Burst SAP Analytics Cloud Stories

APOS Publisher for SAP Analytics Cloud automates processes for bursting personalized SAP Analytics Cloud stories to end users. Dynamic, security driven processes with strict filters provide SAP Analytics broadcasting capabilities and help administrators ensure users receive only the data to which they are entitled.


APOS Publisher for SAP Analytics Cloud does not reside in the Cloud. Rather, it is a distributed solution that accesses SAP Analytics Cloud from behind your corporate firewall. It constitutes a distributed scheduling system for SAP Analytics Cloud.

APOS Publisher for SAC is an on-premise solution that allows you to log in to the SAP Analytics Cloud deployment and perform bursting, scheduling, and export operations. Using APOS Publisher for Cloud keeps the data behind the firewall and enables the solution to access both on-premise live data and acquired data in the cloud.
