Latest News on Design Studio – ASUG Annual Conference Part 1

Last week we had an in-depth session on the latest news on Design Studio at ASUG Annual Conference (co-located with SAPPHIRENOW)

Below are my notes.  Note many things are subject to the legal disclaimer and subject to change.

Figure 1 shows the usual legal disclaimer applies that things are subject to change.

Now I know we’ve seen this slide before but last week I think the message was made clear at the conference that the many BI clients are or will be native to BI, like Lumira is now.  Design Studio has a native HANA deployment option in 1.3.

Figure 3 shows a partner SDK add-on by Graphomate.  What I like about this as an accountant is that it explains the details behind the return on assets KPI.

Figure 4 shows the CubeServ SDK with micro charts (reminding me of Web Intelligence) and status and trend icons.

Figure 5 shows the KPI tiles (this is a common question here on SCN)


Figure 6: Source: SAP

Figure 6 shows geo reporting with the CubeServ SDK – this is another common question about Design Studio.

I believe these partner SDK’s can be located on SAP Store.

Coming with a Design Studio SP, Figure 7 shows the ability to import a SAP BusinessObjects Lumira CVOM SDK into Design Studio.  So if you build an SDK in either application you will have the capability to share them in both.

Figure 8 shows sample Lumira CVOM chart extensions, developed mostly by SAP.

Figure 9 shows the details on the ad hoc analysis template available now in Design Studio template and how to use it as a URL string.  Be sure to check out the options in the lower right/left of the ad hoc template as shown in Figure 9.

Figure 10 shows more details in-depth of the ad-hoc analysis template.  I share this as these are slides I had not seen before.

More details to share in the next blog.  Part 2 is coming.

  • Hi Tammy,

    thank you for sharing your nodes. I love the summary. It is not my major area there, but it is always nice to have a short introduction to see what’s around me.

    Hope I will find some time to get into the Design Studio SDK. This looks awesome and I’m pretty sure it will be an impact how to combine two awesome possibilities.


  • Hi Tammy,

    thank you for the news and insights from the ASUG conference.

    Could you elaborate a bit, what the item on Figure 9 (“Immediately usable as application via URL string”) means? I couldn’t find anything in the documentation so far.

    Does this mean, without development a direct execution of queries without development with Design Studio using the template is possible?

    Sorry, in case I missed the item in the manuals.

    Regards, Philipp

    • If you look at Figure 9, you can add the query string/system to it and use it as a URL to launch the application and run it.

      When I get some time I will try to show this. 

      • Hi Tammy,

        thx for the link. I was able to get to the right parameter by playing with the “On Startup” event in the application.

        The only issue that remains for me ist that I have to give the “DataSourceConnection” into the XSYSTEM parameter as a CUID (since we’re using the BI Platform). So my current append to the OpenDocument link looks something like this:


        Otherwise I’m very pleased with it. Thanks again for the help.

        Regards, Philipp
