Use of the Security Audit Log
In addition to the optimisation potential of Security Automation, which I explained in more detail in my last post, the E-Learning division also offers numerous possibilities for automation. Since many companies are not yet making the most of these potentials due to a lack of knowledge about this particular form of knowledge transfer, I would like to address this in the following post. E-learning is also a form of automation that, if used correctly, brings many positive aspects. In the end, e-learning is a way to store know-how in a form that can be retrieved again and again. This means, of course, a certain initial effort for the creator, which nevertheless pays off more than if the quality is sufficient. What are the opportunities for a company to take advantage of e-learning? A company has several ways in which it can exploit and use the area of e-learning for itself. The fundamental question that should arise immediately after the decision to do so is whether the company creates the content itself or whether it relies on the content from external sources. Both have advantages and disadvantages, which I would like to explain in the following.
In general, SAP operations and all associated activities need to be further professionalised. This includes the documentation of key and mission critical processes and their verification for timeliness and validity. It is also necessary to record and describe the performance of the base by IT service management, as well as techniques such as a RACI matrix to identify and document the responsibilities of the SAP basis.
SAP offers a huge toolbox of different technologies to support business processes. The usefulness of their use is essentially determined by the task and its technical requirements. We have gained a lot of valuable experience in the following technologies, which we would like to make available to you.
The Technical Lead functions as the work package leader or sub-project manager within the SAP basis when the project is the focus of the SAP basis. The Technical Lead will become more important in the future as the SAP basis acts as a technology consultant and more projects and project activities are expected in the future. This role must be filled more and more often. Due to the increased demands, this role and the associated activities must be professionalised through training and further training.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
Public cloud environments such as Azure and AWS provide a layer of abstraction that eliminates the difficult task of maintaining hardware that was required with SAP on-premises.
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
The first project meeting took place within the framework of the DSAG Annual Congress in Bremen in 2015.
