The way it works with other SAP apps is a great factor which tilts the pointer in favor of SAP LD. By that I mean ability to import data from places like SAP HANA, BW, BO Universe, etc. provides a flexible way to cleanup and prepare data for analysis easily and quickly. The security features also help promote data governance and then it adds data integrity and finally it is safe to say that data which is cleaned up and prepped is one single source of truth.

Lumira is more powerful in some ways but also slightly more limited in others. While at least in my experience Lumira can feel somewhat cookie cutter in the options you have, overall you are able to get a better sense of understanding of the current state of things using Lumira. However, each business is different and you should really consider all your options.

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.

Normally uses around the world have suggested using SAP Lumia rather using others. It gives life to your data presenting in a beautiful way. This tool enables companies to benefit from their data using advanced visualization and unique analytic functionalities. SAP Lumia can be integrated with other products like SAP Business Suite, SAP Risk Management etc.

SAP Lumira - Another good SAP product for beautiful data visualizations

SAP Lumira is mainly for non technical persons. When one is not into much data and doesn't want to dig dip into data models and algorithms, it is very handy. But, if you are dealing with lots of data with huge variety and volume you should consider the alternatives, as the customization and support is much better for the other products.

  • Excel, SAS and Python
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.

For a full featured SAP environment, Lumira is the suitable platform for a BW, Hana, ECC universe or third party DB universe sourced reporting compared to all of the other analytical platforms.

Limited Lumira review

Compared with the built-in Cloud for Customer reporting suite, Lumira was quicker at processing figures and provides a greater range of reporting visualisations, as well as being much more user friendly for non-technical end users to pick up and use with minimal direction. However there is still the need to create the data sources in Cloud for Customer for bespoke objects etc., so that Lumira is able to consume them.

- Power BI has more features (like ETL) and more integration. Power BI Desktop is free.

- Tableau has better visual and better interactivity. Tableau is expensive.

Certain features that SAP BusinessObjects Lumira has are not as good as in the other software that we considered, but SAP BusinessObjects
Lumira was a more reliable program overall than some of the alternatives, which helped us decide to purchase this software versus the other options.

We chose SAP Business Objects Lumira versus other options mainly because we trust the vendor and have had good experiences with their software and customer service in the past. We found that the other software that we considered offered similar capabilities, and from past experience bugs can be an issue so we put a big emphasis on the support we would receive as part of our purchase decision.

  • Microsoft Excel
In India, users are already using this product and have got adapted to it. It's tough because it is not as beneficial as Lumira, but to bring a change in an Indian company is hard to implement.

Major reason to go for Lumira was it was part of SAP Business Objects family and most of the organization is using BO for most of their reporting needs.
