Practical experience at home and abroad has given us a proven view of heterogeneous system landscapes. This flows into our consulting as a further plus point and creates not only smooth functionality but also cost efficiency of your individual system landscape.
SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is like an operating system for R/3 as well as S/4. Every operating system, such as Windows, provides an environment in which programs developed for that environment can run, such as MS Office. Likewise, the SAP Basis system provides an environment in which SAP programs can run. In any R/3 or S/4 system, there is a database server, such as HANA, where the database resides. It provides the necessary data to all other applications. The data here is not only data tables, but also applications, system control tables and user data.
Migration of your ERP landscape to SAP on HANA or S/4HANA
In order to ensure the stability of the systems and to reduce the risk through proprietary developments, release and patch management must be implemented. Standardised procedures can help to introduce proprietary developments, such as test strategies or service level agreements (SLAs). It is also important to align the productivity setting of customer applications with the maintenance windows and RTO (Recovery-Time-Objective).
An SAP HANA system lives on applications. When you develop these applications, you should think about securing them early. Using HTTPS instead of HTTP is one of the basics. In addition, you ensure secure authentication and implement a Secure Software Development Lifecycle to ensure backup in your own developments. In your applications, you better start to check them for risks early on and run this backup process regularly. You can analyse and restrict access to source code later. Create a risk register and address security vulnerabilities in a risk-based manner. The later you discover a risk, the more expensive the fix will be. Further information on SAP Security in addition to the article can be found here. Do you have any further questions or suggestions concerning this topic? Would you like us to go further on the subject? I look forward to your feedback!
