Take the scariness out of Big Data and put it to work for you!

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Take large swaths of raw information and turn it into something approachable and relatable.
  • Minimize the role of IT departments being necessary for tasks that are better left to account managers, project managers and marketers as well as business owners.
  • While there is a cost involved, it is affordable and the return on investment is high.
  • Even though the process of creating visualizations of data is now greatly improved, it could still be a lot better as users become accustomed to this kind of tool and bring forward edge cases the developers did not anticipate.
  • It would be awesome to have a cross platform tool that works on more than just Windows.
  • Some options for specific graphs feel limiting.

  • Limited data narrowing or crunching versus MS Office

Pros and Cons

  • Import of semi-structured data, logs.
  • Filtering.
  • Quick transformation of views from one type of graph to another.
  • Export of results as a report.
  • It is quick.
  • We need OFFLINE viewing of data, to be able to save the reports to and iPad in HTML5 or similar format, and be able to go through the graphs with some level of interaction. I know it exports stories ... this is something more advanced.
  • Conversion to time is not sufficient, it comprises only seconds, in the IT world mostly we work with milliseconds. Not a big deal, but can be pre-built.
  • In case something is impossible to visualize, it simply says: "unable to show more than 10 000 values or similar". What about providing some suggestions on how to limit the scope?
  • What about preparing some templates for analysis of e.g. IT logs, supply chain with some predefined reports, sourcing tasks, location based reports .... some simple building blocks, that can be further tailored.
  • Currently working with SAP Lumira Discovery and the application keeps crashing by certain data sets and reports.
  • Not very stable lately, it is a good idea to save regularly work in progress, not to lose the changes in case of a crash.

Limited Lumira review

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Quick transformation of data into tailored dashboard reports
  • Easy access to SAP Cloud for customer data using the SAP add-on
  • Very fast processing capability with no noticeable lag
  • Control over data import formatting - for example where amount and currency values are imported there is not enough control over the transformation and formatting and this has caused us data import difficulties where values read have been truncated due to punctuation in the amount fields.
  • The user interface is simplified, but the terminology and screen layout do not always make it obvious how to start the process for a new user - for example to add a new data source or create a new report.

Lumira Falls Short to other available visualization tools

Score 4 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Real time connection to HANA.
  • Simple to use.
  • Needs more options to filter. Right now, it's single and multi drop down. What about sliders or radio buttons?
  • More graphical displays, such as dual axis bar graphs that allow for block overlays. Right now, the design features are only 25% of what alternative solutions may offer.
  • Color Legend is not dynamic.
  • Changing the data source, where missing fields no longer exist, will disappear... as opposed to leaving the view waiting for an alternative, available fields.

SAP Lumira - A Useful Tool for Graphical Analysis and Reporting

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • First advantage is that you can install SQL Drivers and further connect SQL with Lumira. This will help to use SQL query in order to import data into Lumira Directly.
  • Advance Graphs are readily available for user, which can be used easily with a handsome knowledge of Statistics.
  • You can also create different visualization and altogether put them along with each other. This will be created as a Story in Lumira which becomes a Presentation for the user.
  • SAP Lumira provides a stage to connect to your SQL database. Customers have frequently asked us a question that why SQL query already saved in SAP Product such SAP B1 is not available in Lumira to be selected. That means customer wants to link SQL saved queries of SAP B1 with Lumira, but not manually to be copied and paste.
  • Also the queries created and used in Lumira don't get saved, not if the user wants to run the same query for another time period. He needs to again do manual copy paste and create the same story, but cannot update the saved one.
  • Also users look for some pre-designed examples readily available with Lumira Installation for their own reference.

Consolidate your data to create important decisions.

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • User friendly, which allows you to consolidate a major data base on certain criteria. For example we were able to analyze revenue data for all materials across all 7 ½ years and find out which of the material current materials did provide that data for a certain year.
  • Our company Global Bike was able to pull the material quantity sold per year to help forecast inventory levels for the future.
  • Global Bike was able to see if there was seasonality in the revenue (USD) earned over the last 8 years. Further more, we were able to see which month had the highest revenue. It helped make important decisions in regards to resources for a particular time of the year.
  • More formatting options for visual aid.
  • Often hard to filter out data with certain criteria. Instant preview of the new filter as one hovers over the options would help.
  • It seemed to lag at times when we were creating a slide show or report.
