This has been a topic for years. We dont know a date for delivery, more importantly we don’t know what "integration" means.
Clearly, product management drives to chase the developer market going to the web, satisfied being an end point with a different twist on GUI theme. Unfortunately this puts the product in a position of just content deliver rather than part of a continuous steam of consciousness that knowledge workers require to get their jobs done. I’m not confident that DDA product management understands nor values the difference between the two.
I've commented before that I think this is a serious mistake given the greater need in the market to co-exist with Excel. We brought this product with the hopes leveraging knowledge worker productivity and instead it just turned out to be another "cute" way of rendering data that has been rejected by the mass of users we are supposed to serve.
These days IT is finding itself having to actually help the knowledge worker be more productive and their voice is being heard when efforts like this fail.
I think the most disappointing aspect of DDA is that the potential for greatness is reduced to dangling a carrot in front of a horse. This has been the most frustrating part of the whole exercise.
