What do you like best?

SAP Lumira capability of cleansing data and working with large amounts of data to have an real-time analysis of what's going on in business with and enjoyable UI, that is extendable thanks to their open source tools to create new visualization extensions makes SAP Lumira an favorite to explore your enterprise information. Working in projects with SAP Lumira helped me to solve old issues with other tools that didn’t allowed me to create new measures or make more precise filter on my data.

What do you dislike?

There are a few things to dislike about it, I would have liked that it worked with google maps by default, also as I’m used to create dynamic text based on user selection when I make reports in other tools I would like to it to be possible in future releases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a software easy to use that allows you to explore your data and report your insights of it with an friendly UI this one is for you

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replacing old dashboards and also taking advantage of the new resources of SAP Lumira that allows me to create simple or complex stories coming from any data source and allowing me to create new calculated measures and dimensions without having to make any modification to the original source and also with an UI that makes the final users feel more comfortable with the data they are manipulating has been one of the best results I’ve had using this software

What do you like best?

The best thing about SAP BusinessObjects Lumira tool is that it is very easy to use. It's self service BI capabilities are just awesome. To my experience, I just learned the entire tool within few days and that is what makes it different from any other similar products available in the market.

What do you dislike?

The only thing which i did not like about SAP BusinessObjects Lumira tool is the limitations related to standard graph and charts available. Some times we need to take technical help to implement custom graphs and chart. This should be improved and functional users can drag and drop charts or plug in to use new charts and graphs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If the business need is self service BI. I will 100% recommend SAP Lumira.

Users will love to work in SAP Lumira for their daily and meeting requirements of reports.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product has reduced the cost of ad hoc reporting for our client. And due to better visual representation user acceptance has been improved.

What do you like best?

As an ABAP consultant, what I like best is that it is easy to create dashboards without coding. The data bindings are very much easy to implement and the data needed is also easy to set-up.

What do you dislike?

As of now, I don't see any major part of the package being not so useful to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like to recommend the usage of SAP Lumira to my managers so that he could see the at a glance the information he needs to see when starting a day. It could be very useful to him since the data is already processed and ready to consumed. He can focused more on the other task he needs to accomplish. It could also save him time in decision making.

It could also be recommended to the finance department since they deal heavily with a lot of numbers. It could be useful if the budget, expenses and the income of the company are being presented in a way that everybody would understand.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently, I'm not doing any problems but I do realized a lot of benefits in using Lumira. It is very easy to used. Training costs would be very minimum yet the possibilities of returns are great. It can provide real-time knowledge in a very easy-to-consumed formats such as graphs, probabilities and etc. It is very useful to the Decision Makers of the company. It can also see the data that are not consistent with the others,

What do you like best?

This is a great program to do initial visualization and analysis. Its simple enough that almost anyone can use it but able to tease out some of the more detailed complexities of a dataset. It should cover all but the most complicated business scenarios and it has the advantage of close integration with SAP data sources. Certainly worth a look by anyone considering a new visualization option.

What do you dislike?

Seems a bit limited in some of the options available. I'd like to see more geographic options. It also is a bit slow on my machine which is surprising considering that it is an i7 with 24GB memory and running off an SSD. It was running under a VM emulation but that should only impact it some 5% at most. However, other similar products are a bit slow as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good start for self-service analytics. It does seem to require a lot of memory, so run it on a system with at least 8GB or 16GB would be better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This was used to do an initial data exploration for a classroom/seminar.

What do you like best?

Easy to pick up and use immediately with minimal training required whatsoever. Lumira is much simpler than Tableau, which is an advantage for quick value, and minimal training requirements.

What do you dislike?

If Lumira were available for Mac OS, it could attract a larger following, especially among designers, writers, consultants, developers etc who typically are using Macbooks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

#1 choice for SAP & SAP BusinessObjects customers. If you already have invested in Universes, Data Warehouse, BW, etc. then save yourself time and headache, and potential data governance nightmare from choosing any other DV vendor.

For net new customers, be sure to evaluate the full breadth of your requirements, not just DV, but also Data Governance, Metadata management, data quality & integration.

80% of a typical analytics project is spent on Data Integration, and that is where SAP is continuing to invest, and already has market leading ETL, Data Quality & Management.

In addition, as part of the SAP BI Edge bundle, Lumira is extremley price competitive and better bang for the buck than other DV vendors, especially if you require Data Integration, management, reporting, etc. All of this is included in BI Edge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Super easy to download and analyze excel data sets. Additional configuration is required in order to connect to an SAP Universe for example.
