There are three types of Adaptive Integration users:
Data analysts are the people who run tasks and work with the imported information in the Adaptive Suite. Data analysts may understand data structures and may not be CPAs. They will have knowledge of how to use Adaptive Suite, though this is not a prerequisite.
IT users/administrators are high-level users (frequently an administrator) who can set up and edit data sources, loaders, and tasks. IT users must be familiar with the Adaptive Suite and have a substantial understanding of databases and connectivity. These users are granted the data designer role in Integration for configuring data sources, loaders and tasks, then specifying the data to import. This role cannot access the Scripts tab within Integration > Data Designer.
Generally speaking, the IT users provide the initial set up of Adaptive Integration and then work in a maintenance mode, responding to requests for new tasks or different data sources from the data analysts.
