SM64 Batch Events: Overview and Management
Here, too, the requirements profile for SAP Basis experts has shifted: Database administration is simply part of the job today. The majority of SAP customers place the SAP HANA database in the hands of the Basis team for build and run operations.
A trick often used by administrators is to allow for time buffers before starting the next job. The buffer times are necessary because it is not possible to predict exactly how long a job will take to complete, since the duration depends on many incalculable parameters. Since it makes little sense to run backups and SAP jobs at the same time, these tasks are usually done one after the other rather than in parallel. In more complex environments, data backup durations, time buffers and job runtimes add up to such an extent that the time available is no longer sufficient to perform all activities within the available time corridor. Tools that work with status dependencies and then automatically start the next job when its predecessor job has been processed without errors can help here.
Soft skills in particular also play an important role in this job description. Communication skills are very much in demand on a day-to-day basis, because SAP administrators are often in close contact with customers and have to respond to their wishes and questions. They also need the ability to work in a structured manner and to find creative solutions and decisions. Continuous training in the field is advisable in order not to lose touch.
