    Hi Samy,

    Technical people are expected to have some basic functional knowledge. But if they really have very good functional knowledge in 1 area then they are generally called "Techno-functional". Usually people work on a specific Application area in BW like say FI, MM, PP , etc called functional . BW functional would not do any development but they are rather in charge of overseeing whether the specific application functionality is implemented or not. They rather look for the functionality and not for the underlying code.

    People working across application areas called technical. They are the ones who do all the development like creating BW objects and activating them.

    Also refer this thread:

    Advantage of Being Techno-Functional

    Hi Kumaresh,

    In SAP, the ABAPer is called as Technical Consultant because he takes care of the Code Development.Functional Consultant is the person who takes care of the config changes.He is the person who knows the functionality(Functional/Domain Knowledge) of that module like MM Consultant, FI Consultant etc.

    Techno-Functional Consultant means the person is capable of having both roles i.e. Technical Consultant role and Functional Consultant role.He is aware of both sides which means he plays two roles. He does the config changes as well as writes the code.

    Hope this helps.

    Please reward if useful.

    Thanks,

    Srinivasa
