BackOffice Associates, LLC, a worldwide leader in data migration and
information governance solutions, with a concentration on enhancing ERP data
quality, today announced it will unveil its Data Stewardship Platform and
Application Suite, the next generation of BackOffice’s services and solutions,
at SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference, being held May 14 – 16 at the
Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The BOA Data Stewardship
Platform (DSP™) and the BOA Application Suite will be demonstrated by
BackOffice Associates® in booth 741.

The BOA Data Stewardship Platform (DSP) is a unified and comprehensive
platform designed specifically to reduce time, effort and complexity for ERP
customers as they address data quality issues in master or business
application data. The DSP has been engineered from the ground up and is
enabled by embedded SAP® Data Services software to support seamless
integration and interoperability with SAP functions. The DSP builds on the
industry leading capabilities of information management solutions from SAP by
providing additional data quality, reporting and analytics features designed
to help accelerate user adoption and improve productivity.

“SAPPHIRE NOW provides a great opportunity to introduce our new solutions that
are enabled by SAP Data Services and give SAP users an accelerated path to
deploying and maintaining their data quality, data migration and data
governance projects,” said Rex Ahlstrom, Chief Strategy Officer at BackOffice
Associates. “The DSP and Application Suite empower these users to maximize the
use of their core SAP technologies and increase project success in complex
data environments.”

BOA DSP and Application Suite Features

The BOA DSP provides an enhanced user experience and universal functionality
that encompasses rich, prebuilt content and built-in methodology for data
quality, data migration and data governance solutions. Comprehensive features
that span the DSP include a common user interface to multiple functions, broad
data security, and integrated data management using embedded SAP Data Services
for data integration to many legacy systems. Hundreds of prebuilt reports
support standard and custom metrics, and a process framework guides steps for
error-free data migrations and continuous data harmonization.

Unique to the DSP is integration to BackOffice’s Business Reference Model™
(BRM™) – a rich library of deep domain-specific content designed to
immediately accelerate analytics, reporting and guidance within multiple
industries and lines of business created by BackOffice’s 17 years of
expertise. The BRM content provides prebuilt data quality and process
analytics, which power the reporting and dashboarding performed by the SAP
Information Steward software.

The BOA Application Suite includes a set of three Accelerator Paks that help
jumpstart data quality, data migration and data governance projects. The BOA
Accelerator Pak applications provide access to domain-specific content and
reporting enabled by analytics and dashboarding in SAP Information Steward,
and are designed to help SAP users pinpoint and drill into data errors,
remediate them and apply metrics and a process to maintain ongoing master data
quality and harmonization.

dspMonitor™ – Information Steward Accelerator Pak for various industries and
lines of business. dspMonitor, enabled by SAP Information Steward, jumpstarts
industry-specific data quality objectives such remediating data errors or
omissions and providing guidance for ongoing data harmonization.

dspMigrate™ – Data Services Accelerator Pak for various industries and lines
of business. dspMigrate, enabled by SAP Data Services, provides methodology
and expertise to jumpstart data migrations from legacy or multiple instances
to the SAP ERP application, the SAP Master Data Governance application or the
SAP HANA® platform, depending on client requirements.

dspCompose™ – MDG Accelerator Pak for various industries and lines of
business. dspCompose, enabled by SAP Master Data Governance, provides
industry-specific content and guidance to jumpstart master data collection and
editing in order to reduce cycle time and achieve master data governance
