It’s working! All right, so it isn’t exactly ready for prime time yet, but my Analysis Lab reports and analysis views have made a successful (and remarkably easy) leap to the new version of SpagoBI. I still need to re-apply some cosmetic tweaks, but I’m quite pleased with the new look and feel the Spago folks have brought to the tool.
I especially like the sleek vertical menu down the left side of the screen, as well as the icon choices. The general impression is that there’s more room for the actual reports and analysis views, which is where the emphasis should be. The report parameters are also smartly placed on the right edge of the screen, and other icon-based functions take up very little real estate. So far, so good.
I’ll report more as I tweak the CSS settings, get the content optimized, and have it ready to roll. Next up is an exploration of the new SpagoBI Studio, which should help me to upgrade the content that winds up in the lab. I’m eager to explore the new features in v4.0, which I’ll post about if I get really fired up!by
