    Could you please help me with the following:

    1- What is access maintenance, transport changes and batch scheduling in SAP or any system.
    I cannot imagine them from practical area. Could you please provide a real life example of each.

    2- I have an issue with understanding the batch scheduling ? in real life i only saw it for backups. Any other examples in SAP.  My issue is what are the most common examples for batch scheduling, usually there is associated generic account with batch scheduling, can you explain why we need a generic account for batch scheduling ?
    Any also, is batch scheduling done via the application itself (in SAP for example) or you have a specific interface where you need to link it to the application in order to perform the batch processing.

    3- What are T-codes in SAP, as IT auditor what should and really should interest me in.

    Thanks for your help folks in advance.

    Your questions are very broad and there's no simple way to answer those, but if you could get hold of a SAP BASIS book, that would be useful

    Marat, didn't you already post questions about SAP?

    I believe the materials that were provided in people's responses in that other post would have answered your questions here about SAP. No?

    SAP best practices

    Maybe I am misunderstanding your question here?
