Continuous improvement of system availability and performance
System maintenance and support of running systems
The SAP Basis team takes care of the entire administration of an SAP system. As a company, you have to decide whether you want to leave the support of your system within your company or place the "Basis" in the hands of an SAP expert.
SAP Basis consulting can start with general consulting on SAP deployment and installation and configuration. In addition, the SAP consulting can transition to an external takeover of updates and upgrades of SAP components or even the complete takeover of the administration of the SAP system.

In this article on SAP Security Automation I would like to take a look at the future of automated processes in the SAP Security area. For many companies, the topic of security automation still offers a lot of potential in terms of time savings and process optimisation. Our daily work environment offers numerous tasks that could be handled excellently automatically. For this reason, in this article I present two of the possibilities that already exist in the broad area of security automation. Security Automation via SAP Security Check The first option of Security Automation, which I want to introduce here, is the automatic verification of the existing permissions. Have you ever wondered who has critical permissions in your SAP system? And have you ever tried to do this by hand? Depending on the level of expertise and experience of the privilege administrator, this is a time-consuming work. If an audit is also announced and the SAP system is to be checked for critical permissions and segregation of duties, then it is very difficult to meet all requirements and secure the eligibility landscape in this respect. For this reason, various vendors provide solutions to automate the verification of the permission system with regard to critical permissions and segregation of duties using tool support. This allows permission administrators to use their valuable time to correct the errors rather than just looking for them. For example, we use a tool that runs through the verification of over 250 rules. We then get an evaluation of which rules are violated and which points are correct. A simple example of such rules is the use of the SAP_ALL profile. Another would be to grant the jump permission in debugging (S_DEVELOP permission object with the ACTVT = 02 field). These are two relatively simple examples of Security Check tools' rulebook. In addition, queries are also made, which are located in the field of Segregation of Duties. Using this tool allowed us to move from manual validation of critical permissions to an automatic process.
In order to escape the checks carried out by the iris scanners and ultimately his own arrest, a doctor illegally reuses his eyes and acts under a new identity. With the help of the new eyes he finally succeeds in entering the secured area of the "Precogs" and he can begin his investigation. Through this "biohacking" he not only deceives the biometric security systems - he compromises the highest police control system. All stories!? "Great stories!" think now. But: No one will ever fall for a simple trim. And anyway: Biometric security systems and eye transplantation? It's not for nothing a science fiction movie! What does this have to do with RFC security? All right, I can understand your doubts. But how do you like the following story, for example? RFC Security and the Art of Identity Change Germany, everywhere, 2017: Johannes Voigt has been a medium-sized company employee for several years. He is considered a reliable and conscientious developer from the IT department. In fact, he is increasingly unfairly treated. He decides that he no longer wants to carry his frustration with him.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
