What is SAP Basis?
A first important step was the introduction of playbooks to professionalize our work. Back then, SAP installation manuals were real tomes with hundreds of pages that often went around in circles and were anything but easy to understand....
Mentioning the SUM tool leads us to another part of SAP Basis: system updates and upgrades. Since SAP software receives updates from SAP at regular intervals - in the case of R/3 in the form of SPS (Support Package Stacks) and in the case of S/4HANA in the form of FPS (Feature Pack Stacks) - a large part of an SAP Basis administrator's job is to import these packages into the SAP system.
Time window for batch jobs becomes smaller and environments more complex
At the same time, there is a need to return the solutions to the SAP standard. A collaborative approach between departments and IT technology is required to assess IT technical and business benefits. It is also necessary to check whether the adaptation of business processes to avoid modifications to the implementation may be more effective and therefore more cost-effective. This must be evaluated and decided jointly. As a result, we recommend defining and implementing business standards for creating and maintaining solutions.
A degree in computer science is usually a prerequisite and is now almost compulsory. Those who have been trained as IT specialists can take advantage of further training to become SAP Basis Administrators and thus position themselves particularly well on the job market. However, quite a few companies also offer to train employees to make them fit to work as SAP Basis Administrators.
