BAM_AN packages not executing by SQL jobs


I recently hit an issue with the BAM_AN packages executed through a SQL job  failing with the following message.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

at…. UpdateDataSourceAndGetAnnotation(String cubeName, String asServerName, String asDatabaseName, String ssServername, String ssDatabaseName)  

The reason was the account under which my SQL jobs were running did not have access to the Analysis Services. Solution was to right click on the root node –> properties and add the account under the security tab and it started working.
