I have evaluated products such a Tableau Desktop and Splunk and the biggest difference I realized was the ability to include interactive controls in the output. For instance if I wanted to include the ability to filter by a category or filter by a date range, the controls can easily be embedded in other products.

SAP Analytical Cloud is more advanced and go to product from SAP side and thus the use case identification and the need of the organization need to be looked into, before deciding the product. The performance of SAP SAC is also better than SAP Lumira, and SAP SAC is used for integrated planning (called Extended Planning and Analytics).

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.

SAP Analytics Cloud is better than SAP Lumira Discovery in so many ways starting from data connectivity, modelling, self- service analytics, complex applications, planning to Augmented Analytics. When there are policy restrictions, then without much choice, users can go for Lumira Discovery which is decent enough for light weight data exploration requirements.

I stack up against 360 dialog WhatsApp Business API tools as it has very weak internet connection and it cannot store data and sometimes in WhattsApp BI tools the searching, connecting, acquiring, and merging data is becoming difficult. I choose SAP Lumiera Discovery as the data provided by surfing here is very flexible and up to the mark and is very easy to transfer and connect.

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 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.

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.

1. SAP Lumira doesn't need an expert on data analytics. It does all the hard work for you.
2. Cost effective and can be implemented with little technical effort.
3. Training costs are very minimum and the possibilities of returns are huge.
4. SAP Lumira has more user-friendly and intuitive UI.
5. More trust-able with data, calculations than any other software.

  • Splunk for data analysis and viewing, but this is more an industrial type of tool.
  • Othwerwise Excel and some extensions
  • Spend Cube in sourcing - rather specialized application

Lumira is the worst. If you are a total SAP shop you might prefer to use WebI, BeX, or even Crystal Reports/Dashboards before making the leap into Lumira. If you have the option and are already a MS 365 user, download PowerBI, it is cheaper, easier and more powerful.

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.

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.

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.
