Updates on Analysis Office at ASUG Annual Conference

We had three ASUG BI-related roadmap sessions going on at this time so I feared attendance would be low at this session.  Fortunately the ASUG Annual Conference attendees showed up at this session.  Please note the usual legal disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.

Figure 1 shows the added value of Analysis Office, including the ease of use with the Design Panel. Some gaps that still exist with Analysis Office include broadcasting and documents.

Figure 5 shows another demo example of the new design/display panel, or an enhanced side panel with the ability to change the formatting/properties.

The following slides were NOT covered during this session but in another session:

A common question is when will Analysis Office support Universes?  No news here but Figure 7 shows upcoming updates for Live Office/UNX.

Lastly, one of the reasons I wrote this blog was to support Your mission, should you decide to accept it…Marilyn Prattmission to blog about the event.  I hope others will share their experiences as well.

      Hi Tammy,

      Just to confirm. Is this "beta" version Analysis 2.x ?

      And when will it be available as Ramp Up or GA for customers ?

      Thanks,

      Mina

      Thank you! 🙂

      On Figure 2 under "Planned Innovations" was "Planned Beta: Q2 2014".  We couldn't find "Beta 2.0". However, Figure 4 mentioned it, but we were just unsure. Hence, thank you! for confirming that's the case.

      Usually it is 2 - 3  months after planned/Ramp-Up to be available for customers. I will check around and will post here if I get further info.
