An SAP administrator has the task of controlling a company's SAP system and ensuring its proper functioning. He/she maintains and monitors SAP applications and is also responsible for their development.
By establishing a new role concept and building new roles, the SAP basis has the skills necessary to support new tasks and topics as well as to operate new technology and service forms. The relevant roles are listed below.

The Open Innovation Model approach comes into play in the idea creation, evaluation and selection phase, which can also be divided into the three eponymous sub-steps. In a closed innovation model, innovation is created only from the company itself. The Open Innovation Model allows for different sources of idea generation. So it is about opening up the innovation process, as shown in Figure 2, which was presented earlier. The figure shows the company boundaries through the dotted lines and the ideas that can be generated both within and outside the company. The Open Innovation approach can be divided into the three core processes of the Outside-In process, Inside-Out process and Coupled process. The Outside-In process involves knowledge from external sources in idea generation. This happens, for example, through cooperation with companies, suppliers or even customers. The inside-out process supports development, commercialisation, and deployment to markets outside of the organisation itself if there is little chance of success in implementing the idea internally. The Coupled process links the two strategies mentioned above. This is an attempt to generate cooperation successes through joint development and subsequent commercialisation in networks. In terms of the SAP basis, the Outside-In process plays an essential role in generating ideas within the framework of the Open Innovation approach.
The two main tasks of this function are: Deleting profiles including user assignments if no matching role exists. Deleting assignments between users and roles if either the user or the role does not exist.
