In many organizations it is common for server administration to be the responsibility of some specific area (eg datacenter). So direct access to these servers is often not allowed.
To perform SDM administration, for some activities, the access to the server is necessary: Eg: execution of PDM commands, execution of WebScreenPainter (Client WSP does not run in HA), access to logs, etc.
So I propose to create a kind of "Admin Center" that will allow application administrators (SDM) to perform administrative tasks without necessarily accessing the server, like "Oracle Enterprise Manager".
Thus the responsabilities could be better segmented and managed (server and application).
