APOS Upgrade BI S3 Bundle

APOS offers a migration bundle that combines some of our most popular technologies to streamline, speed and secure your BI upgrade process.

Deep System Knowledge

With the APOS Upgrade BI S3 Bundle, you can:

  • Inventory and catalog your existing reports to know where your reports and instances are, and which reports are in use, by whom and how frequently.
  • Document your reports to know their composition and data connections.
  • Populate a database with point-in-time snapshots of system status.
  • Extract benchmark information about your system before the migration, then after the migration, and compare them.
  • Run comparison reports/queries of what has changed.
  • See where reports have moved to in the new deployment.
  • Map IDs in one system to IDs in the other.
  • Compare the security structures between the two environments to ensure groups are in place, users are in groups and all are properly permissioned, thus eliminating security holes.

Systematic Content Management

With the APOS Upgrade BI S3 Bundle, you can:

  • Mitigate risk by safeguarding objects, document instances, and instance integrity for audit and compliance purposes.
  • Migrate document instances from one deployment of SAP BusinessObjects to another; perform partial or complete migration.

Bulk Administrative Operations
