How are SAP modules and SAP Basis related?
The lifecycle of an SAP system begins with the installation of the database platform. This is installed by an SAP Basis administrator and can consist of one of the following databases: HANA, Sybase, DB2, Oracle, MSSQL and MaxDB.
Ten years ago, there wasn't much more for SAP Basis experts than SAP Solution Manager. And most Basis administrators only used it at all because SAP virtually forced them to use SolMan to download updates.
High Availability ( HA/DR ) concepts
For existing solutions, it is necessary to assess to what extent the solution is customised. A modification is the more serious the more time-consuming the maintenance is, including testing, e.g. in the case of upgrades. The fewer customer specifications are available, the more suitable a system or application is for external operation by a service form to be chosen.
For the SAP basis and its employees, the change in self-understanding results in an attractive, responsible and demanding working environment. Technological diversity can be controlled and kept to the minimum necessary. This includes an overview of the existing interfaces and a controllable data flow with the associated guarantee of data security.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
