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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

[Lumira was well suited for] Our client [who] was facing some issues in analysing their different businesses in a single time [frame], because they were not able to storyboard to help them analyse their business for different geographies at one time.

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.

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.
