Updated eBook for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.2

Some of you might be aware that some time ago I created a Kindle eBook for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio.

Why did I decide to publish my books directly as Kindle eBooks ?

Well, I personally stopped carrying around books as soon as I got my first iPad and the eBook format allows me to react much quick to any changes in the software and publish the updates out to everyone.

In addition there is the benefit of a much leaner and cheaper process, which also leads to a much cheaper price and I think that no one has a problem with that.

SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.2 has been released just a few days ago and I updated my eBook to reflect the necessary changes:

  • I updated the existing chapters to reflect the necessary changes of the 1.2 release
  • I added a chapter to highlight “What’s new in the release 1.2”
  • I added a chapter to outline the product roadmap for the release 1.3
  • … and I added a new sample application as part of the “What’s new in release 1.2” chapter to show that you can now use SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.2 and basically create a complete Ad Hoc reporting environment.

In case you did purchase the book already, here the steps to get the updated content:

  • Navigate to “Manage my Kindle
  • Find the book in your own Kindle Library
  • Click on “Update available” next to the book title
  • Follow the steps to update the book

Please note, that it might take 2 – 3 weeks until Amazon enables this, even though the book is already updated and new customers do receive already the updated content – sorry – not much an author can do about that time frame.

As next step I am going to include a chapter on the new available public SDK and will include some examples as well as a chapter on a plug-in from partner graphomate showing some very interesting charting components.

      This would be difficult for people who don't have account in Kindle 🙂  Even I don't have kindly account.  So it would be nice if we have PDF's shared in SCN community 🙂

      You do not need a Kindle to read this - I don't have a Kindle but I am able to view it using the Kindle reader for the computer, Kindle reader for iPhone or iPad

      Go to Amazon.com and search for kindle reader

      As said the books is available as Kindle eBook - no other formats available and for sure not a PDF that people can share instead of buying the book

      You can use an free Android Kindle reader at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=165849822

      How the updates occur depends on your Kindle settings; some happen automatically

      I am sure Ingo will answer the rest
