Update – Mastering SAP Design Studio with SAP NetWeaver BW

As lately several people have asked when I will update my eBook on SAP Design Studio I thought I will just leave a short notice to everyone that I am planning to update the eBook for the release 1.5 of SAP Design Studio.

Release 1.5 is away only a few months, so there is no point in updating the book now for release 1.4 and then update it again for release 1.5 again as it does take a few weeks to update something like a complete book.

In the new release I will also include all the new topics such as Global scripting, online composition, enhanced bookmarking, … and so on.

I will also include a chapter on SAP Design Studio with SAP HANA and most important, I am planning to include actual videos into the eBook (offline videos) so that are able to follow along in the video as well.

and as I am now with Visual BI, the book will also include a chapter on how you can use our Visual BI Design Studio Extensions.

So….

– Yes the update is planned for the release 1.5

– No you don’t have to pay extra for the update if you own the book already

– No I am not planning to increase the price.

I hope that clarifies it and you are all looking forward to the book.

      Everyone,

      I will be very hard to finish by end of October for release 1.5 and I can't make that promise with all other items on my plate.

      End of this year with updates for 1.5 and 1.6 is more likely.

      sorry

      Hi Ingo,

      Since Design Studio 1.6 is out with nice features like scorecards and spreadsheet (not sure if formulas are supported), what is your advice if I should wait unless support pack arrive for 1.6 or can start with 1.5 SP2?

      Your input is highly appreciated.

      Thanks.

      Ingo,

      If Universes still not supported in DS 1.6? I only see backend connections for SAP BW and SAP Hana.

      Nadeem - universes are supported in 1.6, as they have been in previous versions.  I encourage you to read the SAP help at help.sap.com/boad

      Universes are already supported for a very long time.
