I would like to know where others have typically aligned the BASIS function within their organizations. At my company we are looking to make an optimal fit for BASIS within the IT division and would like to get input from others who have already addressed this issue. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In an organization I was performing SAP / Informix DBA duties, we had the following types of skillsets represented within the group and two people to fill each position:

1. Basis Administrators,
2. Database Administrators,
3. System Administrators.

For SAP Security and for the Storage Manager Administrator positions, only 1 person was in each of these positions. Their skillsets were cross-trained and handled by either the Basis Administrators or the Database Administrators during their absences.

Hope this helps.

    In our organization, Basis is part of IT. It falls under our Infrastructure group.

    In our organization the BASIS function is definitely part of the IT structure. I agree with another posting I saw. It would be equivalent to the DBA functionality. However I find that personnel in any BASIS group should be sensitive to the operational side. Sometimes a BASIS group will install the latest support packs and not realize what it has done to some custom programming. Just an FYI.
