SAP Visual Intelligence 1.0 (internal project name “Hilo”) will generally available tomorrow*. It is the latest innovation in the SAP BusinessObjects Explorer solution family.
It is a desktop-based visualization and data manipulation solution that is designed to complement (not replace) the existing Explorer products. After downloading and installing the application (approximately 150 MB), users can connect to SAP HANA sources and start data discovery, analysis, and sharing.
The new product will be formally launched at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando this week, and more information is available on the site http://experienceexplorer.com. You can also try the solution for 30 days with your own data, using a virtual machine environment: Try it Now (SAP Community Network login required).
Later versions of the product will connect to other data sources, a further step towards business intelligence “data discovery.”
