Utilities for monitoring and managing databases
Controlling users and access rights
In the last few years, I have been asked time and again what SAP Basis is and what we SAP Basis administrators do in our daily work. With this blog post I would like to provide a little insight into exactly this area of work.
SAP Basis consultants are experts in consulting. The job of an SAP Basis consultant has many areas of responsibility, such as designing applications, installing support for SAP modules, analyzing and optimizing processes, creating reports, and modeling and extracting data.
Basis & Technology
The database layer manages all data in the R/3 System. It contains the database management system (DBMS) and the actual data.
In practice, it is quite possible that the target specifications defined in the security concept do not match the current actual status. Therefore, especially with regard to SAP security, it must always be checked whether the necessary SAP basic settings also correspond to the minimum level. Although a manual check is possible, it is very time-consuming because the necessary regularizations have to be read, interpreted and technically implemented. The Security Architect - part of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) software solution developed by Xiting - offers you the possibility to precisely examine the current status of the SAP Basis settings with the help of the integrated check mode, whereby it is also possible to check several systems via RFC, starting from a central system. The scope of the check of system settings and system security includes not only the SAP Basis settings presented here, but also other SAP Basis settings. The scope of the check mode can be extended by self-defined check IDs.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
For internal purposes, the SAP administrator also prepares documentation and uses it to search for errors, the cause of which he or she tries to combat.
If it is missing from the queue, it cannot be defined.
