APOS Insight

Knowledge Is Power -
SAP BI Metadata, Monitoring & More

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.

Metadata management, analysis, and system monitoring are critical to maintaining the reliability, accuracy, and governance of your SAP BI deployment, as well as the confidence of your information consumers.

Critically, Insight monitors your SAP BI services from outside, ensuring that monitoring is not compromised by problems within the BI system itself.
