Restricting authorization for BW Consultants

We have provided the authorization to BW consultants to perform the administration and support task in BW Production system. As per our scenario, Basis team is not completely aware of the BW task as it requies BW skills.

So I wish to know is it correct to provide BW Consultants authorization in BW Production system or this task should be completely handled by Basis team. What should be the standard approach followed in other companies.

    Hi Sameer,

    If you have given Admin & Support tasks like RSA1, RSD1, reports administration,... its fine. These are BW tasks that BW consultants perform.

    Regards,

      Hi Sameer,

      Some one has to let them know that they are not system support activities that Basis handles and more over Basis usually doesnt have the required expertise on these tasks. Just like FICO, MM, SD...support team has access, BW support also should have. What they do is ETL activities using the platform.

      I havent seen any document from SAP defining roles and responsibilities for the systems. If you have the required training and knowledge, you can handle the tasks. Unless organizational or audit policies enforce you from doing multiple tasks that may lead to risk.

      Regards,

      Ajesh.
