SAP BusinessObjects Analysis Edition for Office 2.0 is now in Ramp-up

Analysis Office 2.0 is now in ramp-up; the current GA version is 1.4

Here is the PAM and below are some key points:

New Features

Table design is an important new feature; it is also known as “Dynamic grid”

When you insert a cross tab, if you insert a row or color style, it would have been lost with navigation/refresh

Now it keeps OLAP navigation and color/structure cross tab so it is extended to layout

This is first step; note that inserting text and formula in empty cells after refresh is not this first release.

This is more for formatting and inserting lines.

Property View is the third column in the Display panel.  It is an “Expert mode”

It allows users who are familiar with Analysis Office to assign several properties in one step

It is not introducing new properties but introduce properties in a visualization

It is similar to Query Designer

More to come – and I hope we learn more at BI 2015 next year
