SAP BASIS - THE SECURE FOUNDATION OF THE SAP SYSTEM
In this case, the term stands for the basic administration of SAP systems. In this context, responsible employees perform a number of classic tasks.
Another way to secure your gateway using the SAP standard is to encrypt communication using Secure Network Communication (SNC). In the case of unprotected data communication paths between different client and server components of the SAP system that use the SAP protocol RFC or DIAG, the data exchange takes place in plain text and there is a risk that this can be read. With the help of SNC, you can create end-to-end encryption (E2EE), which can be used to secure communication between two components, such as between the application server and SAP GUI. In addition, SNC encryption provides the basis for using SAP Single Sign-On (SSO) as a security solution, which significantly reduces the internal effort of password management.
SAP administrators are present wherever SAP systems are used. This now applies to many industries and corporate divisions. 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.
It is therefore not unusual for the authorisation allocations to be regularly reviewed in the course of a revision or by external auditors. This is a very laborious process with SAPS standard tools. In this scenario, an authorisation administrator would first have to manually assign each employee to a specific manager and determine their roles. After that, these roles should be exported from the system (for example, to an Excel file) and then submitted to the supervisor so that he can decide whether the role assignment is appropriate or not.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
Since they often also work in international companies, it is an advantage if they have a very good command of written and spoken English.
However, there is the possibility to adapt it dynamically with the report RSMEMORY.
