SAP BI System Restore Best Practice

Recently, a customer reached out to our Technical Support people for help, because something with their SAP BusinessObjects database change had gone terribly wrong. They had lost their administrator account. They needed to restore their system, and the organization’s trust in their system.

Our Support team suggested they use APOS Storage Center to move their content from the now crippled existing system to a newly built system. APOS Storage Center automates the archive 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.
