Unified visualization
  • Scenarios (AC, PL, FC) according to IBCS are integrated and applicable to data series and axes.
  • Previous years can be displayed lighter.
  • Categories can be displayed in standard widths for period types (years, quarters, months, …) or in user-defined widths.
  • Company-specific styles can be defined in an external style editor and imported into hi-chart to centralize a uniform style.


Highlighting is available to focus the presentation, such as

  • Difference indicators,
  • Value indicators,
  • Scaling indicators und
  • Comment references
  • Unified scaling can be easily implemented using scaling groups and scaling indicators.
  • In this case, a distinction is made between different measures, which scale simultaneously.
  • The font size concept allows the representation to be scaled up or down only by changing the font size.
  • Labels can be displayed separately by measure (value, quantities, percent) in thousands, million, bn.
  • Multiple nested hierarchies for tables and charts (waterfalls) are possible.
  • BW-hierarchies are recognized automatically.
  • Drilldowns in charts and tables are possible.
  • Multiple SAP data sources can be assigned to one hi-chart object.
  • CSV files from Excel can also be easily integrated as a data source.
  • In the built-in pivotizer, data can also be repivotized and filtered outside SAP queries.
  • Objects can be dynamically transformed into one another, e.g.
    • Horizontal axis (time) in vertical axis (structure),
    • Charts in tables,
    • Absolute in percent deviations,
    • Scenarios (AC, PL, FC) can be changed,
    • Labels can be shown or hidden
  • The number of sub charts, data series, and categories can be dynamically adjusted by the elements of a dimension.
  • Definable click interactivity for interactive dashboard solutions.
  • Rows, columns, charts, sub charts, data points and axis labels can be defined as clickable and are highlighted when hovering.
  • Click event handling can be programmed with scripting.
  • Integrated full JavaScript scripting.
  • Scripting editor with intellisense, name completion and parameter display.
  • The entire object hierarchy of the charts and tables can be controlled by scripting.
  • Objects can be dynamically transformed into one another, e.g.
    • Horizontal axis (time) in vertical axis (structure),
    • Charts in tables,
    • Absolute in percent deviations,
    • Scenarios (AC, PL, FC) can be changed,
    • Labels can be shown or hidden
  • You can export files using scripting or via user interface:
    • CSV for Excel,
    • JPEG and
    • PDF
  • With scripting, multi-page PDF files can also be compiled from different sources.
  • The PDF exports (in contrast to the standard DesignStudio PDFs) have a high graphic (printable) quality.
  • hi-chart in the Webbrowser and hi-chart extension for SAP Lumira Designer or Design Studio can exchange projects among each other.
