An SAP administrator has the task of controlling a company's SAP system and ensuring its proper functioning. He/she maintains and monitors SAP applications and is also responsible for their development.
An SAP landscape is made up of numerous individual modules that are fully compatible with each other and can be used to map the business processes of all areas of a company. SAP Basis is used to ensure the functionality of the individual modules.
SAP HANA (SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an SAP platform based on in-memory technology. With SAP HANA, you can achieve enormous performance increases over conventional databases that were previously unthinkable. This enables you to analyze and evaluate mass data almost in real time without the need for data aggregation.
Tasks such as the update of components, the insertion of security updates or monitoring should be further automated. It is recommended to use only one automation tool (SAP Solution Manager or SAP LVM). Custom solutions and scripts should not be used or replaced with standard tools if possible, because otherwise different script languages and script versions will have to be managed, resulting in a lot of maintenance. Standardised SAP scripts are welcome here. A useful definition of thresholds, for example on the basis of historical system behaviour, must also be defined for monitoring.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.

Furthermore, the program includes the setup of printers, knowledge of system security and system monitoring as well as transport functions.
