The core of SAP Basis is the application layer with one or more application servers and a message server. The message server is used for communication between the application servers and transmits jobs between them. The application layer communicates with the database layer on the one hand and the presentation layer on the other. The applications on the application server request the required data from the database, process it and prepare it for the user, who displays it in his Graphical User Interface (GUI) via the presentation layer. Conversely, the application server passes information that the user enters via the GUI on to the database.
Hybrid clouds have long been the norm, even if this development has come about rather by accident. Most companies have chosen different cloud software offerings and integrated them accordingly, be it Workday for HCM, SalesForce for CRM, Marketo for marketing automation, Coupa for SRM or Vendavo for pricing. Many have also chosen SAP variants of these solutions with SuccessFactors, Cloud for Customer, Marketing Cloud, Ariba and CPQ.

Only the system administrator should have permission to perform the following actions: Support Packages Download Support Packages Play Support Packages Confirm Successfully Recorded Support Packages Reset Support Package Status Support Packages eliminate errors in the SAP system or make necessary adjustments due to legal changes, for example. The affected objects will be replaced in your system. Each Support Package is valid for one release level (but for all databases and operating systems) and requires a precisely defined number of predecessors. The upgrade from the following release or revision level contains all support packages from the previous booths that were available until the upgrade was delivered. SPAM ensures that support packages are only played in the order specified. To avoid problems, play all support packages as they are deployed. This allows you to keep your system up to date.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
The growing number of installed components - such as SAP BW, SCM, SRM, PI/PO - and systems integrated via interfaces - RFC, WebServices - further increase the requirements.
