Each SAP Basis system must be controlled and managed by an administrator. This person is responsible for the smooth operation of the system. This can be an internal administrator or it can be handed over to external service providers.
The consistent implementation of the role concept enables a manageable complexity of the tasks per employee. At the same time, through the respective SMEs, the concept creates expertise in specific topics and enables communication on an equal footing with upstream or downstream IT departments as well as with external service providers. The establishment of technology architects also ensures that the overall picture is not left out of sight in the context of the SAP product portfolio. Deficits can also be addressed on issues such as policies and security. Overall, the role concept provides guidance for the employees and their career planning as well as guidance regarding the range of tasks and contacts for IT departments and business areas.
CREATING NEW ROLES

SAP Basis administrators still spend much of their time reviewing their systems or doing project work such as new installations. With the transition to more automated, container-based environments that span multiple clouds, the role of the administrator will also need to be redefined and root cause analysis will take on a much higher profile.
