SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Suite 4.1 SP02 (SP2) Released

Good Morning All!

SAP has released today, as planned in the Maintenance Schedule, SAP BI 4.1 SP02.

Update 25/11/2013: Great news!  SAP has added today all of the SAP BI 4.1 Analytics tools with SP02 as a full installation.

Here are some helpful documentations:

The much awaited Grouping Values!

“In a table in a Web Intelligence report, you can collect the values of a dimension into aggregated groups. A variable object for this aggregated group is created in the Available Objects tab on the Side Panel and allows you to manage the group configuration.”

Update: Thanks to WILLIAM MARCY who has insights on some extra undocumented features!  See his post here.
