What is SAP BASIS?
Basis is a set of programs and tools that act as an interface with Database, Operating system, Communication protocols and business applications (such as FI, CO, MM, etc). Full form of BASIS is "Business Application Software Integrated solution".
SAP BASIS administrators not only make sure all SAP components & applications can communicate with each other, but do so with no end user or backend processing performance degradation. Issues continuously crop up in any technical layer of a SAP landscape and it’s up to SAP Basis support to keep the enterprise cloud, database and application healthy. Basis administrators install updates, monitor the system for errors and tweak SAP to be faster and more reliable.
What is an SAP BASIS Administrator: Basics
SAP BASIS support administrators are responsible for keeping entire SAP environments stable, secure, and meeting the needs of users. An SAP Basis administrator needs to check system logs daily, and differentiate between minor glitches and serious problems. (Develop career with SAP BASIS training by experts).
For example, SAP uses locks to temporarily restrict access to business objects while they’re being changed. When a lock fails to release, the SAP Basis admin can just manually release it. However, if this keeps happening, it can indicate a more serious problem in app configuration, job scheduling, sizing, or some other area. The SAP Basis administrator needs to find and fix the root cause before the problem leads to performance degradation.
SAP BASIS Administrator Responsibilities
In addition to monitoring, analyzing and troubleshooting SAP Basis, the admin has a wide range of duties:
Architecting the Environment: SAP Basis admins identify resources (such as personnel, hardware and/or software) that are needed for successful installations and upgrades, as well as to keep up with future use patterns.
Implementing Best Practices: Business and Basis tasks intersect in complex ways that can affect the way your organization runs. Basis staff streamline these tasks to promote efficiency and ease of use.
User administration: Users are given roles in SAP corresponding to job functions. An SAP Basis administrator fulfills user and role management requests, such as provisioning roles to new hires, rescinding permissions when workers leave, and spotting SOD conflicts between roles.
Managing SAP Transports: SAP transports (i.e. updates) need to be carefully tested before they’re migrated to production. Admins must review transport requests, configure and test transports, gather signatures and install transports in the correct order.
Scheduling Background Jobs: SAP background jobs are what they sound like routine processes that run in the background. An SAP Basis administrator schedules and runs these jobs during times of low demand, so that they don’t overburden system resources.
SAP Tuning: The best SAP administrators spend more time on performance tuning than troubleshooting. By analyzing system performance, user demand and other factors, an SAP administrator can ensure consistent performance and avoid the need for heroics.
Business experts often take the technical lead in SAP upgrades and migrations. When a business upgrades to an SAP HANA cloud (SAP HANA Training by professionals from SAP Trainings Online) or migrates to new SAP hosting provider, business doesn’t stop. The business keeps generating new data during the migration, which in turn, needs to be migrated as well. In addition, the business may decide to change the database and/or O.S. platform on the newly migrated system, adding extreme complexity. It’s incredibly intricate, and can take several months for a large organization. Without a highly-qualified SAP Basis team, the project can run into costly delays, or fail entirely.
