APOS Insight establishes a deep and rich BI system metadata repository that allows you to clearly analyze:

  • User activity
  • Report & dashboard usage and consumption patterns
  • License and session activity

…and much more.

BI metadata allows you to understand the impact on your BI system of business issues, user issues and system planning issues.

Understanding SAP BusinessObjects system behavior means understanding both user activities and system activities. APOS Insight will help you answer critical questions about your SAP BusinessObjects deployment quickly and accurately, questions such as:

  • Do we need more licenses?
  • Can we get reports to the sales organization in a timely manner?
  • Will a temporary budget freeze prevent us from adding the new users we need to keep operations working smoothly?
  • Can we justify our computer capital increase for next year?

Insight's system usage metadata allows you to increase operational efficiency, and plan effectively for change and growth. APOS Insight helps you realize benefits quickly and achieve a broad and deep view of your system, enabling your BI team to:

  • Capture an extensive range of historical system statistics and user metrics
  • Store statistics, metrics, and key performance indicators in an accessible database outside the SAP BusinessObjects system
  • Interrogate this database to uncover challenging system knowledge
  • Analyze statistical and functional information off-line
  • Create targeted reports to answer unique questions and resolve issues

SAP BusinessObjects Audit provides helpful data about the SAP BusinessObjects system, with a particular focus on system actions. To amplify these synergies, APOS Insight improves access to the SAP BusinessObjects audit log by capturing log information, de-normalizing it, and loading it into topical tables for easy and extended reporting.

BI Platform Monitoring BI Platform Monitoring

Processes & services, schedules & instances, performance & functional monitoring

APOS Insight provides proactive system monitoring and alerts for SAP BusinessObjects, using statistical and functional tests to verify that services are not only running, but running according to specifications. APOS Insight can also run corrective, self-healing sc_ripts, These sc_ripts can be triggered automatically when Insight's platform monitoring services' thresholds are crossed.

APOS Insight performs real-time monitoring of your BI platform, including:

  • Processes & services
  • Schedules & instances
  • Performance & functional monitoring

Using the APOS Insight Management Console, you can:

  • View and monitor all user sessions. Delete sessions when necessary.
  • Analyze and control all servers from one command center. Bulk server start, stop, restart, enable or disable. Control server settings.
  • Monitor all running and pending jobs. Stop, pause, or release jobs as needed.
  • Receive alerts in real time.
  • Analyze historical data and search the audit log.

APOS Insight uses Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to communicate real-time information about your BI platform in the form of alerts. APOS Insight alerts enable proactive server management through predictive analysis, using thresholds to anticipate instabilities in the system, and to initiate automatic, remote corrective actions. You can:

  • Monitor various system activities and performance indicators and set timed thresholds for alerts when the threshold is crossed or when service levels return to normal.
  • Monitor system functionality to make sure your servers are operating properly.
  • Monitor memory levels, CPU usage, and event log messages from services to identify system instabilities.
  • Take corrective action by running sc_ripts automatically when alert conditions occur.
  • Alert by sending email messages, sending to the Windows Event Log, or using SNMP.

APOS Insight provides proactive system monitoring for SAP BusinessObjects in real time, but it also logs that historical data, letting you analyze it to anticipate future needs.

The APOS Insight Website Auditor resides on your web application server and audits web application server sessions and SAP BusinessObjects sessions. The Website Auditor captures a wealth of information about these sessions, including the parameters used in each transaction, URLs, cookies, header information, posting information, and SAP BusinessObjects login details. It captures far more than the web application server's native audit log and writes it to a database table, which can then be used to populate dashboards and reports for a near real-time view of web application server activity.

The Website Auditor captures the granular activities on your web application server, but also provides a high-level view of the server — what is trending, which reports and pages receive the most visits, when usage peaks, bottlenecks, which user groups use the most web application server resources, and more.
This feature is equally valuable for both operational and governance issues. The granular detail captured by the Website Auditor makes it extremely useful for organizations in heavily regulated industries in which access to sensitive data must be tracked for governance and compliance purposes.
