Mobilizing Analysis OLAP using Design Studio

At last year’s BI 2013 conference I heard SAP say several times that your path to mobility from Analysis is through Design Studio.  I also wanted to further expand Looking at Analysis OLAP to Design Studio

In this example I am using SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for OLAP | SCN

First, I have already logged on to the BI Launchpad, inserted a BEx Query as a datasource.


I even turned on conditional formatting, highlight a project that is overbudget.   Notice that I have two sheets – one named “Normal” and the other “Swap Axes”.

I export it to Design Studio, selecting the iPad option:


This is how it looks in Design Studio:


Because I want to use Mobile BI with this Design Studio application, I have to assign it a Mobile category in the BI Launchpad:


Now I can log on to Mobile BI  – this is how it looks on the iPad:


I can select the second tab:


I can use the features of Mobile BI to annotate the project (why is it over budget?)


So overall starting in Analysis OLAP is a good start to prototyping your Design Studio application.  It does the heavy lifting of the tab strips and initial design.

I am looking forward to learning more at BI 2014 next month.
