Some of you might now, that I like to put all the helpful information together in form of a book or an eBook, so that our customers have an easy reference to go back to and can easily start learning the new features or the new product.

When Design Studio came out, I decided to wait for the release 1.1 to create the first book.

So here is the new book :

Mastering SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio with SAP NetWeaver BW

/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/cover_design_studio_251045.jpg

The book describes:

  • Installation of Design Studio with BI4 and SAP NetWeaver BW as platform
  • Design Studio environment
  • Available components and their properties and methods
  • Usage of SAP BW specific topics, such as conditions, exceptions, currency translations, hierarchies, …

The book is written with SAP NetWeaver BW in mind and it shows in easy to follow step by step guidance how you can leverage SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio as part of your overall BI landscape.

In addition it shows in form of an advanced example, how you can leverage most of the available functionality in a single application, which provides your users an ad-hoc reporting environment created by SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio.

Enjoy reading it.

    Hello Ingo,

    I’m very interested on getting myself a copy of this book, but it appears that I can’t buy it from Amazon since my region is Asia Pacific.

    Is there anything you can do to lift this restrictions or something I can do to get this book in other way?

    Thank you Ingo.

         This is another great book by Ingo. Took me less than hour to develop my first mobile solution. Instant value, thanks.

            Hello Wolfgang,

            update will come by end of November and you then should get an eMail from Kindle and you would go to “Manage your Kindle” on the Amazon page and simply send the update to your device.

            regards

    Ingo, Going forward would SAP Design Studio replace SAP Dashboards? I am a SAP certified HANA consultant. Should I be concentrating on SAP Design Studio or the older SAP Dashboards?

      Hi Diego,

      as far as I know you  can’t use IP planning functions with DS 1.1 and 1.2.

      According to the Road map which I’ve got at the DSAG Congress  it is planned that you’ll be able to use IP with release  1.3

      Regards

      Christian

    Hi Ingo,

    will you provide an update for release 1.4 or higher?

    To me it seems pretty hard to offer a guide on actual releases. It would be great if you could give us some information about your plans concerning your ebook.

    Thanks in advance

    Chris

          Hi Martin,

          yes I know – mid year has already arrived some time ago.

          I will need another 6 – 8 weeks to finish the book.

          Current plans is to have all the updates for 1.5 very latest by end of October and all the updates for 1.6 by end of the year.

          regards
