Tuesday, February 20th at 10AM PT/1PM ET

Despite numerous great features and advantages of native components within SAP Dashboards, developers often face challenges when building complex and large dashboards. The first major challenge is that the work cannot be divided among multiple developers due to its lack of capability to merge and share dashboard projects. The second challenge is faced when the number of components increase causing the loading, previewing and over-all navigation of the dashboard to slow down.

Join us and Expert Dashboard Developer Runali Ghosh, as she demonstrates and discusses examples of Advanced iFrame; an add-on component that enables developing large dashboards with several tabs and pages. A solution that permits multiple developers to work in parallel, improving the performance of the Dashboard as well as the Design.
