If we look at the question of standardisation, this concerns not only the administrative side of IT products, but also the standardisation and simplification of IT products offered by the SAP basis. For this purpose, tools such as ITIL for standardised tasks and the development of IT product and IT service catalogues have already established themselves to the greatest extent possible. These clearly describe the IT services provided. In addition to the definition of the service to be provided, the clear description shall include the identification of disclaimers and conditions that must exist. Also part of the service description is a price that can be composed of fixed and variable parts. This simplification and bundling of the product portfolios should also reduce the administrative burden when ordering, activating, changing, terminating and, of course, invoicing. The description of the IT services and the associated development of an IT product catalogue is the basis for standardisation, whether the recipient is an external or internal customer (e.g. a business unit). One difficulty is the definition of IT products, i.e. the pooling of IT services and resources. An orientation towards the idea of cloud computing can help. The characteristics of cloud computing are the provision of standardised services in terms of performance and type of performance, results-orientated services, provision of performance to a wide range of service customers, scalability, transaction-based billing and high risk of IT service failure.

The technology architect is well acquainted with the company's core business, has business process and project management expertise. As part of its activities, the technology architect does not exercise project management or project management. He develops and develops strategies and solutions in coordination with higher authorities, IT departments and also business units. It defines requirements for the implementation and operation, which it aligns with the operator or with the necessary expression of the Subject Matter Expert. He also takes care of new technologies in his field of activity and is thus a driver of innovation and a catalyst from a technical point of view. He also acts as a contact for enterprise architects in the company. However, this role will be much more coordinated in the future. The range of tasks will therefore increase in width. An additional requirement in the future will be the understanding of company policy.
Using various user, administration and monitoring tools, the SAP Basis system is controlled and managed by an administrator, who is thus responsible for its trouble-free operation. Many companies hand over these tasks to an external service provider.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
