Design Studio Status and Roadmap

SAP’s David Stocker gave this webcast last week, sponsored by APOS

The usual disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.

Figure 1 should be well-known now, from when SAP first presented this at ASUG Annual Conference last June.

Figure 2 covers the key features in Design Studio 1.4, some of which are not yet out (enhanced template is coming in SP1) and multi-language support is coming to BIP in release 1.5.

Figure 3 shows an updated roadmap for Design Studio

Planned for 1.5 is an offline capability shown in the middle of Figure 3.  The first version is Xcelsius like

SAP is working on solving the Local calculation problem; this is one of XCelsius’s greatest features; asks for patience (see Future on the right of Figure 3)

Geomaps – often question why this is not shipped.  They are making good progress and in Q2 they plan to  include a limited free subscription to Esri; more resolution

The geomaps are Esri based – support for geo-JSON

SAP is looking at handling prototypes for commentary

Figure 6 shows a Design Studio demo with real-time alerts; the speaker said this is the “Art of the possible”

Because the webcast was running over time, I missed: APOS Dashboard Migrator and APOS Dashboard Auditor, “two APOS products to “help with the move to Design Studio” says APOS.

I hope to learn more updates at BI 2015

      Hi Tammy,

      Regarding the offline capability planned for DS 1.5, are you able to provide any more information about what is meant by "the first version will be Xcelsius like"?

      Thanks,

      Mustafa.

      Hi Mustafa - thank you for reading and commenting.

      I don't have any experience with XCelsius - the SAP speaker said it would like Xcelsius - which I interpret to mean it would work like this: Offline Mobile Dashboards - purely guess work on my part.

      Thanks Tammy.  The link was helpful.  I'll be interested to see how the Design Studio mobile functionality is implemented when it comes out.

      On DS 1.5 , there is the Parallel Query Handling. What is this? Does it means that if have more than one data sources, they are executed in parallel?

      Hi Andrea,

      Exactly.Right now Design Studio executing queries in serial. And this is major misstep.

      I hope that this feature will be developed also for WEBI in the future.
