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 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 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
