What has changed in the past decade and what can we expect in the coming decade? How will they affect the requirements profile of SAP Basis experts and how can they adapt to them?
SAP NetWeaver Integration Technology
SAP Basis is also known as module BC or application Basis. SAP Basis refers to all transactions, programs and objects that control the functions of the overall system. This includes, among other things, user and authorization management as well as the configuration of interfaces via RFC.
A BW system often plays a very central role in larger companies. Here the data from the various connected source systems are analysed and reported centrally. A previous customer of mine had a BW system, to which a total of over 20 other SAPP production systems were connected. With such a large and mostly living system landscape, it is normal that individual systems are dismantled from time to time. However, especially with large SAP landscapes, there are strict regulations regarding the permissions of technical RFC users. For this reason, the simple "right-click —> delete" of a source system in RSA1 will often not lead to the target, but rather to a failed permission check. With this blog post, I'll show you a workaround on how to clean a source system from a BW system using the RSAR_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_DELETE and RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT function blocks.

Basis is a set of programs and tools that interface with databases, operating systems, communication protocols, and business applications (such as FI, CO, MM, etc). The full form of BASIS is "Business Application Software Integrated Solution".
If regulations for the standardisation of SAP systems or tasks and procedures are in place, they must also be consistently complied with and their compliance must also be verified. In case of non-compliance, for example due to project influences or technological problems, the exception must be returned to the standard in a timely manner. Resources must be made available for this.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
