Alteryx

Alteryx is best suited where the task is complex to the point where you feel like multiple excel spreadsheets and/or differing data sources need to be blended together to solve a problem (complex data blending). Alteryx is also best suited where you find that you are repeating the same task (automation). Alteryx may be less suited for relatively simple analysis that can be solved in a spreadsheet, although I've been using Alteryx to solve these scenarios as of late.

SAP Lumira Discovery

Infographics derived from specific data sources appears to be well suited for development using Lumira. The development of executive level dashboards was less appropriate from my perspective. The software does not provide sufficient demonstration or samples for the users to learn from in my opinion.

Pros

Alteryx

  • Pulling data from multiple disparate data sources.
  • Allows users to see the data at every step of the workflow to be able to cleanse, analyze, and optimize the data.
  • Provides an analytics platform that is easy for users of all levels to thrive in whether they are just starting out in their analytics journey or they have a master's degree in Data Science.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • SAP has built in features you would expect from a data visualization package, like easy import from other SAP systems.
  • SAP has most of the typical charts that you would expect in order to visualize your data.
  • SAP allows you to have multiple charts on one visualization for your data.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Alteryx

  • A larger library of data sources being leveraged/licensed through Alteryx directly similar to the Experian and Dun & Bradstreet data that is available now would be ideal for additional data enrichment.
  • The ability to take R and Python-based data insights/model outputs/forecasts/etc. and pull directly into downstream tools and reporting is a bit lacking and could use improvement.
Cory Hubbard | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • Even though the process of creating visualizations of data is now greatly improved, it could still be a lot better as users become accustomed to this kind of tool and bring forward edge cases the developers did not anticipate.
  • It would be awesome to have a cross platform tool that works on more than just Windows.
  • Some options for specific graphs feel limiting.

We've developed a working partnership with Alteryx. As an enablement suite, we're continuing to innovate and deliver great products with use of Alteryx in our solutions. Alteryx use expands to our global product development teams and is in use in multiple parts of our organization. Alteryx also delivers Experian demographic content to other clients in their product offering. We're highly likely to renew, but that decision is way above my pay grade.

Usability

Alteryx 9.2
Based on 35 answers
The sheer breadth of the functionality and how easy it is to use makes it absolutely revolutionary for any company still using Excel, SQL, etc. The interface is drag and drop and does not require any coding, but also benefits from those with coding ability as it is fully integrated with the likes of R, Python, Spark, etc. Just how quickly the impact of Alteryx is seen is really very impressive.

SAP Lumira is very good self service analytical tool with powerful capabilities. However need to look into other SAP products in BI space, like SAP SAC. SAP Lumira is more used for custom and complex analytical need in business intelligence area. Also SAP Lumira is going out of maintenance in coming future replaced by SAP SAC.

I use many programs and compared to others, Alteryx virtually never goes down, freezes up or gives an application error. Over a 4 year time period that I have used this program, any of these may have happened 3 times. It is an incredibly stable program that I feel completely confident in.

Lumira is a desktop application runs in its own JVM. It installs its own java runtime libraries to avoid any core java version conflicts. The availability of the application is completely relies on individual machine hardware configuration. On a decent desktop, it performs well and always launches in either 32 or 64 bit environment based on the hosts system's OS

The performance is linear with amount of data that is being explored. We have done some benchmarks acquiring 10million data cells without having any performance problems. We need to make proper adjustments to jvm run time properties to start with higher heap size and other parameters that optimizes the run time performance

The online community support is great. 90% of my questions about how to do even esoteric stuff in Alteryx is a search away.When I have had difficult technical problems, Alteryx support has been prompt and helpful. At conferences the support lab and tips and tricks presentations have helped me work through difficult and thorny long term problems.

It does not have many bugs or issues since not a lot of new features are being added. The customer support for SAP Lumira Discovery is good and anyone considering this as a self-service tool would be happy. It integrates well in the SAP BI suite of products and the overall experience is positive.

Most of the user guides are pretty comprehensive and very easy to understand. The product itself is designed to be self-serve tool, did not need much of the end-user training. Most of the training we had is to how to read the data, how to explore the data, how to acquire the data etc.

There is really not much to it (the installation, that is). Once you get it installed, along with any of the add-ons (demographics, R, etc.), you are up and running almost immediately. There is really no additional setup. You can immediately begin blending data, running demographics, performing spatial queries, running predictive analysis, etc. And for many of these functions, the learning curve is quite easy.

Installing the desktop software on end-user machines is always challenging. The machine specifications are the biggest factor when running Lumira and be able to handle large datasets during data exploration. This often demands beefy machines at least for power-users. Although Lumira software licensing is not a big problem but managing partner's extensions and keeping track of their individual licenses may be an issue. If there is a way to bundle the more popular extensions such as vSQL or vOLAP should be bundled in core product and offer them as part of Lumira license instead of a separate license which causer operational burden.

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx

Alteryx is way better than Microsoft Excel. It visually lets you do things to the data, one tool at a time. And, you can just delete the tool if it did not do what you were wanting it to do. Excel is a nice app, but Alteryx expands the capability so much more, especially when combining different data sources.

SAP Lumira Discovery

Even though SAP Analytics Cloud is considered to be better in aspects such as data connectivity or analytics, we decided to choose Lumira as it was easier to understand, learn and use. As our business is not really that big and does not require the inclusion of large amounts of data, Lumira was overall the safest and most comfortable option. Also, some members in our team had previous knowledge so it was easier to adapt

Enterprise wide implementation is a challenge with data security and trustedness. No easy installation can be done across the enterprise. no upgrade paths also available from SAP. They have so much of experience with desktop implementation, there it could be a controlled environment with a capital budget. These may be resolved in the upcoming releases

Return on Investment

Alteryx

  • Alteryx does an excellent job of integrating consumer and spatial data to calculate and visualize things like locations within a certain drive-time radius.
  • For visualization purposes I had to move the data to excel for some decent graphs.
  • It can become very expensive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • After Lumira Discovery training, a lot of business users were able to create reports and customize them according to their needs which in turn reduced the number of dashboard requests for the BI team.
  • Development time was significantly reduced for reports that were time sensitive.
  • Simple and standard UI was easy to standardize reports across the organization.
