Automated Report Testing for SAP BusinessObjects - Flashes of Insight

Content validation is a necessary step in the implementation of new versions and SPs of SAP BusinessObjects. Automated report testing ensures your reports stay the same through environmental changes (database, universe, operating system/software upgrades), compliance, upgrade testing, and day to day testing, while eliminating much of the drudgery of this part of the process.

We discuss:

  • Regression Testing
  • Upgrade/Migration Testing
  • Report Modification Governance

… and more

Fast Forward Your BI: Automate WebI UNX Migration for Database Upgrades & More

Many SAP BusinessObjects customers are making the transition away from UNV universes to UNX universes.

What they are discovering is that, as data platforms advance, they may no longer support older BusinessObjects features such as UNV universes. For these organizations, whether small, medium or large, the challenge is multi-faceted: they need to upgrade their data platforms, but must also upgrade their universes and repoint their Web Intelligence reports to the new UNX universes.

In some cases, these conversion projects are deemed too time-consuming and labor-intensive to be performed manually, and these organizations need to find a way to automate the conversion and repointing efforts.

This webinar examines several use cases in which SAP BusinessObjects customers used APOS Migrator for Web Intelligence to convert their UNV universes and repoint their Web Intelligence reports.

We discuss:

  • Data platform support for SAP BusinessObjects
  • Simplified conversion of UNV universes to UNX universes
  • High-volume, high-speed, controlled repointing of Web Intelligence reports
  • Factors affecting your upgrade decisions

…and much more.
