Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

I used Lumira to visually analyse large volumes of plant originated data and manipulate it to improve the ease of analysis. I was evaluating it as an option for inclusion in a product that would be deployed to our end user customers.
  • It's good as a data visualisation and investigation tool.
  • Very simple and intuitive to use.
  • It is far better than using products like Microsoft Excel for this purpose.
  • There are constraints on the mechanisms used to import the data. For example, I was importing data from a .CSV file containing separate numeric and text representations of the date associated with the other data in the row. Lumira was unable to directly interpret these data as time & date fields without splitting the text information into individual columns.
  • The data manipulation functionality for imported data could be improved, particularly the ability to create sub-columns derived from data already in the source table
It is very good for rapid prototyping of data visualisations with real data. The ability to export the prototypes to the Lumira server makes it easy to deploy them once you are happy with the prototype.
