How to protect the BI teams from doing non-BI work?

We often find ourselves in situations where the BI teams, because of the tools we use and skills we poses in dealing with data, are misused by other departments to carry out non-BI work. I would like to know how companies deal with these situations? Examples of non-BI work 1) Migrate data from old OLTP application to a new OLTP system 2) Create data extracts to be provided to other systems, example billing system or to be provided to B2B customers Because of the tight deadlines on the non-BI work these tasks get pushed on to the BI teams and the BI work is stalled. The non-BI task is also important but for the BI team it is a misfit.
