SAP Basis - Administration of SAP system landscapes
Since innovations through IoT (Internet of Things) or big data scenarios not only affect the SAP basis, but also highlight products and services for customers of their own company, the role of the SAP basis in relation to these scenarios and services must be clearly defined. In general, the SAP basis sees its responsibility here in the connectivity to the corporate network or the enterprise systems, which lie in the responsibility of the SAP basis. The support of the applications, based on the technologies as well as the associated services, is the responsibility of the respective department that offers this service. A SAP-based support service must be agreed and regulated during the conception.
In order to solve the challenges, it is necessary to develop a suitable catalogue of criteria to evaluate the feasibility or suitability of certain applications for certain service forms. The service catalogue must be structured in such a way that the criteria, which cannot be answered clearly, can be identified and subjected to continuous consideration. The catalogue of criteria cannot generally provide a 100% decision, but only a decision aid and an absolute must-criteria.
Differentiation from SAP ABAP
IT professionals are taking the first steps in automation with the use of tools like RedHat Ansible. At our company, for example, Ansible is used for mass rollouts of agents in large environments.
Soft skills also play an important role in this profession. In everyday life, communication skills are in demand, because SAP administrators are often in close contact with customers and have to respond to their wishes and questions. They also need to be able to work in a structured manner and find creative solutions and decisions. In order not to lose touch, continuous training in this area is advisable.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
If you want to set the customising changes to customise, you must go to the client control.
