Conclusion and outlook
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.
SAP Basis ensures smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is a kind of operating system of the R/3 system or SAP ERP. It includes three layers: database, application and presentation. In addition, Basis includes many SAP middleware programs and administration tools. With Basis SAP applications can be used compatible and independent of operating system and database and can be enriched with the necessary data.
The implementation of a cross-sectional function will promote and safeguard the operation of the SAP systems that form the backbone of the company. By coordinating the SAP basis with other IT departments, the optimisation is always done in the overall context of the company or the IT organisation. Eliminating the separation of SAP and non-SAP topics in areas where it is considered useful will lead to expert groups and synergy effects through centralisation.
