Today, "SAP Basis" often does not mean (only) the software architecture. Instead, the term is not infrequently a task description. This refers to the basic administration of the system: installation and configuration, resource management, maintenance and monitoring of a company's SAP setups. This can include user management, patch management and system monitoring. Backup policy, rights management and daily maintenance tasks are also responsibilities of Basis admins.
Using various user, administration and monitoring tools, the SAP Basis system is controlled and managed by an administrator, who is thus responsible for its trouble-free operation. Many companies hand over these tasks to an external service provider.
