Interface monitoring and support
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.
By correctly assessing your own applications for suitability for operation with an external service provider or in the cloud, the enterprise risk of the chosen service form is minimised. Also, possible weak points or aspects that require special attention are known and can be dealt with proactively. A negative consequence during the operational operation can be largely excluded.

An important area of SAP Security is the analysis of the customer's own SAP programs, which are classically written in the proprietary SAP language ABAP. Here, too, as in all programming languages, security vulnerabilities can be programmed - whether consciously or unconsciously. However, the patterns of security vulnerabilities in ABAP code differ from those in Java stacks or Windows programs. The goal of these conventional programs is usually to either crash the program (buffer overflow) or to artificially execute the program's own code (code injection). Both is not possible in ABAP, since a crash of a process causes nothing else than the creation of an entry in the log database (Dump ST22) and a subsequent termination of the report with return to the menu starting point. So a direct manipulation as in other high level languages or servers is not possible. However, there are other manipulation possibilities.
SAP Basis is the cornerstone of your SAP system and failures can lead to significant and annoying problems. For assistance in building and expanding SAP Basis, SAP Basis consultants can help. Certified SAP consultants enable tailored solutions for any business landscape.
