The product features out-of-the box iPad support, state-of-the art HTML5 UI, seamless application theming, a WYSIWYG Eclipse-based designer, full & native support of BW BEx queries, direct connectivity to HANA as well as an advanced scripting engine. For further information on positioning and roadmap for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio please refer to SAP BuisnessObjects Design Studio space.


Are you interested in seeing a preview of the ZEN project? Zen beta program has started and make an early "preview" build available for initial testing and evaluation. The program is expected to start later this year, but we have opened a "pre-registration" where you can express your interest in participating. We will contact you with further details when the program opens.


Please be aware of the following points while registering:

  • Unfortunately we can only accept a limited number of participants into the beta program, so pre-registration does not guarantee acceptance into the beta.
  • A live implementation SAP HANA or SAP Netweaver BW is required to participate in the beta.
  • The beta software can be used for test and evaluation purposes only, and cannot be used in production environments.
