SAP Lumira is very good self service analytical tool with powerful capabilities. However need to look into other SAP products in BI space, like SAP SAC. SAP Lumira is more used for custom and complex analytical need in business intelligence area. Also SAP Lumira is going out of maintenance in coming future replaced by SAP SAC.

It has good features, the data connectivity and merging is really good, and it has helped our IT team. Nevertheless, it can sometimes be hard to use and some of the features can be found outdated. As we don't have a lot of data, it is a decent tool for our data analytics, but I wouldn't recommend for bigger or more complex businesses with large amounts of data.

SAP Lumira Discovery is for niche audience. It serves it purpose well and it is not fair to except new features or updates when the future is clearly SAP Analytics Cloud. But the features are good enough for anyone who has on- premise SAP data source and in need of a self-service data analytics tool.

I am confidently giving this rating as it is very flexible to use and it has many things to rate it as it is. The amount of harnessing data and the process of drill-down analysis and the customizable dashboard are very easy and flexible to use. The heatmap the rows and columns are very adjustable for use.

An easy SAP platform to implement when getting started with the product and to set all the features is easy and it generates quality marketing services. The functionalities for the data migration are very powerful and the predictive data analytics are easily created and the lead management functionalities are also easy and very flexible tools.

SAP does a lot of usability testing, but it seems like no one is really listening to those sessions. The product engineers don't think much of their users, even the ones who volunteer for their usability testing as none of the major headaches that are pointed out don't seem to ever be addressed.

The SAP Lumira is easy to install and learn. Lumira is a perfect tool for the end-users as it is easy to use and the built-in functions can manipulate data as well. Lumira has a lot in store for the developers as well. It is a power-packed tool.

Any visualization tool must provide greater and easy access to corporate varied data sources, ability to provide an easy data acquisition mechanisms both at design and run-time. Another feature is support of variety of devices, form factors and equally good performance to visualize the data. Aslo the ability to protect organization's sensitive data. I don't think Lumira is strong in any of the above mentioned areas.
