Question and Answer



What options do we have to enable on iPad with SP6 ?

  1. 6.3 will work with 4.1 versions

When is release date for SP 7 ?

December is the planned date

What options do we have to enable SSO with SP6 ?

Kerberos SSO are available with SP7 - not backported to SP6

Will you be supporting Android tablets at some point? If so, approximately when?

Plan to support Lumira content on Android - still working on dates for Android release; Q2/Q3 2016 to introduce Lumira on Android

Does 4.2 include the functionality from SP06 and SP07

not all the features - everything in SP6 is in 4.2; sp7 and 4.2 timelines clashed - some features not in 4.2 versus SP7 - for example Kerberos SSO is not in 4.2 ramp-up

Is there any option to configure SSO with SP6 without Kerberos ?

Yes, support all SSO currently supported with BI platform
