Hybrid BI & Analytics Publishing - Better Time to Value

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

SAP BusinessObjects is renowned as a superior reporting engine, with self-serve Web Intelligence and pixel-perfect Crystal Reports. APOS Publisher has long been used as a means of personalized bursting and distribution of those reports widely and securely, and creating documents of record from them.

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

Bursting uses automated, dynamic, data-driven processes to push personalized analytics content out to the appropriate people at the appropriate time in appropriate formats and to appropriate destinations. Bursting ensures that your people get the timely information they need (and only the information they need) to excel in their work. Bursting enables scenarios in which personalized analytics information can be consumed offline in the formats most useful to the recipients. Bursting removes barriers to connection and simplifies the user experience: users do not need power-user expertise in analytics to get the information they need when they need it.

Bursting is low maintenance, because it is data driven. You can "set it and forget it," because as the data driving the processes changes, the bursting process adjusts automatically. Bursting accomplishes far more than scheduling by serving personalized tranches of information. Scheduling pushes information to a static list of users, and scheduling changes are labor- and time-intensive. Achieving bursting's dynamic flexibility would be prohibitively labor- and time-intensive if attempted with scheduling.

Bursting is doubly liberating: it relieves IT of labor-intensive processes, and it relieves users of the need to search for information.
