Gaining visibility into the inner-workings of your SAP BusinessObjects environment can be challenging even for the skilled system administrators. Invariably, the conversation comes down to the “Root Cause”. SAP has a way to help, and it comes to you without additional cost with your Enterprise Support, and it is called the Remote Support Component. RSC is a powerful and insightful monitoring solution that can help you find the root cause, and provide detailed insight into your SAP BusinessObjects system operations. SAP’s Toby Johnston and SAP Mentor Greg Myers give you a tour of RSC and how it can benefit your organization.
