Within SAP R/3 Enterprise, the SAP Basis Plug-In is a prerequisite for you to use the SAP R/3 Plug-In. SAP Basis Plug-In and SAP R/3 Plug-In must always have the same release level, for example PI 2004.1 and PI Basis 2004.1. If you plan to upgrade SAP R/3 Plug-In within SAP R/3 Enterprise, you must also upgrade SAP Basis Plug-In. As of SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1, the release levels of the two plug-ins no longer need to correspond. However, the SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package for PI 2004.1, which contains new interfaces, still requires a specific SAP Basis Plug-In. For example, SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package 10 for SAP Plug-In 2004.1 requires SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1.
Avantra recently became available in the Google Cloud Marketplace. It is worth mentioning here that we have fully containerized the deployment of Avantra here, so each component runs in a separate container. For the database, we use Cloud SQL.

If regulations for the standardisation of SAP systems or tasks and procedures are in place, they must also be consistently complied with and their compliance must also be verified. In case of non-compliance, for example due to project influences or technological problems, the exception must be returned to the standard in a timely manner. Resources must be made available for this.
The task of SAP Basis is to ensure trouble-free, interoperable and portable (mobile) operation of SAP systems in the company. Interoperable means that independent and heterogeneous IT systems can work together.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
SAP systems can be found in the areas of accounting, cost accounting, activity-based costing and controlling.
This is caused by customer-specific developments in the system.
