Monitoring of systems
The SAP Authorization Concept course provides a fundamental overview of the SAP authorization concept. The goal is to understand the authorization concept and the ability to define individual authorization profiles. The delivered roles and the profile generator of SAP are used.
With simple job programming, you can start in clear environments with few dependencies. If the number of jobs and the complexity increases, an automatic job control is a good choice. Honico Batchman is such a solution, a 100% SAP integrated AddOn, which is quickly and easily installed via normal transports. The advantage here is that no additional infrastructure is required; instead, the existing SAP system landscape is used for the entire control and execution without incurring a loss in performance. This also ensures full audit and operational security (compliance). Since pure SAP systems are rather the exception, non-SAP systems can also be controlled and monitored. As a third option, high-end solutions are available that additionally monitor the infrastructure and legacy. Widely used products in this segment are UC4 and Arvato Streamworks. These three solution options differ significantly in terms of price and scope of services. IT departments in companies must therefore evaluate which solution is best suited to their own requirements.

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.

Examples of names are: SAP Cross-Application, SAP Innovation & Technology, SAP Services & Innovation, SAP Operations & Innovation or SAP Service Provider & Business Innovator. DESCRIPTION OF OWN PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE PORTFOLIO In order to be consulted by upstream or downstream entities, it is necessary to provide a detailed and understandable description of your service portfolio. This means that it can be explicitly stated in which cases the SAP basis needs to be contacted and involved in order to make the necessary decisions and not jeopardise a project or company success. In addition to the range of tasks covered by the SAP basis, it is also necessary to specify for which tasks and topics the SAP basis is not responsible. This recommendation is to be considered as universal and applies to all IT departments in order to clearly distinguish them and document the performance of their own IT organisation. INTERNAL MARKETING DESIGN AND ESTABLISH Building on the recommendation [A3], it is recommended to design and establish an internal marketing. The aim is to provide a transparent picture of the activities carried out in terms of the company's success and which are not visible to everyone.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
Since platforms are increasingly moving to the cloud and SAP HANA or S/4HANA can also be used as a cloud solution, the practice of SAP administration has changed significantly: Companies can rent the required resources directly from SAP, operate them completely themselves, or obtain them as a managed service from specialized third-party providers.
In concrete terms, this means that the message server takes care of load balancing and determines, for example, on which application server a user logs on.
