MResult Announces New 360 Degree Audit Tool for Business Objects

MResult's new Auditor for Business Objects provides companies with real insights on the value of their business intelligence systems.

New London, CT, March 12, 2009 --( MResult's new Business Objects Auditor brings "web metrics" like tracking to the world of Business Objects.

Business Objects is one of the leading business intelligence providers in the world, and while a successful BO implementation can bring real competitive advantage the investment in time and money can be high. Understanding how users are interacting with the system is critical for companies to protect that investment and ensure both regulatory compliance and user adoption. But Business Object's "out of the box" audit capability is limited, providing just User and System activities. To be truly useful an audit should combine User, Activity and Security information in a single 360 degree view of your system.

MResult's Auditor for Business Objects provides this view in a series of easy to use, customizable reports. The idea for the product came from Neville Wadia, MResult's lead software architect for business intelligence products and a former software engineer at Business Objects. "We started by looking at metrics from a business person's view," says Wadia. "For a business owner it's all about their own applications; who is viewing their reports, who is supposed to be viewing them but is not. Our application answers these questions by utilizing the Business Objects SDK to regularly pull information from Business Object's Activity and Security tables, transforms it for easy access, then places it in our own data repository for detailed reporting. The result is a light-weight solution that can easily sit on top of your current BO implementation."

"There's a lot an organization can do with this level of information," agrees Chris Shafer, MResult's Vice President of Product Design. "We see definite benefits in terms of regulatory compliance management and IT Compliance, but we've also talked with several companies who are interested in using these reports to help identify areas for increased user training and awareness activity. The old saying about 'not managing what you don't monitor' is especially true for BI, and our product gives companies a powerful tool for monitoring business objects implementations."
