SAP BI & Analytics – Distribution Challenges

Recently, I wrote about leveraging the value of your SAP BusinessObjects data modelling to achieve better time to value with your SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP S/4HANA or SAP HANA projects. Now I’d like to look at challenges you may experience in distributing your SAP Analytics Cloud content.

Discovering and visualizing your insights is one thing, but sharing them is quite another.

SAP Analytics Cloud is achieving new heights in data discovery and visualization. APOS Publisher for Cloud enables personalized bursting and distribution of your stories widely and securely, and creation of documents of record from them.
Bursting is a push process that gets the right content to the right people at the right time and in the right format.

Why is bursting important? Bursting:

  • Automates secure information delivery with dynamic, data-driven processes
  • Adjusts automatically when the data driving the bursting processes changes
  • Personalizes information distribution
  • Delivers information in a timely manner
  • Enables conditional bursting based on KPIs and pre-defined thresholds
  • Removes barriers to connection and simplifies the user experience
  • Enables offline consumption of information
  • Liberates IT from labor-intensive processes
  • Liberates users from the need for analytics expertise
  • Provides far greater flexibility than scheduling

See how the bursting and distribution story has grown over time:
