In order to ensure the necessary expertise both in the direction of application and application-related IT departments as well as in the direction of infrastructure units, the SAP basis should be divided into an infrastructure-related SAP basis and an application-orientated SAP basis. The infrastructure-based SAP basis acts as a contact level and point of contact for IT departments such as virtualisation, storage management and databases. The application-orientated SAP basis serves as the contact and coordination level for application-related topics. BUILDING OVERARCHING EXPERT TEAMS WITH SAP basis INVOLVEMENT To reduce organisational friction points as well as to optimally handle selected topics, it is recommended to set up expert teams with the participation of the SAP basis. These teams of experts can be virtually organised and therefore of temporary duration and consist of participants from all relevant IT disciplines or business areas. If the topic of the virtual group of experts is the focus of the SAP basis, the SAP basis will take over the management and control of the expert team.
By correctly assessing your own applications for suitability for operation with an external service provider or in the cloud, the enterprise risk of the chosen service form is minimised. Also, possible weak points or aspects that require special attention are known and can be dealt with proactively. A negative consequence during the operational operation can be largely excluded.
The 5 most common errors in SAP test management In this blog post I would like to discuss the 5 most common errors in SAP test management, which in my experience occur regularly in this area. I hope that with this I can give you some guidance so that you can avoid these mistakes. No test management Quite simple. You have complex SAP software in use or are just introducing a new module tailored to your company, but the test process plays a subordinate role and tests take place only sporadically and unstructured? Then you have already made the first mistake. To ensure high software quality, avoid hidden consequential error costs and consciously plan for a test period instead of the risk of time bottlenecks, a methodical approach should be planned. Too much testing If you have decided to introduce test management, you need to weigh up the resources required for this. A large amount of testing quickly pushes the cost-benefit ratio into the realm of inefficiency, because the time required for testing drives up costs. On the other hand, the test quality should of course be high. Therefore, a structured and comprehensive approach is of high importance. Basically, you should make sure that the costs for the test effort do not exceed the average of the consequential failure costs.
In the default scenario, the support packages in the queue are fully loaded. In the event of an error, you will not be able to resume and complete the playback successfully unless the error(s) are resolved. Prerequisites The queue is already defined. Procedure To set the scenario you want, select Additions Settings. Select the desired scenario. Select Insert Support Package Queue. You can also use this function to restore an aborted commit procedure. The status bar provides information on the progress of the commit and the latest steps of the SAP Patch Manager. During the recording, you may get into the modification comparison (SPDD, SPAU). If you are playing with the default scenario, you must immediately perform the comparison of Dictionary objects (transaction SPDD), whereas when you compare Repository objects (transaction SPAU), you have the choice to skip it first and perform it later (modification comparison [page 22]). The mode is blocked while a Support Package is being introduced. To avoid repeated login, open a second mode before inserting the queue.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
Flags & Criticality The tool offers in its options the possibility to set flags for critical roles and highlight them in particular.
This brings convenience, flexibility and a degree of freedom without neglecting operational security.
