SAP Basis Administration Batch Control Job Control A large proportion of batch jobs run at night, while IT systems are available for dialog and online applications during the day. Meanwhile, web applications demand computer capacity around the clock. Even dialog systems are no longer in operation only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., but between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. or longer. The time window for administration tasks is increasingly shifting toward transaction processing. This leaves less and less time for mission-critical batches, which can lead to disruptions and terminations. Whereas batch processing used to be a mainframe domain, companies today usually have to control background processing in heterogeneous operating system environments and client-server applications. For this reason, cross-platform, integration-capable job schedulers that can respond to unplanned events are in demand.
In every company with an SAP system, there is someone who is responsible for the SAP Basis. This person ensures the trouble-free operation of the SAP system. He or she accompanies maintenance work and intervenes in special situations, such as poor performance. Even for companies that hand over the operation of the basis to an external service provider, there are often still tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.

Introducing secinfo and reginfo files into an existing system landscape is associated with risk and effort. As already indicated in the two options, the workload increases greatly as the system landscape grows.
Automation of processes In an IDM, IT business processes, creating, modifying and deleting a user are defined centrally by means of a unique set of rules. All the necessary steps are then completed using automated workflows. User administration no longer has to be administered separately for each system, but only in a single point of administration. Data Consistency Employee data is created only once in a leading system in an IDM architecture. All attached systems use this data in their user management on demand. In a change of department or a new activity, permissions are automatically adjusted. Security and Documentation In a centralised user administration, users can be locked down efficiently on all systems or access rights can be changed. The connection to the personnel process automatically initiates the change process as soon as the master record is adjusted in the Human Resources Department. Documentation solutions can also be used to archive all processes without any gaps. This creates transparency which also facilitates the detection of a functioning and secure authorisation concept during audit tests. Requirements for IDM systems People get electronic identity attributes describe the role of the person Quality requirements Reliability: Abuse prevention Readability: Documentation and logging Failover: Back-up systems in compliance with legal requirements Data Protection Act What should be taken into account in application processes? When implementing an IDM and also in the day-to-day operation of an IDM, there are certain things that should be taken into account when applying. I have summarised the most important points in the form of a checklist.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
For example, a bank with all its advantages and disadvantages.
SAP applications like FI, CO, PP etc can run and communicate with each other on different operating systems and databases using BASIS.
