SAP HANA

SAP HANA has been incredibly helpful in moving forward with real-time BW reporting. Users no longer need to wait for the analytics they need but are able to generate their reporting instantly. In addition, within the finance module, it has allowed our users to run multiple processes at once shortening the time to complete their business activities, especially during the close cycle.

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 HANA

  • In-memory computation - resolve all slow performance issues to great extent.
  • Column storage - reduce memory footprint and cost of hardware.
  • Agile and quick development reduced development efforts significantly.
  • Connectivity with SAP and non-SAP systems - helped to get all data under one umbrella for consolidated reporting.

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • The software is good for charting data to present visualized information for current and upcoming ideas of business transactions and opportunities.
  • Data sorting and charting for use with SAP and can be used by users to support data and visualize what is being highlighted.
  • Value wise Lumira is a very simple and straightforward tool to use and is user friendly.

Cons

SAP HANA

  • Personally I believe the UI could be much more compact and I see improvement areas.
  • Mobile application and desktop are very different.
  • Sometimes you need type-in help on mouse hover for faster input and selection.
  • Now HANA is going cloud where data and security becomes a concern for larger companies. We want to see a benchmark company in manufacturing domain with such a large retail presence. I see there are areas for improvement in that.

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.

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

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

The support portal is fairly easy to navigate and always available. Sometimes I can find what I need by just reading the documentation or SAP community blog posts. If I have to open a ticket I have always had good quality service and the issue was eventually resolved. The support could be improved by providing faster responses.

They have been very supportive to listen to our problems and resolve them quickly. Their customer engagement team works hand-in-hand and treat our success is their success. They are the liaison between us and their engineering teams to get access to and resolve the issues on a timely manner, otherwise our issues would have been lost

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 HANA

I have used Teradata which is a row-level storage database. It was slow in reporting data from the table. Then we moved to HP Vertica which was a columnar storage but it doesn't support procedure. Now we are using SAP HANA, which is excellent as it has in-memory data storage and returns the results fast.

It has better visualization than the above-mentioned software. It is much easier to use SAP Lumira for quick data visualization without any hitches. We are confident in the product and it has never failed to deliver what we looked for. Our efficiency has increased 3 fold since we used the product and it's quick.

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 HANA

  • Since implementing HANA we have been able to save several million dollars a year in operating room supplies ($9 million last fiscal year).
  • It has allowed us to improve our processes to save $1 million dollars in our Laboratory Services
  • We have used it as part of our month end close to save over 20 hours every month of manual reporting.

  • 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.
