Precision Drilling


Our SAP Analytics Cloud deployment focused on the reports that needed to be in place on our Go-Live date. We used SAC to populate dashboards with drill-down capabilities for execution and middle management, but we needed to find a way to get this information out reliably to our field superintendents. APOS Publisher for Cloud easily filled this gap in our requirements.

Why Broadcasting is Important

APOS Publisher for SAP S/4HANA broadcasting uses automated, dynamic, S/4HANA data-driven processes to push personalized SAP S/4HANA embedded analytics content out to the appropriate people at the appropriate time in appropriate formats and to appropriate destinations. Broadcasting ensures that your people get the timely information they need (and only the information they need) to excel in their work. Broadcasting enables scenarios in which personalized analytics information can be consumed offline in the formats most useful to the recipients. Broadcasting removes barriers to connection and simplifies the user experience: users do not need power-user expertise in analytics to get the information they need when they need it.

Broadcasting is low maintenance, because it is data-driven. You can "set it and forget it," because as the data driving the processes changes, the broadcasting process adjusts automatically. Broadcasting accomplishes far more than scheduling by serving personalized tranches of information. Scheduling pushes information to a static list of users, and scheduling changes are labor- and time-intensive. Achieving Broadcasting's dynamic flexibility would be prohibitively labor- and time-intensive if attempted with scheduling.

APOS Publisher for SAP S/4HANA broadcasting is doubly liberating: it relieves IT of labor-intensive processes, and it relieves users of the need to search for information – information comes to them.
