White Paper: SAP BusinessObjects Data Access, Audit, and Accountability with the APOS Intelligent Data Access Controller (IDAC)

One of the most commonly used adjectives for the BI platform manager and BI administrator occupations is "challenging," and understandably so. If BI is your responsibility, over time you will likely face more data, more data sources, more information consumers, and less time to deliver an increasingly complex array of information products.

Even in the best-designed and most highly optimized deployment, these factors will combine to create anomalies in your day to operations. How do you get a handle on query performance issues? How do you track access to sensitive data within increased query activity? These are not merely questions of efficiency. They are questions of risk management and regulatory compliance.

The APOS Intelligent Data Access Controller (IDAC) is a data source agnostic solution for SAP BusinessObjects that can vastly improve the ability of BI platform managers, administrators and technicians to exert control over data and data access across multiple applications, operating systems, and data sources and types. This solution helps you manage and audit data access and activity across technologies, while improving system performance, information security, data privacy, and regulatory accountability.

This white paper provides an in-depth discussion of query performance and sensitive data auditing issues, and how you can use APOS IDAC to achieve greater efficiency and manage risk.

Webinar: SAP BusinessObjects Data Connectivity, Sensitive Data Auditing

What:The APOS Intelligent Data Access Controller (IDAC) Webinar
When: Wednesday, February 20, 2013, at 10 am and 4 pm ET

It's hard to manage what you can't see. Full BI data connection visibility and active BI query control is typically well beyond the reach of most SAP BusinessObjects administrators and platform managers - those who need it most!
Yet you face growing complexity in your SAP BusinessObjects data access, sensitive data audit, and data accountability requirements. In addition to internal query performance challenges, there are audit and monitoring requirements mandated by regulatory compliance. There is no question that these issues represent substantial risk to your organization's success and security.
In this webinar, we will discuss data connectivity issues that present a risk to every data-driven organization, including:
  • Data Visibility and Control - Monitoring and Managing Data Connectivity
  • Sensitive Data Auditing - Data Access Monitoring and Regulatory Compliance
The webinar will also introduce you to the APOS Intelligent Data Access Controller (IDAC), a data access, audit, and accountability solution specifically designed to help SAP BusinessObjects administrators and technicians monitor and manage BI data connections and queries.
