purpose, which take over the maintenance, care, configuration and monitoring of the SAP system. Basic operation is the prerequisite for ensuring that the SAP system is fully operational and covers the business processes well.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
It is therefore not unusual for the authorisation allocations to be regularly reviewed in the course of a revision or by external auditors.
The following table shows the typical structure of a three-tier R/3 Basis system.
