New Generic Template Design Studio 1.4 SP2

Following up from 1.4 Adhoc Template – search query I noticed today that in SP2 of Design Studio there is a new Generic template.  See below.


Figure 1

First create a new application and select Generic Analysis Template


Figure 2

Let’s say I do nothing except execute the application locally.  I get a message (shown above) that tells me to enter the XSYSTEM and XQUERY – XSYSTEM is the system ID on your SAP Gui and XQUERY is the BEx query.  Once I do that, I see success, shown below:

Figure 3 shows the cross tab and the familiar navigation panel.


Figure 4

I click the chart shown in the upper right corner.  I hope up the panel in the middle and more chart options are shown.


Figure 5

Figure 5 shows the result of selecting a different chart type.


Figure 6

Figure 6 shows the result when I click “Back to Start” – similar to BEx.


Figure 7

Figure 7 shows the familiar Information screen

Notice I didn’t do any scripting; I simply entered the system and the BEx query.  This could be the start of self-service for the business analyst using Design Studio, without any IT involvement.
