The Other Cloud Analytics Challenge - Broadcasting

In a recent post, we showed use cases demonstrating How Live Connectivity Is Essential to Analytics Productivity. Data enables analysts to analyze, but their next challenge is communicating their insights to the right people at the right time and in the right format.

APOS Publisher for Cloud makes this communication possible with:

  • Personalized Distribution
  • Strategic Timing
  • Tailored Formats
  • Scalability
  • Secure Collaboration
  • Dynamic Flexibility

Here are some use cases that demonstrate how SAP Analytics Cloud users are rising to the challenge with APOS Publisher for Cloud.

AGC Glass Europe

AGC Glass Europe produces, processes and distributes flat glass for the construction industry (external glazing and interior decoration), the automotive industry (OEM and replacement glass) and various other sectors (transport, solar power and high-tech applications). It is the European branch of AGC, the world’s leading producer of flat glass. It has over 100 sites throughout Europe, from Spain to Russia, and employs around 15,500 employees.

AGC’s ability to supply its market efficiently is dependent on the timely return of the reusable racks they use to ship their products. These racks are highly specialized and costly to produce, and AGC must optimize their use to prevent delivery delays. AGC uses SAP BusinessObjects as their BI and reporting engine. They needed to automate the bulk sending of personalized email messages from SAP BusinessObjects to encourage the timely return of these racks.

Automotive Import, Distribution, Leasing

A major European company involved in automotive import, distribution, leasing and fleet management services needed timely distribution of SAP Analytics Cloud report content to key business stakeholders. Their information requirements included monthly distribution of reports to internal business users and externally to their partner network. The content of these reports must be filtered to ensure recipients receive only the data to which they are entitled, and that conditional business rules can govern aspects of how the distribution process is executed. Additionally, this organization needed strong visibility into the distribution process in order to monitor its success and to ensure delivery.
