Broadcast Agent allows BusinessObjects and WebIntelligence users to automatically process and publish their Business Objects documents via the repository, an intranet, extranet, or the World Wide Web.
End users can schedule documents for processing and distribution at times which suit their businesses. This can help reduce network traffic congestion, and enables documents to be printed or refreshed on the web at off-peak times (for example, during the night). End users can even set conditions so that Broadcast Agent processes and distributes documents only when events such as increased revenue occur.
From an administration point of view, Broadcast Agent is part of a distributed solution across a CORBA network. Thus, Broadcast Agent offers robust performance, scalability load balancing and failover.
