The SAP Basis Plug-In is backward compatible and follows the release and maintenance strategy of the SAP R/3 Plug-In. SAP delivers it together with the SAP R/3 Plug-In. For more information, see SAP Service Marketplace at basis-plug-in → SAP Plug-In → SAP Basis Plug-In → Releases.
In addition to acute project support, our SAP Basis team can also serve as co-managers. With co-management, your SAP administrator and an abilis employee share the day-to-day tasks.

INTRODUCTION A growing number of SAP-based departments are facing major changes and challenges within the SAP product portfolio as well as in their own task environment. These result from influences of digitalisation, digital transformation, new technologies such as cloud computing or big data, but also developments such as customer experience or the Internet of Things. In order to overcome the challenges and to transform the existing SAP basis, recommendations for action are grouped in seven thematic areas. These topics cover the areas of skills and roles (cloud and supplier management, strengthening of the technology architect, focus on project work), marketing and self-understanding (creation of a service catalogue, regular exchange with the CIO, renaming of the SAP basis), new technologies and innovation (test and innovation lab, proactive & regular training), organisation in change (development of the two subject areas close to structure and application-orientated , virtual teams of experts), standardisation and automation (automation of routine tasks, outtasking of rare tasks), "cloudability", outsourcing & outtasking (assessment of usefulness for the cloud, use of appropriate service forms) and IT roadmap (influence of own IT roadmap). By reflecting on the thematic areas, methods and possibilities for implementing the recommendations are presented.
Within this step, a pricing strategy is chosen. The strategy chosen must be based on the value for money. The selection shall also be justified. The price of the service will continue to be determined, as will formal decisions on clearing models and discounts. This step is less important for the SAP basis. While it is necessary to set a price for the IT products to be defined in terms of appreciation and offsetting, it does not require an elaborate pricing system. STEP 8: MARKET COMMUNICATION The step of market communication describes the way in which the respective service is advertised and how it is to be communicated with customers in this regard. It's about the communication tools that are planned, which describe the place of communication, the communication tools that describe what to advertise, and the content. These are usually derived from the target group to be applied for. For the SAP basis, the content is an essential feature of the market communication. That is, depending on the target group, information must be created and communicated. STEP 9: INTERNAL COMMUNICATION Internal communication describes how the above-mentioned aspects can also be successfully communicated internally, i.e. in the direction of one's employees.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
