    Hello Guys,

    What is a Difference between System Admin and Analytics Admin ?

    Can you clarify where you're seeing these terms to make sure I'm giving you the right answer? I think of these as generic terms describing roles of Maximo administrators but if you've seen this as specific references somewhere, that would be helpful. 

    Analytics in Maximo is typically focused on reports (BIRT, Cognos, or third-party utilities like Power BI), start center (KPIs, result sets, etc.), or sometimes even just ad-hoc query analysis as needed. 

    System admin is focused on the overall needs of the Maximo system. In some shops they may be responsible for everything including patching the environment (middleware & Maximo) and the Analytics tasks. In larger shops they may be focused purely on the front-end configuration tasks (security, database configuration changes, application changes, etc.) to meet the requirements of the business.

    I agree with Steven, it is hard to provide definition without context.  In Maximo Application Suite? In Maximo EAM with other Analytics platforms?  Which platforms? One might define an Analytics administrator as the person who administers the CP4D platform included with Maximo Application Suite.  But I am assuming that is what you might mean given a) this is a Maximo forum and b) Maximo Application Suite is "all the rage".  But I am assuming, and that can put me in a bad place.  So yes, please help us understand your context.
