Richard Hunt from Turnkey and Munish Handa from Royal Dutch Shell will present a session on Automating BW7 Reporting Access from your ECC System. Many customers find that when implementing a SAP BW7 system they have to maintain two authorisation concepts. SAP BW7 employs a new authorisation concept, analysis authorisations, and implementing and maintaining the two different solutions can therefore be costly. Administrators often find that maintaining user access across the two systems adds additional administration effort, even when tools such as Central User Administration are deployed. Often customers will have a business rule that users get the same access in their BW system that they have in the ECC system. This will mean that they can only report on data they can display in the core ECC system. Enforcing this rule is difficult though and presents a number of technical challenges.

This presentation will explain a method for automating your access in the BW system based on a users display access in the ECC system using analysis authorisation variables. The solution outlined has been effectively deployed at Royal Dutch Shell on their SAP HCM systems and has reduced role and user maintenance on the SAP BW system by 75%.

Aims of the Session

  • To explain the benefits of an approach to reporting security that aligns reporting access with display access in the source system.
  • To outline how Analysis Authorisations differ from SAP ECC authorisations.
  • To give a detailed customer example explaining how the solution can be deployed.

Matthew Shaw and Svetlana Kropp from SAP will present an Upcoming Business Objects Ramp-up Programmes and Process for Engaging with Ramp-up. This presentation will give an overview of the upcoming programmes around the Business Objects space solutions coming out in Q1 and Q2 2010, as well as a review of all Q4 programmes.

Part 2 will cover Ramp-up what it is, what are the benefits of participating in Ramp-up, existing Ramp-up customers, process for engaging with SAP and what to expect.
