Role of a Architect in SAP ABAP or SAP BI projects.

Given that SAP modules are built, and managed by SAP itself.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Primary responsibility is around serving as the conduit between businesses and technology. In general, they oversee all aspects of a systems solution and ensure that implementation and supporting processes are appropriate for each client. Architects must design and implement the process in stages, to ensure a smooth transition and ensure that business needs are met in areas such as real-time information, data feeds, integration with legacy systems, etc. They must also be able to explain the implementation to business partners in business terms and understand business requirements and translate them back to the technical team. Their role is much more strategic than an ABAPer or basic BI consultant.
