Data Visualization 

Choropleth Layer Support with Live HANA Cloud Connection

SAP HANA Cloud users can now view and utilize choropleth layers in geo maps. Please note that, in order to correctly set up the spatial files within the SAP HANA Cloud instance with synonyms within the administrative page, sysAdmin is required. Synonyms are required for Live HANA Cloud. While Live HANA customers will be able to set up geo choropleth synonyms with this new enhancement, synonyms are only supported for Live HANA + customers.

Data Integration

Live Data Connect 3.1 for SAP Business Objects

Available with SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.2 SP7+ and BI 4.3, SAP Analytics Cloud users can now perform live data connections to SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence document data models. Leveraging on-premise SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence document data from SAP Analytics Cloud enables you to reuse extensive calculations, solve complex queries, and merge data providers to inform a more agile business intelligence process.
