REDUCTION AND AVOIDANCE OF ORGANISATIONAL INCENTIVES
Soft skills in particular also play an important role in this job description. Communication skills are very much in demand on a day-to-day basis, because SAP administrators are often in close contact with customers and have to respond to their wishes and questions. They also need the ability to work in a structured manner and to find creative solutions and decisions. Continuous training in the field is advisable in order not to lose touch.
In the ERP environment, SAP has created a separate module for each business task area over the course of time. Companies have the option of putting together a suitable system from these modules, depending on their individual needs.

New risks in SAP HANA: In addition to the known risks, there are also new risks from the use of SAP HANA. A very good example are frequently used web applications that represent something new in the SAP area. In contrast to an SAP ERP system, HANA systems consist mainly of web applications, which were considered optional in the previous versions. These web applications can be found by various search engines on the Internet. This also applies to SAP Portal or Netweaver. There are URL schemes that help locate the system. This also applies to other SAP systems that use Web applications. This makes the new technology vulnerable to typical web attacks. SQL Injection, ABAP Code Injection, or XSS are all included. All risks known for a normal SAP system also apply to a SAP-HANA system. The data is stored unencrypted in RAM. Only then does the system gain this speed advantage. This results in risks such as a read-out by memory scraping malware. These pick up data in memory. Encryption costs performance, so it is not used by default. Especially during a migration HANA runs in a parallel system, therefore at least one new system comes to your landscape. Also note: HANA has its own tools and settings that need to be known and configured. The bottom line is that the system simply needs more attention when operating. Many settings often result in more errors. Three - points - HANA Security Plan 1) Roles and permissions In a previous SAP system, roles and permissions are certainly one of the main pillars of a secure system. Roles and permissions work differently in a HANA system. There are two types of users: 1) Default (limited): With this type of user, there are different access methods to the database. For example, the JDBC or HTTP technologies are used to give two examples.
A role concept according to best practice protects you from potential attacks within your SAP landscape. However, to protect your system from unauthorized access via the network, the SAP Gateway must be configured correctly. It enables the use of external programs via interfaces or the call of ABAP programs and serves as a technical component of the application server, which manages the communication of all RFC-based functions.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
Now you can repeat the steps for the frontend as explained above.
SAP Hosting should not be thought of as an off-the-peg suit, but as a made-to-measure suit.
