SAP’s Ian Mayor was part of this APOS webcast. He said the usual disclaimer applies that things are subject to change. I won’t repeat what was already covered Design Studio Overview Roadmap EMEA Webcast – Includes Design Studio 1.3 Details and BI2014 Design Studio 1.3 Planned Updates
Ian said that Design Studio 1.3 is planned to be released at the end of May (roughly)

APOS Dashboard Migration was released recently
Another release this past week, a new version.
It enables XCelsius content in Design Studio
The reasons to develop are because many organizations have assets in XCelsius and want to find a way to use that content as they transition to Design Studio

In this webcast APOS reviewed use case scenarios
This supports HTML5 and SWF dashboards
Will you support dashboards on an iOS device? Yes
You can pass parameters from Design Studio to an XCelsius dashboard
Phase 2 has expanded – HTML5, and bring SWF – SWF will not display on iOS
HTML5 is supported
Phase 2 (in Figure 2) allows bi-directional parameters and enhanced data transfer is supported

Figure 6 use cases “removes need to recreate this content”
Different skill sets are required
They want to leverage the skill sets
You can use components in XCelsius model
Ian said he is asked when will Design Studio have all components that XCelsius has? With over 100 components, they are working to close the gap

With Design Studio, move away from spreadsheet model and data at runtime

XCelsius works with smaller datasets
Design Studio works likely large datasets from HANA/BW. You can pass filters to Design Studio
