Migration and management of cloud-based solutions
An understandable and comprehensible strategy enables the SAP basis to derive it as easily as possible to practice and to the resulting requirements and activities. The main task of the SAP basis is to support new business models by implementing the strategy and to show how much technical and financial effort and benefit is generated. It is also the task of the SAP basis to identify the skills and resources necessary for them and to ensure their existence at an early stage.
On the one hand, staff clerks (or other personnel officials) should be able to carry out their important work. On the other hand, the protection of personal data of one's own employees is one of the most important tasks of the authorisation system. Any mistake in this area can cause the company's data protection officers to wring their hands over their heads. For this reason, tools are currently being developed to provide security and visibility in the HR permissions area. The basic idea is a clear overview that shows which data certain users in the SAP system can access. Based on this, automatic checks can be developed, which run in the background and regularly check whether critical gaps have been created by changes to the permissions in the HR area. The use of such a tool can create more security, especially in the HR authorisation environment. In addition, the possibility of the overview function is very pleasant and relieving for all involved.

Therefore, it is recommended to start thinking about how your company is prepared for security automation. If you are interested in setting up and preparing a company outside the security area, I can recommend the book 'Consulting Y' by Ferdinando Piumelli (Managing Director of mindsquare GmbH). In this book, Mr. Piumelli describes his observations and experiences of digital transformation as a strategy consultant for leading DAX30 companies. In doing so, he is focusing on the near future, which, in the spirit of the digital revolution, will have a major impact on the world's large companies and economy.
REGULAR FLOW OF INFORMATION
SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of programs in the SAP system. It acts like an operating system for R/3 and subsequent releases including S/4HANA. Every operating system provides an environment in which programs can run, such as MS Office on Microsoft Windows. In the same way, the SAP Basis system with the NetWeaver and HANA platforms provides an environment in which SAP programs can run. In this context, the NetWeaver platform itself relies on server operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
Another major topic is the migration of SAP systems, both locally from one data center to another and from one operating system to another or from one database type to another. As a rule, the SWPM tool is used here again.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP base.
You can also use this function to restore an aborted commit procedure.
Therefore, SAP Basis is an important core of any SAP infrastructure and is required in both predecessor versions such as R/3 and current versions such as S/4HANA 2021.
