Get busy with #SAPVisi – SAP Visual Intelligence 1.0.7 is out – What is new?

New things have come in SAP Visual Intelligence 1.0.7

You can update automatically using the Help > Check for new updates


Also notice that it supports the 3.x Universes


You can also edit the query – e.g. remove columns


You can also use the data manipulation tool for type conversion (date, number, text)


Other new features:

  • 32 bit version – I have not tried, but I understand it works with 32 bit Windows 2007
  • Level-based HANA hierarchy support
  • Removal of 15m cell limitation at acquisition time for offline sources (Note: per SAP, users get a warning popup if dataset has more than 30m cells) and the 15M cell limit still applies to Universes)
  • Define schema and name when publishing dataset to HANA
  • Ability to change the application’s preferred font type and size

You can try Visual Intelligence and enter the Data Geek Contest (which ends November 30th) by going to

      You need a Numeric object for a Time hierarchy, and familiar 'place names' to detect the Geo data (otherwise latitude/longitude coordinates)

      There are no other definable types of hierarchy beyond that. i.e. you can't model a Product or Material hierarchy. Even from universes, custom navigation paths (hierarchy editor) are not preserved into VI.
