Design Studio Sneak Preview 1.4 – ASUG Webcast Part 1

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

First, some positioning of Design Studio by SAP:

Now SAP is positioning Design Studio and Lumira as ad hoc analysis on BW

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

Figure 8 shows global script functions are coming in 1.4.  Today you  have 10 rows of coding that are needed in multiple places.   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
