Third Party SDK Extension for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio (BI-DSTUDIO) Certification

SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio enables application designers to create analysis applications and dashboards – based on SAP NetWeaver BW, SAP HANA and universe data sources – for browsers and mobile devices. The product offers a design tool that allows you to create applications easily and intuitively without the need for native HTML programming skills.

In addition to the standard palette of components in Design Studio, which are used to visualize data and enable user interaction, third party vendors can develop their SDK extension with the Design Studio SDK and enhance their analysis applications with custom components, on the BI platform, SAP NetWeaver, or SAP HANA.

SAP offers certification for such SDK Extensions running on SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. Third party vendors now can submit their SDK Extensions solution for certification.
