This was a webcast hosted by the SAP User Group today.  The usual legal disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.  These are my rough notes as I heard them.

Integrated to BI Platform

Leverage authorizations from BW/BI platform

Leverage performance, reliability

Future will leverage commentary on platform

Interop w/ Analysis Office

On this slide, interoperability was discussed, with one file format on the BI Platform

This is the "marketecture" slide

Discovery – business user uses for self service

Use combined server add-on

Use Design Studio  runtime for online BW access

Discovery – Lumira users can use Design Studio runtime to go directly to BW system to do ad-hoc self service analysis

BICS – access to OLAP functionalities with Discovery client, connect directly to BW, currency conversions, select hierarchies

Designer is Eclipse-based

Velocity engine – acquire BW data, as DS user access “in memory” but not always need online data

Replicate data to velocity engine to use for reporting

One data format is saved on BI platform

Information Consumer can access

Figure 6: Source: SAP

Design Studio has online connectivity to BW

Lumira has online data prep

Both clients benefit

Design Studio SDK, Lumira SDK, will work with Lumira 2.x releases

How upgrade to Lumira 2.0

Lumira 2.0 run time is really a Design Studio run time

Design Studio – system upgrade

Design Studio 1.6 existing app still run in 2.x

Can still edit with Lumira 2.0 designer client and save in 1.6 format

If create new project 2.0, then use 2.0 format

2.0 is the new Fiori component, interact with discovery client

New 2.0 features – infocharts, responsive layout, new bookmark concept, reusability

A way to do content conversion

Most will be automatic; some manual effort will be expected (CSS style sheets for example)

System upgrade and content conversion are independent of each other

Decide when you want to convert to 2.0 format

Figure 8: Source: SAP

2.0 not provide NW/HANA add-on

Only BI platform add-on will be provided with 2.0

Need to use http based connector

Only the 64 bit client delivered

Figure 9: Source: SAP

Visualize and Compose will be 1 room

Expected rampup is Q4

More robust bookmark
