Database layer (relational database management system)
STMS Transport Management System
SAP Basis refers to the IT underlying the SAP system. It includes various middleware programs and tools and is responsible for the smooth operation of the SAP system.
Another way to secure your gateway using the SAP standard is to encrypt communication using Secure Network Communication (SNC). In the case of unprotected data communication paths between different client and server components of the SAP system that use the SAP protocol RFC or DIAG, the data exchange takes place in plain text and there is a risk that this can be read. With the help of SNC, you can create end-to-end encryption (E2EE), which can be used to secure communication between two components, such as between the application server and SAP GUI. In addition, SNC encryption provides the basis for using SAP Single Sign-On (SSO) as a security solution, which significantly reduces the internal effort of password management.

People tend to forget how important this element of the architecture is. The structure associated with it often proves to be especially important for companies that want to implement the SAP system for the first time.
SAP Basis is the core component of any SAP infrastructure. Both in older versions such as R/3 and the current S/4HANA. It ensures that the necessary services and foundations are provided for the SAP system and all applications. The biggest advantage of an SAP environment over specialized tools - its variability - also makes for great complexity.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
When creating the message texts in the "SCWN" message class, it is normal that after saving the changes several times (as many times as messages have been created) the question about the transport order must be confirmed.
Errors do less damage, are easier to detect and fix, and are less likely to impact system performance and availability before they are fixed.
