Overview of Xcelsius 2008 SP3 – Part II (Videos)

Overview of Xcelsius Service Pack 3Happy New Year. Well, it’s January, so we can still exchange wishes. As you all know, towards the end of 2009, SAP released Service Pack 3 for Xcelsius 2008. I started a video series to show you what’s new in the latest service pack. This is a 2 part series. In part I, I showed you how to download and install the service pack. I also talked about the new components. As promised, here is part II. In these videos I talk about the new features and also performance enhancements. I tried to squeeze it into a single video, but I couldn’t and since I can only upload a 10min or less video on YouTube, I split it into two. So part II comprises of 2 videos. Don’t forget to watch both of them to get a complete overview. I tried to do my best to cover all the new features, if I had missed something, please feel free to use the comments section to shout it out. Watch the videos after the jump.

Overview of Xcelsius 2008 SP3 – Part I (Video)

Xcelsius Service Pack 3I know it’s not a breaking news anymore that Xcelsius SP3 is out there to download. However, I tried to put together a video post on the same. I’m sure by now many of you must have already downloaded the new SP3 and playing with the new and exciting features and components like a little kid who just got his/her Christmas gift. Trust me, I did the same. This is a 2 part video post series. Part I is all about Downloading, Installing and the New Components. Part 2 is all about the new features. I encourage you all to subscribe to our RSS feed so that you don’t miss out on Part 2 video.

Apart from showing how to Download, Install and talking about the new components, I also quickly demonstrated how to use them. Beginners might find it a little hard to follow. Please note that this is just to introduce the components. We will be doing a series of Text and Video posts in the near future to demonstrate the full functionality of the new components.
