Being the self-service BI software, the team in my department strives on having queries that they can create as custom queries to fetch data for analysis and visualizations on the underlying data and sharing the results of those queries in a easy to interpret form with other users. They feel their needs are fulfilled to a very great extent by SAP LD. They are able to actually do a lot of data discovery very easily for lot of applications so that tells in an obvious manner that it can be integrated with lot of other systems. The on-prem solutions/installation makes it another factor in favor of SAP LD as a great tool.
  • 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.
  • The loading statuses and logs of integrated apps like SAP design studio - helps the users know which application is taking the time or blocked.
  • Consistent formatting tabs for charts and other visual dashboard options.
  • Bookmarking for which scripts have to be used still.
When working with the SAP ecosystem of apps, SAP LD is one of the best BI tools to go with. For analytics be it with cloud or mobile apps, it is really well suited. Its interface is most likely relatable with other popular BI tools like Tableau, Microsoft BI. Thus people switching from other BI apps for SAP LD to enjoy the interoperability and ease of working with SAP apps are in for a treat.

SAP Lumira has helped us make made more easy and friendly decisions for our IT team and our final users too.
It has helped us to develop a more intuitive dashboard and useful reports. We have been using it for years, and it works in combination with SAP BI and web intelligence too.
  • User-interface.
  • Searching.
  • Strong visualization of data.
  • Many sources are available.
  • Teamwork improvement.
  • Visualizations could be enhanced.
Lumira is great for big ETL scenarios where our customers want access to the main info in their dashboards.

SAP Lumira is used across the organisation by key users that have the need to do data discovery and extract conclusions. SAP Lumira Discovery is used in order to allow end-users to do their own reporting.
  • Visualisation
  • Intuitive to use
  • Many graphics, but very limited parameters
  • Poor to make dashboarding
SAP Lumira is a good tool, but I think there are other tools in the market that can offer more at the same price. Of course, that depends on your systems landscape. If you are a SAP-centric company, then go for Lumira, if you have other reporting tools, or many datasources which not all of them are SAP, explore other options.

SAP Lumira is used as a self-discovery tool. We can use the tool in order to create ad-hoc reports when we need to prepare a specific presentation or do some special analysis. We do not have published reports, only the data content we are able to use as a data source.
  • Easy of use
  • Graphics out of the box
  • Room for improvement in customization. Sometimes it struggles to get what you really need.
I would highly recommend it, at least as a self-discovery tool. It is easy to do multiple types of predefined reports and you can share it with other people in the organization if you have the SAP BI platform.

Take the scariness out of Big Data and put it to work for you!

Everyone has data, and spreadsheets have been around forever. More and more, clients are becoming more accustom to viewing information, whether professionally pertinent to their business or in journalism, in visual representations. Lumira is a step in that direction that helps our organization to bridge the gap between piles of data, and visual representations of that data which are more engaging, easier to digest and often times reveal relationships that were not as readily apparent otherwise.
  • Take large swaths of raw information and turn it into something approachable and relatable.
  • Minimize the role of IT departments being necessary for tasks that are better left to account managers, project managers and marketers as well as business owners.
  • While there is a cost involved, it is affordable and the return on investment is high.
  • 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.
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.

SAP Lumira enables our company to interpret massive amounts of internal data available and turn it into a visual report. This helps allow a sense of all data in various layouts and interpretations to better better business decisions and modifications. The software helps us do complete reporting and is an easy to use and understand platform with limitless options to present our data, sort and find it.
  • 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.
  • There isn't a current way to publish information into the cloud.
  • Limited data narrowing or crunching versus MS Office
Lumira is a powerful visualization tool that is good for presenting information and data to users for reporting and analyzing critical data. This has been a useful tool for our business in comparing and contrasting data from various projects to determine acquisitions and project opportunities.

SAP Lumira, a software to visualize your large data and allows users to explore data deep down. It helps to understand the data requirement, what needs to be done to grow your company. It is basically a BI tool designed for small or large companies. It can be used for accounting, reporting, make graphs and charts. Easy to load data and create graphs.
  • Easy to load data and use it. Sometimes we need technical help to create graphs but mostly it is easy once you learn.
  • Support numerous kind of data source.
  • Value for money.
  • Need a proper training to use.
  • Need to enhance integration with MS Excel.
  • Limited functionality.
The tool is great, easy to scale and is on budget to buy. It supports a large number of graphs to represent your report and make a presentation for clients. It uses numerous data sources which can be used. It needs to improve, there are a lot of features which other software provides such as maps, scheduling, formatting.

We have used Lumira in several projects, one of them was for analysis and creation of ad/hoc reports, and visualizing the results of a big/data analytical project. Another opportunity when we effectively used Lumira was analysis of random incidents, where a measurement was several measurement points (technical PCs with sensors, database and application server logs). When searching for patterns and irregularities, Lumira helped us to quickly visualize outages, indicating where to further search for the problem. Seeing performance of all components on a common time-scale is very helpful for quick orientation on when and where the irregularity happens. Considering into account several millions of rows in each log, Lumira did a good job. It is advisable though to use a really quick PC with and SSD hard drive, and save the work frequently.
  • Import of semi-structured data, logs.
  • Filtering.
  • Quick transformation of views from one type of graph to another.
  • Export of results as a report.
  • It is quick.
  • We need OFFLINE viewing of data, to be able to save the reports to and iPad in HTML5 or similar format, and be able to go through the graphs with some level of interaction. I know it exports stories ... this is something more advanced.
  • Conversion to time is not sufficient, it comprises only seconds, in the IT world mostly we work with milliseconds. Not a big deal, but can be pre-built.
  • In case something is impossible to visualize, it simply says: "unable to show more than 10 000 values or similar". What about providing some suggestions on how to limit the scope?
  • What about preparing some templates for analysis of e.g. IT logs, supply chain with some predefined reports, sourcing tasks, location based reports .... some simple building blocks, that can be further tailored.
  • Currently working with SAP Lumira Discovery and the application keeps crashing by certain data sets and reports.
  • Not very stable lately, it is a good idea to save regularly work in progress, not to lose the changes in case of a crash.
It is well suited for:
  • A quick view on logs (or any other data) relating to time scale.
  • A quick view on new data.
  • For viewing and experimenting with HANA results.
Less appropriate (or not appropriate at all):
  • When we need to visualize sequences with start/stop e.g. it could visualize workflows, loops, or waiting times between steps.
  • Also it can not merge several data sources in one (or the functions are hidden somewhere?)

SAP Lumira - Another good SAP product for beautiful data visualizations

SAP Lumira with the brand name SAP is a strong product for data visualization and used by my finance and accounts teams majorly. It has great data visualization and supports the users for non-data fields also. The accounts team uses this for some financial data visualization and draft it into the presentation.
  • Data visualization is near to perfect
  • One doesn't need to be a data expert to use this
  • It has great Business Intelligence features
  • The main problem we faced is that we couldn't use external plotting methods
  • Customization of data charts takes a lot of time
  • The inbuilt features are only good for non-technical persons
When one of your team lacks in terms of being technically profound and has daily usage of data visualization, presenting charts and calculating simple financial models, SAP Lumira is a very good product to use. But, if your community is technical friendly and one has to use various plotting methods with huge variety of data, it lacks in that field. For that, I would prefer some more sound data visualization platform.

Firstly, SAP lumira is one amazing product that I would use daily for making data-driven decision. It has become easy for visualization. We use a lot of real-time data to process and make decisions in a short time frame. It's mostly used in the ops department. We were handling improvement projects where we had to reduce wait time and delivery time. With SAP lumira, we were able to see where the maximum time was spent in the whole process and how to improve upon it.
  • Recommended charts option will give you a quick overlook at your data
  • Customization of the charts and graphs as per our needs
  • The interface is user-friendly and there are videos to help you to navigate along in case you get lost
  • Easy visualization, more detailed reports, good for presentation
  • Manual data entry in LUMIRA
SAP lumira is well suited for medium and large enterprises but would not suit well for small and local businesses. It is well suited for organizations handling businesses across the world such as global trade, global sales, etc. It would not be suited for small businesses like hyper local logistics, small food shops or local food chains.

Lumira is an ad-hoc analytical presentation tool for non-technical business management decision makers and end users.

I have proposed the Lumira solution for business IT heads and data analysis consultants. In the process of rolling out Lumira we started with the treasury and risk management departments. It was a successful launch allowing SAP BW data, and non-SAP Data to be presented in a meaningful way, with graphical and geographical interactive dashboards. Lumira overcomes issues with the Tableau platform regarding Microsoft SQL and Oracle DB as the multi-sourced direct universe, and SAP BW as the BEx direct source. Even though there are some limitations, waiting for the Lumira 2.0 with design studio to fulfill everything under one roof as SAP BO and Lumira 2.0.
  • Multiple Data sources enabled single tool
  • Publishing availabilities on the web, and mobile devices
  • Multiple components and canvases on single display
  • Multiple graphical objects with drilling facilities on single display
  • Improve the memory utilization with a new technique which is really an essential requirement
Lumira well suited for at a glance final high-level KPI analysis but it does not really fulfill management related detail analytics of a million records.

A trial version is being used by the sales team to extract and manipulate SAP Cloud for customer sales data, and they use Lumira to create meaningful management reports.
  • Quick transformation of data into tailored dashboard reports
  • Easy access to SAP Cloud for customer data using the SAP add-on
  • Very fast processing capability with no noticeable lag
  • 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.
Lumira is well suited for users that have little or no reporting experience but need to be able to create reporting dashboards, especially for management where the ability to manipulate the graphical output to the right format is key.

I've worked for a SAP Business One partner. We sell Lumira attached to SBO. We wanted the clients to explore all the data that they get from their ERPs, and other data sources, and visualize new insights, trends and use the geo data for exploring their business behavior. Also we we're working on developing plugins for Lumira, to add value to the product and [address] specific issues of Colombian companies.
  • Prepare the data for exploration
  • Receive multiple datasources even if isn't a SAP product
  • Lumira is very intuitive
  • The way that the user [can] export the results is very limited
  • Use a more detailed map engine
  • Add more examples, documentation and templates
SAP BusinessObjects Lumira is very appropriate when all your data comes normalized, and you need to get a very general and detailed visualization of your data, and is not appropriate when all your data is unorganized and you don't know what you want to know.

We are a software service provider organisation and have a gold partnership with SAP. We are demonstrating the capabilities of Lumira for our prospects and help them achieve bigger and in-depth business decisions. With Lumira, we are able to answer complex business KPIs with the help of Lumira's visualizations.
  • Eye catching easy to to use data visualizations.
  • Support to merge heterogeneous data sources and prepare it according to requirements.
  • Sharing the custom user stories in SAP BI/BO repository and give the end users flexibility to play around with it.
  • Almost no coding required, still fantastic outcomes.
  • Infographics can be made easier to use.
  • Mobile and handheld device orientations and rendering could be improved.
  • Time series sliders can be added which was there in dashboard designer.
In today's world it’s all about getting information from raw data and in that area SAP BusinessObjects Lumira is performing significantly well. Probably this will bring the end of the traditional multi-page tabular report. If you can’t visualize your data, you can’t make decisions out of it.

We recommend the best tool for each customer, be it Power BI, Tableau or SAP Lumira. It depends on what kind of data source they have, available licences etc.
  • Working with files (CSV, Excel).
  • Ease of use, easy to start.
  • Quick start videos are really helpful.
  • Connecting to Micrsoft SQL Server requires JDBC drivers and add many steps.
  • A cheaper web portal should be available.
[It's well suited] if the customer is already using SAP server products or most the data is available in files. It is less of a good fit if the customer uses Microsoft databases.

I utilize Lumira to visualize HANA calc views for a defense management company interested in 8 different monitoring activities within the organization.
  • Real time connection to HANA.
  • Simple to use.
  • Needs more options to filter. Right now, it's single and multi drop down. What about sliders or radio buttons?
  • More graphical displays, such as dual axis bar graphs that allow for block overlays. Right now, the design features are only 25% of what alternative solutions may offer.
  • Color Legend is not dynamic.
  • Changing the data source, where missing fields no longer exist, will disappear... as opposed to leaving the view waiting for an alternative, available fields.
Due to its visual limitations, I would much rather use Tableau than Lumira. I have found the simplicity of using Lumira to fall short in comparison to other services that I always have available to me.

SAP BusinessObjects Lumira is mostly used by the departments who put together reports for management but it is not used all the time by every department. The departments that I have experience using Lumira with are logistics, customer service, and procurement.
  • useful visualisations
  • not too much of a hassle to use (can figure out the program even if you don't have advanced training)
  • fully integrated with multiple data information platforms
  • expensive
  • the dashboard is too busy
Because of the cost of SAP BusinessObjects Lumira I would not recommend it wholeheartedly because I would expect the program to be a bit more refined (cleaner and easier to use UI) and to have more flexibility for the price. SAP BusinessObjects Lumira is great when you have to create a visual that will be used to demonstrate something that would otherwise be complicated to explain without just words or regular charts.

In our organization we use SAP Business Objects Lumira alongside our reporting software to create visualisations as needed. We use it when we want to highlight in presentations (usually to management) and need a more specific visual aid than can be created easily with our reporting and analytics software.
  • Eye-catching visualisations
  • Dashboard easy to use
  • Cluttered UI
  • Static visualisations
I use SAP Business Objects Lumira to create visualisations when I need to clearly and visually convey something that would be complicated to do so with just words, or simple graphs/graphics. I do not think that this program would be the most effective for regular reporting needs though, at least that has been my experience with it.

Currently I am working as SAP Functional Consultant and as a part of my job role I do implementation of SAP Lumira at our client location.
  • First advantage is that you can install SQL Drivers and further connect SQL with Lumira. This will help to use SQL query in order to import data into Lumira Directly.
  • Advance Graphs are readily available for user, which can be used easily with a handsome knowledge of Statistics.
  • You can also create different visualization and altogether put them along with each other. This will be created as a Story in Lumira which becomes a Presentation for the user.
  • SAP Lumira provides a stage to connect to your SQL database. Customers have frequently asked us a question that why SQL query already saved in SAP Product such SAP B1 is not available in Lumira to be selected. That means customer wants to link SQL saved queries of SAP B1 with Lumira, but not manually to be copied and paste.
  • Also the queries created and used in Lumira don't get saved, not if the user wants to run the same query for another time period. He needs to again do manual copy paste and create the same story, but cannot update the saved one.
  • Also users look for some pre-designed examples readily available with Lumira Installation for their own reference.
It's quite useful for Internal reporting, Management reporting and Head office Reporting.

SAP Lumira was was used across the whole organization. The business problem that it addressed was the gap that still exists between the European and U.S sectors of the company. In addition, it helped us understand our type of industry in both parts of the world. For example, any major differences, such as something that works well in one geography, that we can implement in the other if needed. It helped us to figure out what works best for a particular geographical area.
  • User friendly, which allows you to consolidate a major data base on certain criteria. For example we were able to analyze revenue data for all materials across all 7 ½ years and find out which of the material current materials did provide that data for a certain year.
  • Our company Global Bike was able to pull the material quantity sold per year to help forecast inventory levels for the future.
  • Global Bike was able to see if there was seasonality in the revenue (USD) earned over the last 8 years. Further more, we were able to see which month had the highest revenue. It helped make important decisions in regards to resources for a particular time of the year.
  • More formatting options for visual aid.
  • Often hard to filter out data with certain criteria. Instant preview of the new filter as one hovers over the options would help.
  • It seemed to lag at times when we were creating a slide show or report.
It was well suited when choosing the different types of visual representations, bar charts, pie charts, lines, etc. We had option to understand the data at hand.

This is used by many of our C users as well as senior level and mid senior level managers to view reports in both visual formats as well as tabular reports. We are able to create cool visual reports for a lot of monthly, quarterly and yearly sales and revenue and forecast analysis.
  • Charting
  • Hierarchy
  • Filtering
  • Quick analysis on real time data
  • Easy connectivity with SAP HANA data source
  • More design features in report
  • Style based reporting
  • Ready to use icons in graphical report
Mainly suitable for use with SAP HANA data sources with real time analysis capability. I would like to get rid of the limitation of 1,000,000 data pointers to view in Lumira. As we work with huge data sets, this shouldn't be a limitation. Enterprise business always handles a lot more data pointers at a time.

Working with Toyota, and all departments are using the tool. This was introduced by me in the org and people started preferring it over QlikView, but since the tool is restricted to 64 bit OS for developers, a few key users find this to be a hurdle, as they are still on 32 bit because some other tools in the organization don't work well on 64 bit OD.

The tool is widely used to addresses national sales compared to the market study, and the overall service division comparison for the timely servicing and parts sold.
  • Presentation of data the way we want
  • Bit easier to use compared to dashboard designer and QlikView
  • Can be published in the BO Enterprise and can be shared and scheduled the way required by the user
  • Restricted to 64 bit OS only
  • Getting new versions and new features every 2 / 3 months
  • Crashes if huge amount is data is selected to analyse
