The ArcGIS Business Analyst widget in ArcGIS Experience Builder is coming out of beta in the February 2023 release of ArcGIS Online. The BA widget packs a significant number of new capabilities and it has been redesigned to allow various customization options.
The Business Analyst (BA) widget allows you to view demographic, Tapestry, market potential, and business information about a specific location using ready-to-use interactive infographics. You can also create custom infographic templates in ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App (Advanced) or ArcGIS Community Analyst. Your custom templates will be available for use in the BA widget in Experience Builder (ExB).

If you have any existing ExB apps with the old BA Infographic (beta) widget, please read this article: Important changes to Experience Builder apps with Business Analyst Infographic (beta) widget.
So, let's explore what's new!
We are introducing two modes to allow you create a customized experience for your end users based on your business needs. The Workflow mode is a new functionality that provides the end user with step-by-step panels for defining location or geography and then running an infographic. If you are transitioning from the BA widget in Web AppBuilder (WAB) to Experience Builder, this is the mode you want to explore. The Preset mode was the default option in the BA Infographic (beta) widget, which allowed embedding an infographic with preconfigured settings. The Preset mode has been redesigned and contains several new enhancements.
