    HI Gabriel

    BASIS is the administration of SAP system, BASIS team will be responsible for installation, maintenance, transport, authorizations in the SAP system.Taking care of the Server in all the situation,applying Support Packages, patches,fixes, Monotioring the Jobs.Participate in requirements gathering, assessment, design, configuration and testing activities for SAP security and other issues

    XI is also a middleware.

    The work of XI Basis starts from installation of XI server and it inculdes many system related things such as Installing Adapter framework, Maintaining RFC connections, Roles and Authorization, Updating Patches etc....

    Check this link on Management of XI and go through it completely. You will ahve clear idea about the role performed by XI Administrator or XI Basis:

    Hi,

    >>>whether we have to acquire knowlege to explore BASIS for XI

    if we want to be good XI developers than we need some BASIS knowledge

    (to be able to trace and corrcect errors which in most cases '

    are due to BASIS config - timeouts, sxmb_adm, SLD, Visual Admin, etc.)

    Regards,

    Hi;

    It is always good for a XI developer to have some knowledge of BASIS ,as it helps to have a better clearity on problem faced .

    BASIS is basically the server installation and maintainence part.

      My background before getting into XI was I did one year Basis and did the XI Installations for my previous employer, then did two years XI Development with them. I don't have a programming background but am keen to learn.

      I have been working as a dedicated XI Consultant for three months now.

    Hi,

    whether we have to acquire knowlege to explore BASIS for XI

    As mentioned by Michal, to some extent it is required and if you can put your efforts to focus more then you can choose the option of XI-Technology Consultant.
