After having participated in SAP TechEd Las Vegas as an attendee for the last couple of years, this year I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to present ASUG session BA123 Apply a Fresh Face to Your BI Apps with SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. As some of you may already be aware, I enjoy being active in the SCN SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio space and especially writing the Design Studio Innovation Series blog. For those of you who would like to know a little more about me personally and professionally I’m going to take the easy way out and refer you to last month’s SCN Member of the Month post. This time around I won’t be presenting in a pilot’s uniform although I will certainly try to make the session entertaining nevertheless.
What is my session about?
In a nutshell, I’ll be talking about and demonstrating the Fiori concepts in the context of Design Studio and why we should consider adopting these concepts when developing BI apps. Emphasis will be placed on user experience (UX) and mobile first design.
Although I’ll be covering the use of SDK components, I won’t be doing a deep dive into the technical aspects. For those interested in SDK details I would recommend attending Mike Howles‘ session BA209 SDK Experiences: SAP Lumira VizPacker and SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio.
Why should you attend?
The session will include what I hope you’ll find to be three very interesting and practical demos progressively showing what can be achieved in terms of Fiori-style BI apps using both standard and SDK components as follows:
1) Fiori-style with the standard KPI Dashboard Template
This will be our starting point for applying a Fiori design using only standard components;
2) Fiori-style with Community SDK Components
This demo will take advantage of the Fiori-style components available from the SCN Design Studio SDK Development Community to illustrate how such components can accelerate development and simplify maintenance by significantly reducing the overall number of components and scripting required to build a Fiori-style BI app;
3) Pushing the envelope with the SDK and mobile first design
In this special first look, I’ll be sharing a Design Studio SDK initiative which in particular focuses on the Fiori principles of Responsive, Simple and Delightful design.
I look forward to seeing you there and hope you can attend the session. Feel free to comment or message me if you’re going to be at TechEd and would like to meet up.
