Post subject: Report Delivery Tools for Scheduling, Bursting, Subscription

Hello,

My client is looking at report delivery tools to implement on top of SAP BusinessObjects WebIntelligence to enable the requested capabilities below. They’ve mentioned Infosol’s InfoBurst; would someone be able to:

1. Share more information on InfoBurst or recommend other report delivery tools that other clients have implemented?
2. Comment on whether the client’s planned upgrade to SAP BusinessObjects v 4.3 will improve scheduling / bursting capabilities?

Requested Capabilities:
• Report Scheduling and Bursting
-----------Shared directly by Email or other Electronic means without requiring access to a portal
-----------Shared to a reporting repository (E.g. Laserfiche)
• Subscriptions
• Embedded reports

Other context:

• They’re currently experiencing performance issues when scheduling for a large number of users (30+)
• The current scheduling tool in BusinessObjects requires them to manually edit a separate instance of a report for each intended recipient (e.g. a power user has to create 400 instances of the same report)[/list]

Those last 2 bullet points make me think that;

A) They don`t know how to scale the job servers in SAP BI.
B) Don`t know how to use report bursting properly.

They were stuck on a old CPU-based license model that prevented them from scaling their servers. They're now transitioning to a user-based license model which should help.

Can you expand on your second point?

Wow, they must be mature, CPU based licenses havn`t existed for years.

On the second point, you can create a publication from a single document that will be burst to multiple external emails with personalised data, isn`t that whats required?

Yep, that's the requirement.

Any known issues / barriers with using Publications?

Can`t answer that without knowing the specific use-case.
