Right-Sizing SAP BusinessObjects

In a recent webinar (available on-demand), we discussed achieving better time to value in your Hybrid BI and analytics deployments – what you need to know and do to ensure a smooth rollout of cloud-based analytics solutions such as SAP Analytics Cloud while maintaining an on-premise business intelligence system such as SAP BusinessObjects.

As a part of that discussion, we looked at the concept of right-sizing your SAP BusinessObjects deployment to meet your ongoing business intelligence reporting needs. In an upcoming webinar, we will delve into this topic more deeply to discuss how APOS can help you achieve your right-sizing objectives.

Right-sizing requires a strategic approach, because you need to consider how you can leverage your BI system for faster time to value with your Cloud deployment, and crippling your ability to leverage your BI system to achieve better Cloud time to value is counter productive. You need to reduce your on-premise BI footprint to apply additional resources to your Cloud deployment, while maintaining enough of that BI system to meet your ongoing reporting needs.

Why is your SAP BusinessObjects system so important to your SAP Analytics Cloud deployment? Your BI system has grown with your business, and at this moment represents your best knowledge about what exactly your business is. While that all-encompassing vision may fade with the adoption of a new platform, it is in your best interest to leverage it now as a means of building that knowledge framework on the new platform. The environments are radically different, but the resources they use are generally the same or similar, and even when they are not you can still leverage the time and work that has gone into your BI system to build Analytics content rapidly and efficiently.

Watch this clip from the earlier webinar for an outline of right-sizing:

APOS Insight & APOS Storage Center Will Help

You may have experienced decades of growth in your SAP BusinessObjects system, but now the time has come to separate the wheat from the chaff – to determine: what stays and what goes; who owns what stays, and where the other content goes. Here are a couple of APOS products that will help you:

  • How do you come to a full understanding of the content you have in your SAP BusinessObjects system?
    APOS Insight gives you detailed system metadata & monitoring — the knowledge you need for effective SAP BI system management. It provides the means to maintain the integrity and efficiency of your SAP BusinessObjects environment and infrastructure.
  • How can you safeguard your SAP BusinessObjects content to ensure it is there for audit and regulatory purposes, while right-sizing your deployment to meet your ongoing needs?
    APOS Storage Center automates the archive and restore functions in your SAP BusinessObjects deployment, helping you to manage the document lifecycle, safeguard data privacy, and achieve regulatory compliance. It features automated and rules-based backup, archive, partial restoration of selected documents, automated system cleanup, versioning, promotion and system replication.
