Since SAP is an application used in almost all industries, an auditor will also have to inspect and test all the SAP systems, servers, routers, workstations, and networking equipment. For any such SAP system, SAP ProAdvisors will have to check the availability of various drivers, configure and upgrade them, troubleshoot, analyse, and provide recommendations on the maintenance and security of SAP appliances. In addition to this, he will have to help the enterprise to determine which service packs are suitable to ensure that the application continues to deliver optimum results.

It is not just the application servers and routing devices that need attention when conducting an audit of SAP. SAP management will also have to look into the hardware and software to determine whether there is a problem with the devices or not.

The activities involved in SAP maintenance and servicing are also important in determining the efficiency of the operations. The data provided by the audit team should provide information on the amount of time spent on each activity and the results of each activity. This will help the enterprise to evaluate and measure its services and determine where improvements can be made.

Another aspect is the availability of IT staff. These professionals can help provide solutions and help in the implementation of improvements. When there are minimal staff resources available to provide IT services, this can affect the process and result in more time and money spent. To avoid this problem, the company can hire personnel who have expertise in deploying SAP applications. These professionals will also help in training the other employees to use the software effectively.

This process requires collecting and analysing data, formulating an effective action plan, engaging the services of experts and engaging the staff. These activities will contribute to a better utilisation of the company’s capital and reduce costs and risks associated with SAP.
