How does your organisation fulfill its duty of care towards data security?

Safeguarding data is of paramount importance to any organisation.Your security model must ensure protection of confidential data, legislative compliance and provide a platform for ease of maintenance and expansion. Inefficient security models can lead to costly overheads and potentially compromise security. An entirely different set of challenges arise when migrating from previous BusinessObjects™ releases to SAP® BI4.


Your security model is at the heart of your SAP® BI deployment

The SAP® BusinessObjects™ security model protects your data assets and plays a vital role in the administration of the entire platform. Xoomworks consultants have significant experience in designing scalable, robust security models that are easy to maintain. We follow best practice in defining business roles and functions, thereby minimising complexity. We can also enable varying degrees of delegated administration to empower your business units and reduce the dependency on IT.


Migrations to BI4

We are ideally positioned to migrate your legacy BusinessObjects™ security to BI4, having pioneered the migration of one of the largest SAP® BusinessObjects™ global enterprise platforms. Our comprehensive security gap analysis methodology will significantly accelerate your migration process.


“I’d certainly recommend them. Particularly for getting things set up and configured correctly in the fist place.”


When did you last review your SAP® BI security?

  • Robust authentication, authorisation and access control
  • Rapidly plan and implement required security model changes
  • Reduce time and resources required to support and maintain your security model
  • Ensure and demonstrate legislative and corporate compliance
  • Ensure your security model is scalable to meet changing requirements


The benefits:

  • A comprehensive approach to your data’s security based on recognised best practice techniques and industry experience that will align perfectly with your requirements
  • Security controls that provide the maximum level of protection – combining row level security through the semantic layer, content restrictions by business function, and application level security to ensure licence compliance
  • We leverage the full capabilities of the platform to integrate your existing external authentication and authorisation technology such as Active Directory and SAP®
  • Reduce administration overheads and increase users’ confidence in your solution
  • We will optimise your existing security and our gap analysis will highlight incompatible rights in your current model
  • We will ensure we leave you with a robust model that is easy to maintain


XOOMWORKS Protect deliverables
