Administration SAP & SAP HANA- Seminars - Online or Presence
The Basis system comprises a total of three layers (Figure 1):
In addition to the consultants working in the individual SAP modules, there is a subarea here that is not directly apparent to many and whose activities seem to be quite opaque: SAP Basis. The smooth operation of SAP systems as the heart of many companies is ensured by the work of SAP Basis administrators.
It is therefore not unusual for the authorisation allocations to be regularly reviewed in the course of a revision or by external auditors. This is a very laborious process with SAPS standard tools. In this scenario, an authorisation administrator would first have to manually assign each employee to a specific manager and determine their roles. After that, these roles should be exported from the system (for example, to an Excel file) and then submitted to the supervisor so that he can decide whether the role assignment is appropriate or not.
We set about creating detailed playbooks for all common scenarios - installations, portals, upgrades and migrations - and platforms. Today, hardly any consulting firm can do without them, but in my early days they gave us a decisive edge over the competition and earned us many satisfied customers.
Companies face a major challenge. The world is not going digital, but it is already. The age of digitisation and the related technological changes, as well as the demands of customers, bring new opportunities and new challenges for companies. In addition, the product strategy is changing, including that of SAP. In order to achieve the associated goals of the company and to implement them as effectively and efficiently as possible, the SAP basis must contribute to the design of an IT roadmap and to the design of the digitisation and also cloud strategy. A detailed review of the IT Roadmap recommendation is carried out within the master thesis in chapter 7.9.

The Security Architect - part of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) software solution developed by Xiting - offers you the possibility to precisely examine the current status of the SAP Basis settings with the help of the integrated check mode, whereby it is also possible to check several systems via RFC, starting from a central system.
