New look for components in IBM Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel

To provide a consistent user experience across IBM products, certain components in Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel that are shared with IBM® Planning Analytics Workspace, have been updated to use Carbon Design principles.

The updated user interface of the components (cube viewer, set editor, drill through, and content store) make it easier to accomplish tasks. The improved and simplified user interface also offers flexible options to view, analyze, and organize data.

For example, the updated cube viewer has a responsive grid and a more guided and intuitive experience that makes it more accessible.
