INCENTIVES TO CREATE NEW ROLES
However, it is not correct to refer to the SAP NetWeaver and SAP HANA platforms as SAP Basis. Both components are only parts of an SAP Basis architecture (see Structure of SAP Basis).
ABAP is therefore the tool of the trade for SAP developers. ABAP programs are executed on an SAP NetWeaver application server, which in turn is operated by SAP Basis employees.
SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis: www.sap-corner.de.

The role of the SME describes an expert in a particular field, such as SME databases or SME-SAP-HANA, in the context of SAP products and is gaining in importance due to new technologies and thematic areas. The role of the SME thus corresponds to an expert role in the technology environment. It has a good network within the IT departments and, if necessary, to other business units within the company. In order to carry out its activities, it is necessary to have already acquired practical experience in the operation of its thematic focus. Expert tools are also used to fulfil his task. Through the exact definition of disciplines, the SME assumes the informally many tasks of the traditional SAP basis administrator and also new disciplines in the course of new technologies. In addition to the existing features, there will be in the future such as SME-Cloud, SME-SAP-HANA/Databases, SME-Supplier-Management, SME-Security, SME-Compliance, SME-Landscape-Virtualisation-Management (SME-Landscape-Virtualisation-Management) and SMESolution-Manager. SME-Cloud is in contact with the global cloud manager (if it exists in the company). In addition, an expression SME-Security is in contact or reported to the global corporate security sector. An expression SME-Supplier-Relationship-Management or Supplier-Management is orientated both internally (coordination with other departments) and externally (coordination and communication with suppliers). The SME cloud is a special feature of SME Supplier Management.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
