APOS Solutions - Governance & Compliance

Governance is a means of controlling outcomes to ensure they do not violate rules and rights. The forms of governance within a corporation are essentially nested and overlapping:

  1. Corporate
  2. Regulatory
  3. Information Technology
  4. Information
  5. Distribution
  6. Data

APOS well managed BI solutions assist with all forms of governance as they relate to your SAP BI and Analytics deployments and the solutions integrated with those deployments.
Compliance is specific to regulatory bodies and industries. APOS solutions have compliance applications with regard to:

By automating administrative processes, APOS Administrator removes significant risks, and tightens controls and governance over your system management.

Administrator allows your BI team to do more in less time, dramatically increasing their productivity, and liberating them to perform higher ROI tasks, such as ensuring corporate, IT, information and data governance principles are applied across your BI deployment.

APOS Storage Center

APOS Storage Center

APOS Storage Center is the core technology that makes a system storage strategy possible. Your system storage strategy is one of the keys to enforcing corporate, IT, information and data governance, giving you control over the content on your system, while preserving documents in their many versions for long-term availability and regulatory compliance.

You can use Storage Center's automated, business-rules-driven, intelligent system clean up capabilities to secure your content, with versioning, and in neutral formats that are not dependent on often-changing data sources.
Storage Center's promotion and system replication capabilities assist governance by ensuring orderly transitions of content between deployments

Storage Center's selective restore capabilities allow you to restore content to its original location, or to a new location of your choosing. So, in the case of events such as audits, you can restore the content to be audited - and only that content — to a location separate from other potentially sensitive content.

Achieve regulatory compliance by maintaining "document-of-record" integrity throughout the
backup, archive, restore, and migration processes.
