Maintenance and transport of application and system modifications
Change and Release Management
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 Basis to an external service provider, there are often still tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.
How does a blockchain build consensus? Once you decide to send a payment to someone, you must use the Private Key to "sign" it (in German: signature). This means nothing other than that you specify another public address to which you want to send the money and confirm this transaction with your own private key. You don't have a central authority to send the information to, you're going to spread the information to all the other Miners around you. The miners then forward this information to other miners, who in turn do the same. This exponential wave of information reaches the entire network of the distributed community within a few milliseconds. Every time a miner receives a transaction, it checks that the transaction is actually correct. It checks which private key has signed, which public address the transaction should go to and whether the sender has enough "coins" for this transaction. What are consensus mechanisms? Any miner that solves a transaction through complex mathematical calculations is rewarded by the sender with a "fee" (transaction fee). How will it be decided which miner will receive the transaction fee? Because only one can get this reward. Also, what happens when you try a double spending by sending one transaction to one miner and then another transaction with the same money to another one millisecond later? These two could not yet exchange and thus information would be different in the network.
SYSTEM CHANGEABILITY AND CLIENT SETTINGS
In order to drive innovation in the company, it is necessary to establish a team or a few experts whose recognised role is to promote research projects and PoCs, to continuously train themselves in this regard, to develop innovation proposals and to bring them into the committees. They are therefore largely excluded from operational operations. CONSTRUCTION OF A TEST LABORATORY In addition to resources, it is also necessary to create the framework conditions for the implementation of the research and pilot projects. To this end, it is recommended to set up a test laboratory with as few restrictions as possible on company standards. These are often so massive that a quick and effective implementation of pilot projects is severely hindered or completely prevented.
Within this step, a pricing strategy is chosen. The strategy chosen must be based on the value for money. The selection shall also be justified. The price of the service will continue to be determined, as will formal decisions on clearing models and discounts. This step is less important for the SAP basis. While it is necessary to set a price for the IT products to be defined in terms of appreciation and offsetting, it does not require an elaborate pricing system. STEP 8: MARKET COMMUNICATION The step of market communication describes the way in which the respective service is advertised and how it is to be communicated with customers in this regard. It's about the communication tools that are planned, which describe the place of communication, the communication tools that describe what to advertise, and the content. These are usually derived from the target group to be applied for. For the SAP basis, the content is an essential feature of the market communication. That is, depending on the target group, information must be created and communicated. STEP 9: INTERNAL COMMUNICATION Internal communication describes how the above-mentioned aspects can also be successfully communicated internally, i.e. in the direction of one's employees.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
The tasks of a company's own SAP Basis department are currently undergoing enormous change, as SAP is also increasingly relying on cloud services.
We can say that Basis is the operating system for SAP applications and ABAP.
