The “closed beta” of the Semantic Viewer has been turned into an “open beta” with version 3.0 of the Explorer in December 2015. Please find more details in our latest news log.
You can also access the Semantic Viewer directly.
If you like the SAP UX Explorer and the exposed relations, I’m sure you are going to love the new Semantic Viewer (Beta) we are currently working on. I had the chance to demo it already during the ASUG webinar “SAP UX Explorer – Overview” with great feedback.
What is the Semantic Viewer?
The Semantic Viewer for SAP UX Explorer allows you to visualize the relations between different topics in our database. There are already hundreds of relations that can be explored. Up to now however, these relations were provided by text only:
Obviously, it is not easy to consume that information, especially if a topic holds a lot of relations or if you want to oversee the relations holistically. The screenshot below for example shows the direct neighbor topics of SAP HCP filtered by the relation type “delivered by”. This is exactly the same information like the one in the screenshot above. At the same time however, you can also explore the neighbors of the neighbors which reveals additional interesting information. In this case we see that UI Theme Designer and SAPUI5 are not only delivered by SAP HCP but also by other delivery channels.
I have added the screenshot below, just to show the current state of the filter settings panel. Of course we want to further extend this tool so that it can become your best companion to easily navigate through our SAP UX Explorer content and explore helpful information.
How can I get access to the Semantic Viewer?
We plan to start a closed beta phase by next week (or latest the week after) with all users who have filled-out our satisfaction survey and left their e-mail address.
As a result, becoming part of this closed beta phase is quite easy. Just fill out the SAP UX Explorer – Satisfaction Survey, leave your e-mail address and add the words “Semantic Viewer” in the comments section at the end of the survey form. We are going to get in touch with everybody to provide detailed access information and the exact start date of the test phase.
Currently we plan to keep this closed beta phase going for at least four weeks and continue with an open beta running until end of this year.
If you would like be one of the first exploring our SAP UX Explorer data with the Semantic Viewer – it’s your chance. 😉
