ORGANISATION IN CHANGE
SNOTE Note Assistant (SAP Notes)
SAP administrators are present wherever SAP systems are used. This now applies to many industries and corporate divisions. SAP systems can be found in the areas of accounting, cost accounting, activity-based costing and controlling. In all of these areas, they ensure smooth operation and further development, helping the company to make internal processes more efficient and thus save costs and resources.
SAP's client concept enables a SAP system to be split into several logical sub-systems - clients. These subsystems can be used independently and in isolation as separate systems. But how should non-client transactions be treated? How can you prevent one client from accessing the other and why should you want to prevent that? In this blog post, I will answer these questions and discuss some negative examples. Why is it important to consider independent transactions separately? Imagine that every one of your employees is allowed to create or change a client in the production system, or worse, both. Creating and modifying a client in the production system is authorised and documented - you wonder what could possibly go wrong? The risk in this case is a loss of integrity of system and data, loss of confidentiality: With each new client, Superuser SAP* lives up to its comprehensive, cross-client rights and the assigned standard password.

Of course, there are several other storage parameters that would exceed the scope of this article. You can read their function in the SAP documentation.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
The SAP Basis Plug-In is a software component that provides SAP components with BW Service API technology as well as CRM Middleware, Supply Chain Event Management, and Financial Basis functionality to connect to these systems.
