What are the areas when working with SAP systems?
Capacity must be built to provide the necessary space for pilot and research projects and to meet the increased demands. This can be done, among other things, by increasing the previous resources or/ and by measures of standardisation & automation as well as "cloudability", outsourcing & outtasking.
From a purely technical point of view, each generated authorization role contains a profile from which a user receives the actual authorization objects and authorization characteristics. If this profile is outdated or not assigned at all, the user will not have all the authorization objects contained in the authorization role. Incidentally, the problem arises particularly frequently after role transports: If an authorization role is changed in the development system and then transported to the production system, the current profile is not automatically assigned to the users with the respective role. A user comparison must therefore be performed here.
On the one hand, staff clerks (or other personnel officials) should be able to carry out their important work. On the other hand, the protection of personal data of one's own employees is one of the most important tasks of the authorisation system. Any mistake in this area can cause the company's data protection officers to wring their hands over their heads. For this reason, tools are currently being developed to provide security and visibility in the HR permissions area. The basic idea is a clear overview that shows which data certain users in the SAP system can access. Based on this, automatic checks can be developed, which run in the background and regularly check whether critical gaps have been created by changes to the permissions in the HR area. The use of such a tool can create more security, especially in the HR authorisation environment. In addition, the possibility of the overview function is very pleasant and relieving for all involved.

Therefore, it is recommended to start thinking about how your company is prepared for security automation. If you are interested in setting up and preparing a company outside the security area, I can recommend the book 'Consulting Y' by Ferdinando Piumelli (Managing Director of mindsquare GmbH). In this book, Mr. Piumelli describes his observations and experiences of digital transformation as a strategy consultant for leading DAX30 companies. In doing so, he is focusing on the near future, which, in the spirit of the digital revolution, will have a major impact on the world's large companies and economy.
Examples of names are: SAP Cross-Application, SAP Innovation & Technology, SAP Services & Innovation, SAP Operations & Innovation or SAP Service Provider & Business Innovator. DESCRIPTION OF OWN PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE PORTFOLIO In order to be consulted by upstream or downstream entities, it is necessary to provide a detailed and understandable description of your service portfolio. This means that it can be explicitly stated in which cases the SAP basis needs to be contacted and involved in order to make the necessary decisions and not jeopardise a project or company success. In addition to the range of tasks covered by the SAP basis, it is also necessary to specify for which tasks and topics the SAP basis is not responsible. This recommendation is to be considered as universal and applies to all IT departments in order to clearly distinguish them and document the performance of their own IT organisation. INTERNAL MARKETING DESIGN AND ESTABLISH Building on the recommendation [A3], it is recommended to design and establish an internal marketing. The aim is to provide a transparent picture of the activities carried out in terms of the company's success and which are not visible to everyone.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
