Benefits of this course SAP HANA - Installation and Administration
SAP administrators are present wherever SAP systems are used. This is now true for many industries and business sectors. SAP systems can be found in the areas of accounting, cost accounting, activity-based costing and controlling. In all of these areas, they ensure smooth operation and further development, helping the company to make internal processes more efficient and thus save costs and resources.
The tasks of a company's own SAP Basis department are undergoing enormous change at many companies, as SAP is also relying more and more on cloud services. Strategically, completely self-hosted SAP systems are becoming rarer and the proportion of customers using an SAP system from the cloud is increasing. The new roles of SAP Basis employees tend to be "enablers" and coordinators between the cloud provider and internal IT and the business departments. Until that time comes, companies can also rely on external service providers to offer expert know-how as well as operational support for the transition period.

I recommend that you schedule the background job PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY with the report RHAUTUPD_NEW. Scheduling the RHAUTUPD_NEW report with two variants has proven to be a best practice: Once a day before users log on for the first time (e.g. midnight or very early in the morning). This way the users are synchronized once a day. Once a month (or even once a week) with the option "Perform cleanup", so that obsolete profiles and user mappings are regularly cleaned up. Also handy: If the naming conventions of your roles allow it, you can also align the report according to different time zones. For example, I have a customer who runs the user synchronization for his users in the USA and Asia at different times, so that the daily business of the respective users is not disturbed.
The tasks of an SAP Basis administrator are management and administration of SAP systems. In practice, it means taking responsibility for the maintenance environment of the systems, their cooperation, updating, solving user problems and efficiency issues (concerning the network, databases or operating systems), backup copies and architecture. Another task of this position is also to follow new market trends and propose compliant solutions with them.
