SAP BO Mobile BI 5.0

by Kasper Groen

The new SAP BI Mobile app for iOS (iPad and iPhone) has been uploaded for approved and available in the Apple Store by the end of June. The Android version 'BI Mobile 5.0' is already available on Google Play, though don't be fooled: many features are not in the Android version, e.g. Explorer support and SAP Lumira support. 
Some features will require SAP BI 4.1 or the SP06 on SAP BI 4.0 (already available).  

One BI App, more connectivity
- Explorer: iIf you are running SAP BI 4.1, the app also contains the SAP BO Explorer functionality, for which you needed a separate App before. Ofcourse the Mobile services must have been deployed on the BO server.
- Lumira: You can also connect to SAP Lumira Cloud from the App.  

Design
The Design has been changed. For the better.



Across the various report viewers, the design has been hormized. 

Web Intelligence
Various new chart types are now available, like waterfall, bubble and horizontal chart. This will make it much easier leveraging existing Webi reports using SAP BI Mobile 5.0. 
There are various more enhancements regarding lay-out, like custom axis scaling support, bullet chart enhancement, Geo Analysis enhancements (on iPhone available now), Open Document links (last instance parameter supported now), Show as PDF feature. 


Dashboards
Two new chart types are available (waterfall chart and bubble chart) and some charts are renamed. For some organization the new connectivity of QaaWS is very welcome, although you'll require SAP BI 4.1 platform.

Design Studio
Your Design Studio models can now be viewed on your iPhone as wel. It also now supports Open Document links and full screen mode. 

Enjoy the new App, available in the App store in about a week.
