SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud is great for collaborative planning. It allows users to work together on plans, discuss specific adjustments, and to create planning processes for other users to follow. Its BI capabilities also make it stand out among the competition, and it's possible to create a very customized, user-friendly planning experience.

SAP Lumira Discovery

Lumira is especially well suited where you want to customize and create tailored benchmarks for different segments of your business. Whether that means making information available to department heads, directors or even account directors and managers.What really is valuable is the confidence you have when using the dashboards for decision making and monitoring the success of those decisions in a tailored manner.

Pros

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Functional desing. Easy to learn and develop
  • Live connectivity to SAP sources so the data is not needed to be in the cloud (important for some business for data privacity)
  • SAC is working in different functionalities
  • SAC is growing in a scheduled way so you can know which roadmap will be the following months
  • Easy SSO with SAP sources

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • Data discovery and integration with applications.
  • Ability to generate visual reports with meaningful business insights.
  • Integration with Microsoft office.
  • Integration with SAP Cloud platform and BI tools like Tableau.
  • Amazing mobile interface with responsive UI experience.
  • Ability to generate visual dashboards with charts and maps.

Cons

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Performance: in some scenarios, the tool has big troubles in its performance when the volume of data is quite big (mainly with tables and filters).
  • Maturity: as it is a quite new tool, it is not mature enough to satisfy some business necessities. Also, the tool has some bugs which should be basic for a reporting tool.
  • Mobility: I believe mobile apps for SAP Analytics Cloud should be improved (both for Android and iOs devices). They are not as good as the web version. Moreover, stories for mobile devices have to be created in a particular template, which can be annoying in some cases.
Alex Gutierrez | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • Control over data import formatting - for example where amount and currency values are imported there is not enough control over the transformation and formatting and this has caused us data import difficulties where values read have been truncated due to punctuation in the amount fields.
  • The user interface is simplified, but the terminology and screen layout do not always make it obvious how to start the process for a new user - for example to add a new data source or create a new report.

Any visualization tool must provide greater and easy access to corporate varied data sources, ability to provide an easy data acquisition mechanisms both at design and run-time. Another feature is support of variety of devices, form factors and equally good performance to visualize the data. Aslo the ability to protect organization's sensitive data. I don't think Lumira is strong in any of the above mentioned areas.

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

SAC support allows you to ensure that your company has the specialized support during and after implementation, which means that your company will not stop its operations due to the operation of the system, since, in case of doubts or problems with the system , the team of experts will solve them in the shortest possible time.
Continuous support is very important, since it allows to obtain the maximum performance of the solution and to obtain a balance between the functionality, the performance of the tool and an efficient support service.
SAP has a specialized team dedicated exclusively to providing advice to support staff and end users, solving technical and operational problems and providing support in the additional requirements is an added value for your business that gives way to continuous improvement and maximum use of the system.

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.

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

SAP Analytics Cloud

This tool does not match up to its competitors like microstrategy and Tableau when it comes to data visualization. It takes more time and effort creating dashboards and building schema objects in this tool. It is not as easy to learn as other competitive tools. Implementation is also not as smooth as other data visualization tools and platforms available on the market. Creating ad-hoc reports is not as quick and easy compared to its competitors.

Lumira offered more in depth visualization for reporting and presentation, this tool took some time to learn the ins and outs to but after training this was a pretty straightforward data display software tool that was very helpful showing data searched and narrowed down to offer an insight on direction.

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

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Multiple SAP sources can be connected into one software.
  • No lag time with data or analytics. Crucial for our real estate market which is always changing.
  • The only negative ROI would be the training and steep learning curve we had to invest in this.

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • For my client, the cost of Tableau made Lumira attractive but unfortunately, due to limitations on Lumira... the client is thinking the Tableau investment may have been better for achieving business objectives.
  • Data size limitiations.
