      That discount on SAP education is a good deal. Thanks for mentioning! Now I hope I can find some folks from SAP Education there at TechEd who can give me an ETA on a response to my inquiry, some weeks ago, concerning education opportunities on SolMan security. Since SAP has held steadfast on the decision to make no attempt to standardize the authorization concept of ABAP based solutions, every solution needs its own security training offering, and I have yet to find any such offering when I search the SAP Education site.

      Hi Gretchen,

      I am part of the Global Education Portfolio Team and I have asked my colleague to provide some input to your question - have a look and let me know if you would like further clarification.  I can also put you in touch with an expert in the North American Education team that you can speak to if needed.

      Here is my colleague's feedback:

      SAP Solution Manager curriculum doesn’t contain a dedicated course on Security but security topics are embedded in different courses.

      We would need to know more about your expectations so that we can guide you and designate if a training course could support.

      In the education portfolio, we have ADM9* courses which are dedicated to NetWeaver system security such as “ABAP AS Authorization Concept”, “Secure SAP System Management” or “SAP NetWeaver AS – Security”

      ABAP Authorization concept course also apply to SAP Solution Manager. For more specific SAP Solution Manager Authorization and Roles are covered in SM100 course.

      If you are looking for ABAP security programming, some topics are covered in E2E500 (such code inspector)

      I hope this helps further.

      Yes, I am aware that SAP embeds a soupçon of security topics in the system administration training courses for some solutions. I attended one such course a few years ago for the Enterprise Portal. In my estimate it was a lot of time and money spent for barely 1/2 day of security topics. I am not a programmer and do not plan to attend a course on secure programming. What I was hoping to find was a course on security for all the different functions within SolMan so that we can quit assigning SAP_ALL to Basis people. After doing SAP Security these past 14 years, I am fairly well versed in the ABAP authorization concept; I am also quite aware that this concept is not standardized across the various ABAP based solutions, and that SAP has no intention of even working towards standardization. Thus all the various flavors, if you will, of ABAP authorization concept which contribute to increased TCO, support costs and risks. It is very disappointing that SAP cannot at least make an effort to mitigate the downside of this strategy by offering training.

      It was suggested to me by an SAP employee who shall remain nameless that I should investigate training offerings from SAP partners. Having attended many SAP partner sessions at ASUG and SAPPHIRE over the years, my experience is that partner offerings tend to be from their perspective and their methodology, which is fine if you want to learn their way of doing things. I just would have hoped that SAP could find a way to offer security admin people their own training. If security is embedded within various courses, why can't it be pulled out and made part of a security mini series training offering? If it is not cost effective to offer it in a classroom setting, it could be a virtual training offering. That would be my suggestion.

      Hi Gretchen,

      thanks for expanding on what you are looking for. It sounds good and makes sense to me but then I am not really the expert here. Therefore, I have asked my colleague who deals with this topic area to respond to you shortly.
