SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.1 Cookbook (2nd edition) coming this spring

Posted by on Mar 5, 2015

coming soon mockup_EN_2We are currently in the very final stages of editing the second edition of the SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.1 Cookbook. We expect the book to be available in an eBook and paper edition in just a few weeks from now (April 2015).

For this updated version of the cookbook we broadened the scope a bit for the beginning SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards developer as well for the more experienced user. We will for example provide some more introduction to the SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards tool itself before diving into the practical step-by-step recipes right from the start. For the more seasoned users we added chapters about dashboard performance tuning and development productivity, plus a bunch of new tips & tricks throughout the book.

The original cookbook was released almost five years ago and covered version 4.0 of SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards. The second edition is updated up to the latest version of SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.1. Together with a team of technical reviewers, existing of some world class SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards developers, we checked the existing content from the first cookbook on its relevance, correctness and completeness. Most recipes have been updated, some a bit more than others, and we decided to keep a few of them out of the new book.

Of course we also added a lot of new recipes to feature the new 4.1 features and include more tips & tricks. We discuss all the new components, the new mobile dashboards concept and the new connectivity options, complemented with new chapters on performance tuning and development productivity. At the end of the book the other dashboarding solution by SAP (Design Studio) is introduced.

With 100 recipes and 470 pages of content (almost 150 pages more than the first edition) this will be thé ultimate and definite guide for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.1 developers!
