Xcelsius Roadmap

I was about to purchase Crystal Xcelsius for the company in one shape or another, but now it looks like it lives a a rather secluded life in the BO family. There are virtually nothing new on the web. So I hesitate.

It would be good to know, will Xcelsius continue to be developed and what is the approximate roadmap for Crystal Xcelsius and Crystal Vision?

    Hi Ola,

    I am the Product Manager of Xcelsius. While it may appear to be living a sheltered life I can promise you it is very integrated with the BO family. Already, using QaaWS you can build Xcelsius models off of your universe data and host these within BusinessObjects Enterprise or BusinessObjects Crystal Decisions, using BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise, our latest member of the Xcelsius family. You can learn more here: http://www.businessobjects.com/products/dashboardvisualization/default.asp and here: http://www.businessobjects.com/products/dashboardvisualization/datavisualization.asp

    Additionally we are actively working on the next release of Xcelsius which will see even greater integration with the Business Objects families as well as many new improvements across the entire product line, which will greatly improve the models that can be create and the ease of authoring.

    Take care,

    Saskia Battersby

    Senior Product Manager, Xcelsius

      I have run into a problem with QaaWs where sometimes my returned data sorts for graphing and not for another table. If I load LiveOffice and build the exact queries in that interface they work perfectly.

      So my question to you is if you are the developer what realtime system would you use with Xcelsius, LiveOffice? QaaWs?

      These 2 products look and behave very similar and provide query information to MS Office and Xcelsius applications. We have 7 dashboards now in production using QaaWs but not sure if I want to recommend switching to LiveOffice. The one in SP2 Productivty Pack is so much better than the old version. Pay my compliments to that product team!!!!

      If you have questions let me know at nathert@ccf.org

    Saskia,

    We currently use Xcelsius 4.5 Workgroup. What are the possible upgrades with this license model. All documentation I've read talks about Xcelsius Enterpirse, is this the same, and when / how can we upgrade.

    BTW - excellent presentations at the 2007 Americas conf.
