Standardisation of SAP operations as well as SAP systems can be seen as a preparation for automation as well as for cloud, outtasking and outsourcing service forms. Therefore, in the whole context of standardisation and automation, a sequence of tasks and systems needs to be followed. To do this, it is necessary to first make a detailed documentation of the respective object, which also describes the IST state in detail. A standardisation strategy can then be developed, defined and implemented. Only then can we consider automation, outtasking, cloud, and outsourcing.
Customers with such a case regularly contact us. Creating a Permission Concept from the ground up is often a time-consuming task. Furthermore, the know-how, which aspects should be dealt with in an authorisation concept and how the corresponding processes can look practical and at the same time audit-proof is often lacking. Our solution: tool-based generation of an individual, written authorisation concept In this situation, we have recommended to our customers the tool-based generation of a written authorisation concept directly from the SAP system. We use the XAMS Security Architect tool, with which we have had good experiences. This includes a template for a revision-proof and comprehensible, written authorisation concept. It includes established best practices for role and entitlement management. The template covers all relevant areas in a permission concept. The included text of the authorisation concept is completely customisable, so that the concept can be tailored to your situation without creating a permission concept from scratch. Dynamically update the written authorisation concept One of the biggest challenges after the development of an authorisation concept is to keep it up to date in the long term and to measure the sustainable implementation in the system. This is achieved by integrating live data such as configuration settings and defined rules directly from the connected system. For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept. The following screenshot shows an example of what the appearance in the concept document might look like. Automatically check and monitor compliance with the concept To check compliance with the concept, the XAMS Security Architect includes extensive inspection tools. These cover the rules formulated in the concept and are suitable for measuring the extent to which the reality in the system meets the requirements formulated in the concept.

The marketing mix model is suitable for creating a marketing concept. This is usually divided into four pillars - the four Ps. These are Product, Price, Place and Promotion. In the case of services, this is often accompanied by the aspect of personnel policy. Although the marketing mix model is aimed at the external distribution of products and services, aspects of it can also be applied to an internal marketing of the SAP basis. For the design of the respective areas of the marketing mix, it is recommended to use a guide to develop a marketing concept. STEP 1: DEFINITION OF PERFORMANCE This step deals with the description of the services to be offered. Similarly, this step provides a categorisation of the type of service. These include, for example, the levels of secondary or primary service. With respect to the SAP basis, this step is concerned with product portfolio analysis and the creation of IT products and a product catalogue. STEP 2: OWN RESOURCES Subsequently, a determination of one's resources takes place. That is, it identifies the resources that are available and that can be used and the resources that need to be developed. Resources are people, objects, systems, knowledge, and funds. For the SAP basis, this step is an inventory. STEP 3: DETERMINATION OF THE OBJECTIVES The mission and vision of service providers will be determined in the framework of the setting of the objectives. It also sets measurable targets for the next three years.
You can reduce the Queue selection. To do this, select the Support Package that should be the last in the queue. After that, the queue is recalculated. You can also start the recalculation explicitly with Queue. Note that you can only select Support Packages that are part of the software component you have selected (the mouse cursor will change its appearance accordingly). The support packages associated with the calculated queue are green. The highest support package of the previously selected software component is additionally marked with a green tick. The support packages that are no longer part of the queue are still visible in the list and can be selected again. If you want to set the queue for another software component, select New Component. Result You have defined a queue. Now insert the support packages in the queue [page 20]. Rules for the Queue The following rules apply to creating a Queue: If it is an FCS system, the first step is an FCS Support Package. If it is missing from the queue, it cannot be defined. Instead, you will receive an error message telling you the name of the missing FCS Support Package. You cannot insert an FCS support package in a non-FCS system (official state of delivery). Support packages for a selected component are queued in order. If support packages in the queue have connections to support packages of another component (further predecessor relationship, required CRT), the queue will be extended by additional support packages until all predecessor relationships are fulfilled. Note that the SAP Patch Manager takes into account the configuration of your SAP system and only adds support packages to the queue that can be inserted into your system.
