A high sense of responsibility
These are your tasks as SAP Basis Administrator:
The database layer is where all of a company's data is stored. In essence, it consists of a database management system (DBMS for short) and the data itself.
All of the above tasks have been part of SAP Basis Administration for decades. However, SAP software has changed a lot since the introduction of HANA in 2010, and with that, the SAP system administrator's job has changed as well. Here are some of the key differences:
Support of SAP modules
Basically, an SAP Basis administrator is responsible for installing, configuring, managing, maintaining and servicing all technical components of an SAP system landscape. This includes activities such as application setup, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
Tasks such as the update of components, the insertion of security updates or monitoring should be further automated. It is recommended to use only one automation tool (SAP Solution Manager or SAP LVM). Custom solutions and scripts should not be used or replaced with standard tools if possible, because otherwise different script languages and script versions will have to be managed, resulting in a lot of maintenance. Standardised SAP scripts are welcome here. A useful definition of thresholds, for example on the basis of historical system behaviour, must also be defined for monitoring.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
They are therefore largely excluded from operational operations.
This is a reconciliation process between the SAP basis, other IT departments and, if necessary, the business areas concerned.
