SAP Lumira Discovery is SAP’s data visualization and discovery application. It facilitates data discovery, visualization, and analysis by assisting users with creation of dashboards, infographics, presentations, data facets, tag clouds, and more.SAP Lumira, great product, great access to customer base. Still not making strides mainly for lack of data connectivity and usability.We are SAP PartnerEdge partners. We develop data and visual extensions to extend the functionality of out-of-the box functionality. Currently we offer vSQL and vOLAP data access extensions. Both vSQL and vOLAP provide a visual interface to generate queries without having to know the SQL syntax.,Data access to disparate data sources. Data mashup. Ability to explore the data on desktop and schedule the scenarios on the server side to refresh the data real-time. Trusted data.,Extensive mobile device support. Add wow factors to data visualizations. Performance improvements. Native data acquisition capabilities. More SDK support to extend it.,7,Tableau Desktop and QlikView,Tableau Desktop, QlikView, MicroStrategy Analytics,4,5,10,5,Clean separation of data and meta-data from scenarios Version control and ACL on scenarios More server side support Interchangeability with Design Studio for more granular control over customized reports or dashboards where self-serve cannot accomplish the goals.,Heat maps between physicians, census and population health management SaaS based vertical BI solutions for SMB markets Provide an automated migration tool from Xcelsius dashboards to Lumira,Custom visualization template Re-usable query components with the help of data access extensions from Tassio Inc. Exploit Geofencing and extensive Geo mapping capabilities,No,Price Vendor Reputation Existing Relationship with the Vendor,Price vs Capabilities. Also vendor's commitment to support the missing features. We believe in SAP and their commitment to meet their customer needs. More than anything else, their products support more trusted data sources and security realms than any other stand-alone third-party tool. They changed their culture upside down to nurture the partner eco-system to extend the current product capabilities and make them more usable.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a major issue with the implementation,Enterprise wide installation of desktop software from IT perspective Challenges in upgrading individual desktop version Publishing to Lumira Server for BIP,6,Online training Self-taught,6,6,Yes, it is designed and built to be self-serve tool. Yes because it is used for data exploration, the knowledge on the tool is necessary but we feel the most of the experience is required on interpreting the data rather than using the tool. Any savvy user be able to use the tool right away.,2,Having a corporate template would create a consistent look and feel of all reports and scenarios. The best practice would be to follow the corporate brand guidelines and incorporate their own digital assets as much of as possible instead of coming up with individual taste. When these scenarios are distributed across the organization, they should have the same look and feel and meeting their style guides.,Some - we have done small customizations to the interface,Yes - we have added extensive custom code,The users often ask to reuse the queries that they use to acquire the data from non-SAP supported data sources. There must be a way to store them in the user preferences to keep re-using them. Also one of the recommended ways to save the Lumira files are to separate the data with meta data.,Yes,8,No,When we are working on our data access extension, we needed help from their engineering team on newer version of their SDK which is totally a re-write of this interface. Our extension that was developed using older version is a throw away because it would not work with newer version. The fundamental design philosophy was changed to use HTML based user interface vs supporting any programming language. We chose Java for our older version, we wanted to leverage the existing code base to make it to work with newer version of SDK. Their engineering team helped us a lot to get Java based user interface working with newer implementation of SDK.,Acquiring data from BW Acquiring data from CSV Merging different data sets after acquisition Creating hierarchies, drilldown reports,Data acquisition from MS SSAS until we found the solution from Tassio Data acquisition from MS Access until we found the solution from Tassio Distribute the scenarios, the data is stored along with scenarios Interoperability with design studio,Yes,6,6,9,7,Lumira server for BIP Lumira server for teams Design Studio,Design Studio Predictive Analytics Lumira for Cloud Analytics,File import/export API (e.g. SOAP or REST) Javascript widgets ETL tools,5,SDK must be updated to expose much more functionality than what we have today. It has limited functionality that is exposed which limits the level integration that can be done. In order to meet everybody's needs, SAP need to spend more time to give more powers to end-users to customize anyway they want, add more functionality to suit their needs.,8,8,The pricing for Lumira. Initially we thought that Lumira licenses were free for us since we are already SAP customer. We had to negotiate volume pricing and also the license model for Lumira is rather straight forward than ECC pricing model. SAP sales team understands this, and aggressive about this tools adoption.,I think SAP sales team will work with every customer to make Lumira more widespread adoption. They will work on the pricing as long as there is commitment from customer side to evaluate and provide enough feedback on the product that is not market tested and proven. Start small and make one department successful with it before making the enterprise wide installation.,Yes,S4HANA BW Improvements Performance Enhancements,usability design studio convergence advanced geo mapping,Yes,YesWindows
