Overall Satisfaction with SAP Lumira

This is a great program to do initial visualization and analysis. Its simple enough that almost anyone can use it and be able to tease out some of the more detailed complexities of a dataset. It should cover all but the most complicated business scenarios and it has the advantage of close integration with SAP data sources. It's certainly worth a look by anyone considering a new visualization option.

I would note that it took a bit of horsepower on my system but that isn't unusual for visualization products such as this one. In general, the interaction was smooth but I would recommend running this with at least 8GB of RAM. It does run well under a virtual machine (Parallels, in this case).

  • Good for dumping it in and exploring the data.
  • Nice job of presenting options for visualization.
  • Decent output format.
  • Some of the dimension capabilities are buried under a weird menu system. One particular visualization required a particular order.
  • The online version is disappearing.
Lumira is a junior version of Tableau. I would go for Tableau in an instant but it is also 10 times the price. For smaller jobs, Lumira can do the job but it has a lot of growing up to do.
Well suited for initial data exploration. It takes a bit of getting used to but it has a relatively easy learning curve. They could really use some video lesson support for the product but please don't do the canned "non-examples" but go for some real interesting visualizations and then show how to build them.
