    hi karthik,

    Usually the roles and responsibilities depends on the structure of the Team,

    usually in general the consultant either will be in to development or in to support.


    it is core development area and here the roles will be depend on the different tools on which consultant is working like

    universe developer(IDT/UDT)

    report developer (WEBI/CRYSTAL reports)

    dashboard developer(design studio/xcelsuis)

    and general activities done by them

    -requirement gathering

    -developing and designing reports/dashboard as per the requirement

    -testing the reports

    -getting UAT from the business.

    -mapping the developed finalized to the portal.


    support will usually consists of day to day maintenance activities of the developed reports and projects.

    -maintenance of Bi launchpad & CMC

    -resolving the issues/incidence came from the business in the developed project and reports

    -all the admin activities and managing CMC(central management console)

    -maintenance and checking server and server groups

    -managing security profiles.

    -up gradations, migration activities related to the system.

    -managing folders,documents,reports,dashboards, lo connections, web services and universe in repositories.

    This is a very open ended question. Did Piyush's response help?

    Are you asking what tasks a BusinessObjects Administrator would normally need to carry out?
