Design studio: requirements for SMEs
as we're currently evaluating SAP analytics visualization tools for SMEs, there are two restrictions for design studio which seem to be a no-go for SMEs, but maybe there are workarounds for that:
- Publishing a design studio report only works on BI (BO server) or BW portal. Both - mostly - is not applicable for SMEs since they often have no SAP BW, much less SAP BI (BO server). Is there a way to publish a report
- to a different target (e.g. any web server, web application server as part of the SAP ABAP stack) or at least
- to a SAP Portal that is not necessarily connected to an ABAP BW system. At the moment, the portal publishing option is only available when connecting to a SAP BW backend?
- Accessing data from a SAP system seems to only work for BW objects (e.g. cubes) and DDIC views. Again, if there's no BW system: what about OData? Or at least JSON or JavaConnector / JDBC? Are these officially supported as well?
Many thanks & regards
