SAP BusinessObjects Report Bursting
APOS Publisher enables the construction and seamless execution of complex bursting scenarios, serving "slices" of information to information consumers across the enterprise. A "slice" is a portion of data that conforms to specified permissions. Slices essentially group information by user functions, using system information to deliver data personalization. The entire publishing process is data-driven.

SAP BusinessObjects Report Distribution
APOS Publisher's post-processing services create metadata for each document created during the bursting process and send it with the distributed content, thus permitting smart integration with other applications.
This post-processing power appeals to customers with complex distribution requirements, including numerous destinations.
APOS Publisher can convert reports to multiple formats, zip them with passwords, and apply encryption to PDFs.
BI publishing is not just a means of delivering reports to information consumers. It is also a means of integrating BI information with other enterprise information technologies such as content management systems.
Your content management and BI systems don't have to be competitors. In many organizations, content management is more central to operational workflows than BI, but BI can provide a layer of in-depth and managerial information to those formal workflows.
One of the greatest benefits of content management is its thorough indexing of content, which gives the content management system an extremely powerful search capability. The BI system, on the other hand, can provide in-depth information to support numerous themes and workflows within the CMS.
APOS Publisher distributes document instances with additional metadata to integrate better with the CMS, and bridge the gap between these enterprise information solutions.

SAP BusinessObjects Report Consolidation
APOS Publisher lets you build packages of reports for individual information consumers, so that they receive a single consolidated report, rather than a series of disconnected reports. This consolidation simplifies the management and use of reports by the information consumer. The packaged reports are often hyperlinked to each other for supplementary or drill-down information.
