The identification of critical SAP permissions for the use of an SAP system must therefore be carried out in any case. In addition to permissions, you can also identify critical profiles and roles that are already in the delivery state.

There are several ways to introduce and operate new applications. As a company you have the choice between internal realisation and operation, outsourcing, cloud computing and so-called outtasking. In deciding on one of the above concepts, the SAP basis must be included for the evaluation of various technological and operational aspects, which offers the possibility to develop a sound decision. This decision has a significant impact on the future operation of SAP and the associated operating and maintenance costs. The recommendations listed here are intended to help you decide on other forms of service. Information on the recommendation can be found in the Master's thesis in chapters 7.8 and 9.6.
Relevance of SAP Basis
The decision to outsource a task or service should be taken not only in terms of cost, but also by assessing the competitive differentiation and strategic importance. Characteristics for describing the costs are the specificity of the task and the embossing by unit cost degression, i.e. decreasing costs with increasing number of tasks or performance. Of strategic importance are, in particular, those tasks and services which are difficult to imitate by competing companies. Figure 4 compares the strategic importance and cost advantages in order to arrive at fundamentally valid statements regarding the usefulness of outsourcing for certain IT tasks and services. In addition to this, as already discussed by Recommendation [A2], it is then worthwhile to establish a catalogue of criteria for evaluating and looking in detail at certain characteristics of the application or services. An exemplary catalogue of criteria can be found in chapter 9.6 of the Master thesis. Figure 4: IT Outsourcing Decision Matrix THE DECISION TO OUTSOURCE A TASK OR PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE MADE NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF COSTS BUT ALSO BY ASSESSING COMPETITION DIFFERENTIATION AND STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE.

This enhances the capabilities of SAP HANA base administrators and increases the level of service they should provide. Your Basis team can more easily fine-tune your data replication strategy to meet demanding disaster recovery and high availability standards.

Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.

In addition to the interfaces between system elements, Basis includes a development environment for R/3 applications, a data directory, and user and system administration and monitoring tools.

Before creating the instances, it must be ensured that the correct application server is selected, otherwise problems with the instances in the user's application may occur later.
