Is that all there is to know about SAP Basis?
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.
The SAP basis as an organisational unit within a growing IT organisation is facing far-reaching changes. The growing number of technologies and the growing need for integration and collaboration with upstream and downstream IT departments means that the SAP basis is constantly growing. Examples of organisational concepts and further information can be found in chapters 7.6 and 9.4 of the Master's thesis.

The implementation of a cross-sectional function will promote and safeguard the operation of the SAP systems that form the backbone of the company. By coordinating the SAP basis with other IT departments, the optimisation is always done in the overall context of the company or the IT organisation. Eliminating the separation of SAP and non-SAP topics in areas where it is considered useful will lead to expert groups and synergy effects through centralisation.
The application layer is the central component of the SAP R/3 system. This layer is therefore also referred to by SAP as the actual basis system. Within the layer there are application servers and a message server.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
Deleting assignments between users and roles if either the user or the role does not exist.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
There is no way around containers, and even SAP will soon have to reorient itself here and allow the NetWeaver stack to be run in containers.
