ASUG had this webcast today with SAP’s Jie Deng. The same legal disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.

Design Studio is designed for the corporate dashboard, IT professionals or power users create and end users consume enterprise wide
Lumira is for ad hoc use case
Coming in the future is more interoperability between Design Studio & Lumira

In current version define button, define 10 rows, and once need to call – only call button….but not convenient. In 1.4 define global script functions will be available to (as an example) define 10 rows as one function with an input parameter
