    Hi Marcio,

    Cool, nice blog. Quick question, does Integrated planning supported on design studio BO/BI Platform or only supported on Netweaver platform only… Design studio is not compatible for Input ready queries or for planning applications?

    Do you have any plans for supporting it in the future versions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards

      Hello TR,

      Thank you! Yes, planning is already supported for Design Studio running on BIP.

      Notice, however, that a BW backend as the IP system is necessary.

      Kind Regards,

        Thank you Marcio, Planning applications works with Input ready queries on BIP Platform right?

        Do we need to do any scripting for it  to make it work, example using the command : DS_1.configureInputReadiness(true)?
