Infographics derived from specific data sources appears to be well suited for development using Lumira. The development of executive level dashboards was less appropriate from my perspective. The software does not provide sufficient demonstration or samples for the users to learn from in my opinion.

SAP Lumira Discovery is a flexible, accurate, and time-saving tool. It works pretty well if you have high volumes of internal data available to be analyzed and transform into a visual report for decision-making related to resource planning and scheduling. It is easy to use and deployment in a professional setting requires not a great deal of effort to obtain optimal results.

SAP Lumira helped to create intuitive and real-time dashboards in a story format to the organization. However with new capabilities of SAP, like SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) providing more planning and analytical capabilities. Thus the identification of the use cases with the available products should be done. SAC is more integrated and the go to product in SAP roadmap.

It is well suited for data connecting and understanding of the same. It simplifies the work of the IT team thru the development of a graphical narration to describe that same data so that it can be easily reviewed. It is well suited for businesses with large amounts of data.

Great for analyzing large amounts of data that require visualization. Great for sharing data with a large number of users and a big audience. Less suited for quick analysis of small amounts of data that don’t require visualization and just used for my own work.

Can be used when there is strict policy against loading data in cloud. Very basic tool for exploring the data and can be a better alternative for SAP Analytics Cloud when there is restrictions with respect to cloud because of security policies. Not suited for huge or performance intensive queries.

SAP Lumira Discovery is well suited for collecting, acquiring,manipulating and merging data's in types of geographical and geopolitical things like weather forecast, population and democracy. It is less suitable for providing personal details of any person's id like personal detail of any individual or Banking details of any individual.

Powerful software and easy platform among the SAP platforms and it allows easy marketing through multiple marketing and advertising system and the integration that this software has is effective. Though SAP Lumira Discovery is easy to generate excellent predictive data analytics which is reliable on business decision making and also enhancement of the project productivity.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 is well suited for processing a large amount of data. Analysing those data and work on it as needed. Variety of graphs, charts for identifying trends on market. Format all the data with your own measures, and to apply needed formulas without any expertise on it. Friendly UI, easy to use and learn within a few days.

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?)

It is suited for an organization that is totally invested in SAP already and does not want to spend more money for a visualization system that will more meet their needs. A complete SAP shop would be the only time I would recommend it.

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.

When working with Lumira, we noticed that there are not that many charts available to do any statistical analysis. for example No Control charts, Histogram, Gantt chart, Highlight Table. Hope Lumira can incorporate some of these features in later versions.

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.
