If you have been tracking latest IT trends, you have probably bumped up against a new catch-phrase: Site Reliability Engineering. Site Reliability Engineering (or SRE) is using “software as a tool to manage systems, solve problems, and automate operations tasks.” In short, it is automating what has been traditionally done manually by the BI Administrator. But SRE is much more than this: Properly implemented, It is automating what the BI Admin, in all honestly, has NEVER been able to do well manually.
In this presentation, UCLA Health walks you through their recent SRE efforts involving ensuring the reliability of daily SAP BusinessObjects report schedule executions, covering what worked well and not so well, lessons learned and recommendations from an SRE perspective. If you are interested in how other organizations are improving the reliability of BI information delivery through SRE principles, be sure to attend this session.
