APOS Publisher for Cloud Use Case – Timely Report Distribution to SAC & Non-SAC Recipients

Using APOS Publisher for Cloud for Timely,
Personalized Internal & External Report Distribution

Timely Report Distribution to SAC & Non-SAC Recipients

A major European company involved in automotive import, distribution, leasing and fleet management services needed timely distribution of SAP Analytics Cloud report content to key business stakeholders. Their information requirements included monthly distribution of reports to internal business users and externally to their partner network. The content of these reports must be filtered to ensure recipients receive only the data to which they are entitled, and that conditional business rules can govern aspects of how the distribution process is executed. Additionally, this organization needed strong visibility into the distribution process in order to monitor its success and to ensure delivery.

    Automation needed to send SAP Analytics Cloud reports to internal and external recipients, both SAC & non-SAC users, to ensure that they had current information.
  • Personalized, User-Specific SAC Reports
    Emails and attached PDFs sent to internal and external recipients needed to be personalized with appropriate details for each recipient.
