Installation/upgrade of SAP systems based on HANA Platform
All the roles that contain the string "ADM" are considered critical, as they usually refer to administrative roles. When identifying critical SAP permissions, profiles and roles, it should be noted that SAP does propose a concept for names, but this is not always taken into account by applications or its own developments.
In addition to the optimisation potential of Security Automation, which I explained in more detail in my last post, the E-Learning division also offers numerous possibilities for automation. Since many companies are not yet making the most of these potentials due to a lack of knowledge about this particular form of knowledge transfer, I would like to address this in the following post. E-learning is also a form of automation that, if used correctly, brings many positive aspects. In the end, e-learning is a way to store know-how in a form that can be retrieved again and again. This means, of course, a certain initial effort for the creator, which nevertheless pays off more than if the quality is sufficient. What are the opportunities for a company to take advantage of e-learning? A company has several ways in which it can exploit and use the area of e-learning for itself. The fundamental question that should arise immediately after the decision to do so is whether the company creates the content itself or whether it relies on the content from external sources. Both have advantages and disadvantages, which I would like to explain in the following.
What is the structure of SAP Basis?
So-called Access Control Lists (ACL) offer a good possibility to secure your gateway in order to exclude unwanted external accesses to the database of the application server. With the help of the ACL files reginfo and secinfo an access control can be implemented, in which allowed as well as forbidden communication partners can be defined. The reginfo file controls the registration of external programs on the gateway, which means that rules can be defined that allow or prohibit programs. With the help of the file secinfo you can define which users are allowed to start an external program. To be able to use these files, you must set the parameters gw/reg_info and gw/sec_info (transaction RZ11). For more information, refer to SAP Note 1408081.
Capacity must be built to provide the necessary space for pilot and research projects and to meet the increased demands. 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.
Use "Shortcut for SAP Systems" to accomplish many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
To do this, it is necessary to first make a detailed documentation of the respective object, which also describes the IST state in detail.
It contains the database management system (DBMS) and the actual data.
