Design Studio

Design Studio can access SAP HANA data by using an existing olap connection created using the information design tool or CMC. It can also access SAP HANA outside of SAP BI Platform using ODBC data source. Customers should adopt SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio as their primary tool for creating dashboards and applications, both on the Web and on mobile devices, on top of SAP HANA.
