Separate license for Dashboard Designer (Xcelsius) other than SAP BO suite?

Hello All,

We have a licensed version for SAP BO 4.1 SP6 in our organization. Dashboard Designer (aka Xcelsius) is available as a separate install, but does it require a new license to be purchased? or will the current license of SAP BO 4.1 suite suffice.

Can anyone suggest official release notes of SAP mentioning the same. I have been trying to find but no luck on this.

    It usually comes as part of the BI4.x suite. It is a separate client install.

    It is possible to purchase a STANDALONE version license but with that version you can NOT connect to BI Platform. Standalone version is as it states, single standalone version to work with Excel only. You will need to contact SAP Sales rep to purchase standalone CD version, see below

    Hi, while installing SAP BO Dashboards (Xcelsius), I tried adding the same license key which we have for the SAP BO installation, but it is coming as invalid product key.

    Hi Isha,

    You would need a separate license key for Dashboards/Xcelsius. It's an independent client tool. Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

    Amit

    Yes Isha, For Dashboard separate license is required as it is standalone product.
