To initiate a broadcast for a given bursting definition:

  • APOS Publisher for Cloud reaches out to SAP Analytics Cloud to assemble the dynamic content needed for the broadcast in the form of a SAC story and the data needed to populate the story.
  • The content is exported to the tailored formats specified for each individual in the bursting definition, such as PDF, or Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint or Word, or an image.
  • The exported content is then broadcast to the locations specified for each of these individuals, such as email, a network folder, or FTP.
