Q&A

Q: Sometimes with Query Designer sometimes refresh

A: With Analysis Office, remove close connection with BEx Query Designer; give end user more options in tools

Give more to end user

You can still jump to query and change something and refresh

A: Only doing this via the BI Platform; this provides the services

BW/4HANA does not have the complete NetWeaver structure

Q: Conversion of IT workbooks – from Analyzer

Q: When will Analysis Office 2.8 be available?
